When my son requested a "Monkey Donkey Robot Piñata" Birthday Party, at first I went "huh?" and then I went "awesome!" It turned out to be a crazy, funky, hilarious party. We tossed tortillas, cracked cascarones, had a kiddo dance party, all among ebay-bought ceramic donkeys, monkeys, and robots. We hung about 20 piñatas from our overhang outside and used one to hit. My son had a total blast. It was wonky and wonderful! For loads more details, check out: http://cakeslikesaparty.com/2011/06/20/3rd-birthday-party-monkey-donkey-robot-pinata-theme-part-1/
My inspiration came straight from my son - it's what he wanted! I picked the colors and the design and kept them as simple as I could because the theme was so funky.
cool, accessible, funky
I ordered fabric from fabricguru.com for the tablecloths, bought ceramic monkeys and donkeys and robots from ebay, and bought all the pinatas from downtown santa ana, ca.
All the crazy ceramic tchockes
Go with what your kiddo loves and you will have a fabulous shindig!
WOW WOW WOW Just checked out your blog and I suddenly feel like throwing a MDRP party! LOL Where do I start? Not only did you have my laughing out load from your captions (eg PITA) haha but you have filled me with SO MUCH inspiration! This party is amazing, I wanted to BE THERE! :P can’t wait to see what you can do for the fourth birthday!
This was awesome! What a great mom for going with the flow and creating such an awesome party. Any idea’s for a 6 yr old’s Lemonade Mouth party? That’s next for me.
I was about to comment about there aren’t more pictures, but good thing I spotted the link to your blog. And wow, I admire your attention to details. The multiple theme alone proves your talent! You surely didn’t leave out anything. I particularly love your centerpiece with the succulents.
Just looked at the blog pictures – how creative and cool!!!!
