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!
