Ok, so my daughter has requested a rock star theme for her 5th birthday. She doesn't like Hannah Montana or any of those "kid rockers" so i wil be making most of the things (ofcourse!). I have lots of ideas, and I just know that all of you will too, so any help will be GREATLY appreciated!!
-Banner: Happy Birthday, Ava, Punk Rock Girl (one of her favorite songs, by dead milkmen) or something to that effect
-Backstage passes for the kids, press badges for the parents
-a stage set up for the kids to perform
-Guitar shaped bubble necklaces
-rock star glitter tattoos
-neon hair extensions (for the girls)
-mettalic sunglasses shaped in stars, hearts, etc
-fake "grillz": the fake teeth things with gold teeth and "diamonds" in them (for the boys, since the girls get hair extensions)
-microphones to perform on stage (making these with paper towel tubes, styrofoam balls, electrical tape, and rhinestones, feathers, etc to dress 'em up)
What we're gonna do!
-i usually set out a craft for the kids to start doing when they arrive and wait for others to arrive... was thinking guitar poster board cutouts to decorate with markers, paint, glitter, beads, etc...or pringle cans into maracas to decorate...
-and while they are arriving and crafting, the kids will start getting all "rock starred": we'll use the things in the goody bags and whatever else i find to put out...
-then we eat... HELP! what should we eat?? i like to stick with the theme and i got nothing!
-next: talent show, groups, solo, whatever, and ofcourse this will be taped!!
-cake and presents and ofcourse time to watch our talent show.... our cake will be a purple and hot pink guitar, and cupcakes will be microphones (cupcake in wafer cone, i saw someone posted that for someone else, HOW CUTE)
Where I REALLY need help...
-Invitations- Should I send a "concert ticket" or maybe a "concert poster" with the info?? maybe i could get a pic of my daughter on the concert poster with her guitar or in her best rock star pose.....
I've got lots of time, her birthday isn't until September, but I like to do everything over the summer since I don't work in July or August. Last year, we had a wild west party and that will be hard to top, we had a shooting gallery and a pony and everything!!! So what do you think? Any ideas??? Kids range from 1-10, and are boys and girls. I promise to post pics (if I can figure out how)....
THANKS for reading my first post ever (my really long, rambling first post ever!!)!!!
