Gone Bananas!

Down Emery Lane By Down Emery Lane  in Birthday


Party Recap

To fully understand this theme I encourage you to watch the first 1.31 minutes of the Minions movie…. Then a little light bulb goes off and you understand how I managed to pull together my son’s two favorite things… Minions and Bananas!

This Minion inspired GONE BANANAS party was so much fun! The green and yellow color combination was a real treat to the eye. We used a mix of real leaves and fake leaves to make the green backdrop for the dessert table. The cake by Singer Sisters Sweets was amazing! The details on the tiny minions were amazing and the leaves all over the cake were stunning. Rebecca at Singer Sisters Sweets never disappoints and she knocked this one out of the park. The dessert bar also had a “Banana Bar” where guests could dip their bananas in chocolate and have their choice of various toppings.

We kept the little ones entertained with the giant blow up bananas along with custom themed games to match the party. There was a banana hoop toss, while wearing Minion goggles of course, dino bowling, a Minion sticker hunt and digging for dinos.

I also loved the “trashin’ the camp” kid set up. This featured crates and miscellaneous items to make it feel like you stumbled upon someone’s camp site deep in the jungle. It housed the favor bags, custom cups by Down Emery Lane, the drinks, grass skirts, snacks and blankets for a picnic lunch. We served kabobs and hummus to keep the jungle feeling going throughout the party. The kids loved the fruit kabobs and dino chicken best!

All in all, those kids loved the party and everyone had GONE BANANAS by the time it was over!
