Having recently discovered Ponyo, I am enamored with this party Kirsten threw for her son. She shares: My son is a huge fan of films by Miyazaki (My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service, Ponyo...) and requested a 'Miyazaki Party' for this 6th birthday.

I had a ton of fun making all the decorations and everything for it. I carved stamps for the invites, painted cardboard characters, made a birthday shirt, leaf party hats, cake, Totoro/acorn buntings and ... basically went nuts. Very DIY, which is why I love to throw parties. The kids got to be creative, too, and made Shrinky-Dink Totoro necklaces and a Ponyo-themed mural for some of the activities. We even had a special guest, Kiki! The guests and birthday boy all had a ball - I'm happy with how it went!

Thanks Kirsten! Find more photos and ideas for this fantastic party at Kirsten Can (and did!).
