Mario Kart Party Decorations
Remember, this is all about the colors of the rainbow!! You want it to be as colorful as possible. Before the party, try to get a few of the character off the internet and blow them up as large as you can and mount them on foam board. These make GREAT decorations! If you can find one or two of them in their carts, even better! If you don't have access to blow them up yourself than consider purchasing either a Mario Kart Poster or Mario Kart Wall Decals. The wall decals (seen to the right), although a bit pricey, are really neat as they are removable after the party and are a great way to decorate your child's room!
Mylar Gold Star Balloons
To decorate the air consider adding mylar gold star balloons. These are a great addition as the Gold Star is the 'invincible' item for all Super Mario games! To make them look like the star in the game you can take black paper cardstock and add eyes to them.
Decorate the Entrance
It all starts as the kids walk up to the door. If at all possible, have some of the balloons attached to the mailbox and a foam board character or Mario Kart cardboard cutout meeting the kids at the doorway. You can even chalk up a race path coming up to the front door. Have the Mario theme music playing as the kids walk through the front door. Have the balloons, steamers and curly ribbon leading the way from the front door to the party area. If possible, let the kids stop and have their picture taken with their favorite character. You can do this by either having a few people dress up in Super Mario costumes or by having a Mario Kart cardboard cut-out (or standup) which they can pose beside. Either option makes a great to addition to their thank you card or Mario Kart party favors.
Add colorful confetti and gold star confetti to the table where food will be served and any other party areas as well. Have a large sign over the food area that says “ PIT STOP – FUEL UP HERE!!!” Add checkered flags from fishing line above the food table. If you have any smaller pictures of the Mario Bros characters, put a Mario Bros. character in between each checkered flag. Put a checkered flag tablecloth down to cover the table. You can use either primary color plates and checkered napkins or Mario Kart themed paper plates, napkins and cups. If you choose the Mario themed option than consider a Mario Kart party pack as you receive all the decoration items, tableware and more in a bundle which ends up saving you money!
Finally, don't forget to add your Mario Kart pinata to the party. A pinata is a great multipurpose party supply as it can help decorate the room plus sometime during the party you can add it to the Mario Kart party games. Kids love the idea of hitting an object and having candy come out and who can blame them?
