Rock Star Party


This past weekend our family celebrated my daughter's 7th Birthday.  Hard to believe my little girl is 7 already! For her party she wanted to go with a rock star theme. She's really into karaoke these days and likes to act like a rock star... DIVA and all! Can hardly wait for those teenage years! If you've been following my blog you'll know she already had an early birthday party about a month ago with all her little girlfriends from school. Click HERE for her Paint themed Party!

Here is our little DIVA!



Other than the ceiling decor, I didn't do too much to decorate for the party. I had seen this done somewhere on Pinterest and thought about doing something similar for her party. Such a simple and inexpensive decoration too.

Only things I did purchase from Party City that were Rock Star themed were the balloons, 1 table cloth, hanging coils, and loot bags.

Here's what I used to make the ceiling decoration: 
  • 2 black plastic tablecloths 
  • 1 blue plastic tablecloth
  • 1 pink plastic tablecloth
  • 12 pink tissue paper sheets for the tissue pom pom. Click HERE for directions.
(All supplies listed above were bought at a Dollar Store (for less than $5) why spend more when it goes right into the garbage when your done!)
    All I did was cut each table cloth in half lengthwise. Then I chose my center point on the ceiling. I then took one end of the plastic pieces of table cloth gathered it together and with an thumb tack pierced it into the ceiling. Then I stretched out the same piece and secured each ends of that piece with another tack. (For extra strength and to prevent it from ripping, I rolled the end of the cloth first and then pierce through two layers. This also hid the tack from view). Repeat the process with as many pieces as you like!

    Don't worry too much about the holes left behind on the ceiling, they are barely noticeable. Especially if you have a textured ceiling like I do.



    I also created this table back drop by covering 2 foam board pieces with pink wrapping paper and then used another black table to create the curtains of a stage. The stars were created with my Silhouette Cameo.


    Finally, here is the cake I made for my little Rock Star! The bottom layer was a chocolate flavored 10 inch cake and the top a vanilla flavored 6 inch cake. All covered with vanilla butter cream and finished with fondant.  I used rice crispy treats to create the guitar shape and covered it with fondant, and the guitar strings.... SPAGHETTI!  Yup, just painted them silver. I was mostly excited about the bottom quilted layer. For my first try doing this technique it turned out pretty awesome! 



    Hope you like my take on the Rock Star themed Party! I know my little girl did :)
    Thanks so much for stopping by.

    Happy Party Planning :)
