Since Trish and I didn’t really start working on it until Friday afternoon (the party was Saturday morning), this party falls in the uber-low maintenance category (on the sliding scale of usually-I-underestimate-the-work-involved-by-a lot).

ROCK STAR PARTY FOOD

Time to party like a rock star! This sweet rock star birthday party includes all sorts of party ideas- like the abundance of disco balls!
I love brunch parties- brunch menus are easy to put together, yummy, and inexpensive. Win, win, win!

Time to party like a rock star! This sweet rock star birthday party includes all sorts of party ideas- like this super simple treat table!Besides our brunch spread (which I didn’t get a single picture of- haha!), we put together a whole table of breakfast-y (and also not-so-brunchy) treats- powdered mini donuts, and milk shot glasses with mini old fashioned donuts, vanilla cake with a disco ball topper, coconut cupcakes, white chocolate M&Ms, and pink cotton candy in cones and in jars.

ROCK STAR PARTY DÉCOR

Need to add a bit of rock star to a room (or a party)??? This disco ball filled monogram is the answer!In a word, disco balls. The big hanging disco ball was just the beginning- there were medium and small disco balls everywhere- in monograms, as a cake topper, around drinks, in cups, hanging as garlands.

This sweet rock star birthday party includes all sorts of party ideas- like this cute swag booth made from a $15 IKEA cardboard market!The only other décor we used were printable posters, banners, garlands, buntings , paper cones, favor boxes and labels- both low maintenance and fabulous.

SWAG TABLE (aka- rock star party favors)

I am pretty sure this cardboard market by IKEA is the best $15 I’ve spent in a long time (in fact, I may or may not have spent a decent amount of time trying [unsuccessfully] to figure out how to bring it back to Saipan with me- haha!).

This sweet rock star birthday party includes all sorts of party ideas- like these cute rock star party favors!After covering the whole stand with white paper, this little market transformed into a perfectly fabulous swag station. Stocked with glow sticks, mini ornaments, favor boxes filled with mini disco balls, treat bags filled with rock star-ish loot, this swag station was a big attraction for the gaggle of two year old party guests.

This sweet rock star birthday party includes all sorts of party ideas- like this cute 'paparazzi' photo booth!The paparazzi photo booth was a ton of fun during the party, but the real gem is the pictures that came from this little activity. Josie plus my brother in a mullet wig plus my grandpa? Priceless. My dad holding the pink blow up guitar in one hand and Josie on his hip? Instant classic.

The aforementioned balloons and swag table also pretty much both count as activities because of the amount of enthusiasm each one generated.

AUTOGRAPHS

Time to party like a rock star! This sweet rock star birthday party includes all sorts of party ideas- like this cute 'autograph station.'After gathering Josie and her little friends on the porch for a group picture, Trish asked everyone to leave their ‘autograph’ on a frame mat. She’s going to use the framed/autographed picture in Josie’s big girl room (cute idea, right?).

Did I mention how lucky I feel that I got to be in town to party like a rock star with Miss Josie?

the yummiest churro bar

churro_bar_party_station

So once upon a time, back a few months ago, we had a Churro Bar as part of Piper’s Sparkle Party. But then I never shared it on here. Churros and a whole buffet of dipping sauces need to be shared, y’all, even a few months late. And this is perfect for those of you […]

a glitter party for our sparkle girl

sparkle party

My kids start planning their birthday parties months in advance (ok, a year in advance). Probably because their mom totally encourages this practice, just a theory. Anyhow, shortly after Piper’s Madeline birthday party, she declared ‘sprinkles’ to be her next theme and would not be dissuaded by my reminders of how much she loves trying […]

This ‘sprinkle’ was thrown in honor of one of my dearest friends in Denver (miss you Jenny!), and was so much fun to put together. Menu Since the shower was on a Sunday afternoon, we served treats and […]

I tend to overdo it when it comes to party favors. I am trying to get better, but failing miserably. Burke’s Lego party favors were no exception. The good news is that my favor over board-ness provides a whole list of Lego birthday party favor ideas. For example- -Lego chocolates- In yellow boxes with Lego […]

Lego birthday party treat table

We left Denver a mere two weeks after Burke’s sixth birthday… which means, of course, that his birthday party was quite the affair (gotta go out with a bang, right?). That kid lo-oves Legos. Like, I am pretty sure this is not the last Lego birthday party I will plan for him, that’s how much […]

Lego filled balloons

I am finally putting together the post about Burke’s Lego Birthday Party… and thought I’d share one of his favorite parts as a preview. After filling clear balloons with confetti… and more confetti… the Lego party required a new twist! And little mini Legos are the perfect sub for confetti. I seriously cannot wait to show […]
