Mario's 30th Birthday Party

Last weekend we threw a 30th birthday party for Michelle's husband, Mario. He grew up playing the heck out of Super Mario Bros., so we knew that a Mario party it would be. Michelle did the invitations while Summer took care of the cake. We both organized food together. This is generally how things go anyways! Since Mario's birthday is in February, the weather is always very unpredictable (especially in Southern California). He insisted that we do a BBQ, so a BBQ it was! Well, turns out the rains came in that night and poor Mario (who doesn't let anyone use his grill except him) had to stand in the cold rain grilling up a bunch of hamburgers, hot dogs, and kielbasa. We were going to set up tables and chairs in the backyard but when the rains came we quickly moved inside. It was cramped, but functional and fun. That's the name of the game: adapting to each situation as needed! Here are some fun pictures from the party:

Invitations:
Michelle used the Cricut and her printer to cut out and print all the little details on this card. It was one of the most fun cards she's ever made!



Food and Table Set Up:
(Pardon the checkerboard look in the kitchen; we're working on it!)
Here's all the food laid out in the kitche.
 Drinks, sides, and the cake (we'll get to that part in a sec!)


 Some party-goers having a good time!

And the pi├Ęce de r├ęsistance:
