For the party favors, I set up a candy buffet. I absolutely love candy buffets. They are relatively inexpensive and versatile. I already had the jars, and I filled each with different candys. I needed a filler for the jars, since I didn't have enough candy to fill them up. They looked a bit sparse, so I added mini marshmallows and the rest of the big marshmallows. The marshmallows represented the "clouds" in one of the Mario game levels. One jar had green M&Ms to match the color of Luigi's outfit. Another jar had plastic gold coins as a filler, and Atomic Fireballs cinnamon candies for the fireballs that Mario throws and gold coins that he gathers. Finally, in another jar I had candy Wii remotes. After scouring Amazon, I found these awesome candy molds for Wii remotes. I used white and black candy melts for the treats.
I am SUPER excited about how everything turned out and the kids loved it, too! You know you have done well when children are impressed!
