It's on like… a Donkey Kong-themed birthday party!

With three young children that I adore making a fuss for, party planning has become one of my favorite things. I l-o-v-e a theme and finding ways to creatively interpret it. So when my own "not so little/little guy" approached me with his request to host a Donkey Kong-themed party, I was up to the challenge!

And it did prove to be a challenge. As you can imagine, Donkey Kong ready-made items are NOT easy to purchase. My creative hat got thrown on and I went to work with a lot of DIY detail that incorporated some Donkey Kong specific stuff but a lot of imagination around jungles, primates, and colors.

I'm pretty pleased with the results but in the end all that really mattered was the super tired, super grateful grin on my son's face when I tucked him into bed after the festivities had ended. It was clearly a great day for him…mission accomplished!
