The kids and adults had a blast at a doughnut eating contest. Supplies to create your own:  glazed donuts, twine, and a small piece of PVC piping (or a curtain rod) to hang donuts off of.

Stuck On You created these adorable personalized camping mugs using mugs found at Daiso ( The Japanese version of a dollar store). Each kid got to go home with their own mug, flashlight and S'mores pack. You can get the favor tag for your own party by clicking here, or the photo above.

Our Favorite Gender Neutral Shower Ideas

PartiesMKKM DesignsComment

Lately it seems like most of the people that I know having babies, are keeping babies gender a surprise. I don't know how they can do it. I couldn't find out soon enough with my boys. In honor of all you Mom-to-be's that are keeping your little secret, I'm sharing my favorite Gender Neutral party ideas from the shop. My personal favorite is our "Baby Is Brewing" theme, which I used for a friends shower this past summer.

Party Like A Pineapple

Party Like A Pineapple with party ideas and a free printable favor sign from the girls of MKKM Designs

Today we're sharing a party from this past summer, that we just LOVED creating. Nolan's Pineapple Beach Bash. This event was so bright and fun. The food was all Pineapple and Ocean themed, as the event was held at the Beach. The kids went home with Pineapple Party Cups and fun sunglasses.

It was a HOT day. April in Okinawa is the beginning of brutal summer. The "Beat The Heat" drink station was a must! I just love this drink holder that the birthday boy's mama had stashed away.

How cute are these customer review photos! Those pineapple sunglasses are awesome! Thanks to Darrah and Andrea for sharing how they styled this party theme.

The birthday boy's mama also custom created the favor bags. She decorated plain yellow goody bag to look like pineapples. They were perfect! #allthehearteyes. You can get our printable favor sign FOR FREE (!!!) here, or by clicking the picture above. The download includes a 4x6" and 5x7" version. If you need a custom sign, you can always message us on Etsy and we can create a custom listing for you.

Food Ideas!

  • Pineapple Upside Down Cake
  • Seaweed Dip (We used Spinach)
  • Pineapple Salsa
  • Pool Water
  • Poolside Punch
  • Take A Dip station with various chips and dips
  • Lifesaver "Pool Floaties"
  • Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs or Sliders. This recipe from Cooking Classy is delicious!
  • Glazed Donuts with construction paper leaves to look like a Pineapple.

If you still haven't done anything, don't panic, just print out a free printable, throw in a few photos, or just write a note and mail it out. Your mom will thank you.
