One of the coolest birthday parties you can plan is a Party Like A Rock Star party! It’s great for kids of all ages (and adults too). Here you’ll find ideas for invitations, decor, food, activities and swag bags. Are you ready to party?!
Party Like A Rock Star – Invitations
If you are looking to create your own invitations, consider creating a backstage pass invitation and sending it along with a neck lanyard for the children to wear their passes at the party. These are really easy to make using this free template (2-sided invite), a single hole punch and a laminating machine.
Your guests could be invited to come dressed in their favorite rock star outfit and you could award a prize for best dressed.
These unique squiggle shape invitations (noted first below) allow for 11 lines of personalization. A matching return address label is a nice added touch. 1. Skullitude™ – Boy Skull – Squiggle Shaped Birthday Party Invitations

Party Like A Rock Star – Decorations
At your local dollar store you’re likely to find small disco balls that you can hang around the party room. You could also hang up posters of your child’s favorite rock star or create a banner using streamers and old CD’s.
A red carpet leading up to the entrance to your party is a fun idea. You could take pictures of the “red carpet arrivals” and include these in the thank you cards after the party. If you have access to a fun rock star life size cutout, this would be an excellent addition to your red carpet.
