You can buy or print a Super Mario and play pin the star on Super Mario.

How cute, try buying the costumes online.

You can also add on the invitations that guest are welcomed to wear Super Mario brother costumes or clothes.

here are some games i found....

Super Mario Brothers Birthday Party Games and Activities

Well, the obvious entertainment here is to set up the video games systems and let the kids play all the Mario games you have. See if family and friends have any system or TVs they can lend you.

You can also arrange to have an obstacle course or set of mini games for the kids to compete in. Set up a few short courses, and theme them like Mario levels. The first "level" can be your standard Mario obstacles:

Goomba Hop - Have the kids jump up and down through a series of hula hoops set out in a hop scotch pattern.

Save Yoshi's Egg - Have an spoon race with eggs that have been decorated with green spots.
Find the Coins - Hide a paper cutout of a coin in one of a selection of boxes and then shuffle. Lets the kids choose until they find the one with a Mario coin in it!
Hot Bomb-ombs - In this version of hot potato, the kids toss a Bomb-omb! Have all of the kids sit or stand in a circle. One child is chosen as "Mario" and he or she begins passing a black ball (the Bomb-omb) around the circle, while the "Mario" turns his/her head with eyes closed. Everyone must accept the Bomb-omb, and may not hold it longer than a second. At any point t" Mario" can yell, "Bomb-omb!", and whoever has the ball is out. Continue to play until there is only one person left, and he/she wins!
Then you can move on to the water level that pops up in every world:
Blooper Toss - White water balloon Bloopers (the little enemy squids) can be tossed back and forth between a team of 2. After every successful toss the team members should back up a step. The last team with a live (non broken) blooper wins!
Cheep-Cheep Cup Balance - Ahh Cheeps-Cheeps, those crazy red and green fish that seem to fly at Mario when he is least expecting it. Kids can balance a small Dixie cup full of water on their head and walk between 2 points, being careful not to drop their "Cheep-Cheeps".
Now on to the dreaded final level, Bowser's castle:
Avoid the Ghost - Have an adult act as the ghost. Kids can move while the ghost is looking away, but must freeze when he turns around. If they are caught moving by the ghost they are out! Last player standing wins!
Bowser Balance Beam - Have the little Mario's navigate a sturdy board on two cinder blocks.
Fireball Throw - Play target practice by tossing red balls at a target shaped like a Bowser. See who can get the most hits out of a set number of throws.

You can even set up a loose tournament by making a scoreboard from a piece of poster board. Make a chart and when they beat a certain game they get a Mario Bros. sticker after their name.
