This sweet rock star birthday party includes all sorts of party decor and menu ideas!My niece Josie (aka- the cutest 2 year old EVER) loves music and is constantly singing. It is darling, and also just begs for a fabulously musical, disco ball studded rock star party, don’t you agree?

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

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)

Time to party like a rock star! This sweet rock star birthday party includes all sorts of party ideas- like this cute swag booth made from a $15 IKEA cardboard market!
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.

Time to party like a rock star! This sweet rock star birthday party includes all sorts of party ideas- like these 'VIP back stage passes.'Back stage passes strung on the side proved to be a huge hit as well.

ROCK STAR PARTY ACTIVITIES

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?

I know that you’re well acquainted with the ever fabulous Party Hop by now (remember this Modern Fiesta? And this Christmas Fete? And this Star Gazing Soiree?). Well, this latest installment is my favorite yet. Perhaps because the theme is just so great- Season to Sparkle? Yes please. But also because the projects, and Sara’s […]

a rainbow of party candy

rainbow of party candy

As part of my little brother’s 30th birthday party, we put together a little rainbow of party candy (along with the Nacho Bar). It was so very easy, just candy cups filled with all different colors of candy, arranged in rows. But it’s so pretty- such impact for so little work equals something I must […]

farmer’s market birthday party

market party

Our Littlest Miss, Evie Kate, is turning two this month. Of course, a Happy Second Birthday Party was an order. Evie’s very favorite thing is our local grocery store (in the middleeast), “Lulu’s.” And since birthday parties are the perfect chance to celebrate the affections of the teeniest guest of honor, ‘market party’ became our […]

bicycle birthday party (in aqua, red and pink)

bicycle themed birthday party

Both Burke and Piper Jane adore our friend from church, Miss Hazel (they tell me a hundred times a day, “Baby Hazel so cu-ute!”). And I love Hazel’s mama, Liz (of retro garden baby shower fame- she was the mama-to-be). So helping Liz put together Hazel’s bicycle birthday party was a super fun joint venture! […]

sprinkled with love birthday party

sprinkled with love party by kojodesigns

We laughed when Piper Jane asked for a “Sprinkle” themed birthday party. Her sweet tooth is renowned in these parts (second only to her mama’s), so a sprinkle party is perfectly suited for the Little Miss Priss’ second birthday celebration. Decked out in some sprinkle accessories- a sprinkle barrette and sprinkle corsage- the birthday girl […]

hyatti- let the celebrations begin!

the wonderful world of whoopie pies

When we were in the middleeast in June, Jordan and I discovered this fantastic whoopie pie recipe. The filling is magical, especially if you are a frosting loving gal like me. Fast forward a couple months to me planning a ‘Welcome Cutie Pie’ baby shower for some of our good friends (and by baby shower, […]
