DIY Mario Birthday Theme

If you’ve been reading this blog for quite some time now, you will notice that I don’t really splurge on birthday party because I love intimate celebration. A simple and inexpensive celebration is what I always wanted. Every year we celebrated our birthdays in different ways, it depends on our time and budget.

Last Saturday, my son turned six years old and few months before his birthday, I was thinking how we are going to celebrate his birthday. 

1. No birthday parties allowed in his new school. 

2. His birthday falls on weekend. 
3. Three months before his birthday, I received the school calendar and surprise! educational field trip namin sa birthday niya. 

But still I asked him what is his birthday theme, my son wanted Mario Birthday Theme so I was searching for ideas since August. I was planning to have a simple birthday celebration at home. I’m still hoping and praying na baka mabago pa yung schedule ng field trip. 

Unfortunately, it didn’t happen so we celebrated his special day, day before his birthday. My husband just called my in-laws few hours before the party. We only have cake and pizza for the food. 

Sharing with you, my DIY Mario Birthday Theme

    i think that we will not have intimate celebration for my baby sa mga upcoming birthdays nya. Baka di pumayag ang mga lola na di bongga celebration ng apo nila, ok lang basta sila may sagot.. hehehe!

    1. Unang apo kasi so bongga talaga lagi yan. :)

  4. Galing. I am now prepping for my unica hija's 1st birthday. the first question is - gaano kaya kalaki magagastos ko?!! I should DIY!!!!

  5. Great sis. As early as now, I'm thinking of a theme na for my son's 5th birthday next year. I asked him and he said, Avengers daw.

  6. I love intimate celebrations! How I wish kaya ko din tong gawin gusto ko small celebration lang talaga eh kaya lang pagsasabayin ko ang 1st birthday at binyag nila they are twins. I love all your DIY!
