Check out this awesome Hannah Montana/High School Musical/Rock Star birthday party that was shared by one of Belly Feathers' Facebook fans Melissa of Buckets of Grace. She definitely has a flair for details, and I love all of her DIY ingenuity! Melissa's daughter Grace definitely celebrated her 6th birthday in rock-star style.
When I saw photos from the party, I was immediately transported back to playing with my Jem and the Holograms dolls. This party would have been perfect for me at Grace's age. I even had a rock star stage with instruments for my Barbies, and yes, one of them was a keytar! Can you tell I grew up in the 80's?!
So, when I saw this awesome karaoke stage that Melissa created for the party out of black table coverings and cardboard boxes, I let out a crazed fan scream!!! (Okay, not out loud but definitely in my head.)
Melissa found this cute guitar invitation from Paper Style. In the text, she asked the guests to come dressed like rock stars.
When the guests arrived, they were given treat bags full of dress-up gear like pretend headset microphones, sunglasses, pink feather boas, Hannah Montana lip glosses, and back stage passes (SCREAMS!) to further "glamorize" as Melissa put it. I love that word!
Melissa designed these super cute personalized back stage passes with her Creative Memories online scrapbooking software using a Hannah Montana package download for only $4.95! She made larger versions of the passes to hang as posters around the party space.
There was also a Rock Star Salon set up for the girls with washable color hair spray in pink, blue, and purple; nail polish; make-up; colored hair extensions; and bling rock-star tattoos from Oriental Trading Company.
As you can tell, it looks like the girls had a great time dressing the part.
Melissa's creativity wowed me again with these awesome cakes! Grace had her own gluten-free Hannah Montana cake, while the other guests enjoyed a High School Musical cake featuring Gabriella and Troy.
Melissa also served cupcakes with adorable toppers designed by Ciao Bambino on Etsy. This store also created the the favor tags for Grace's party.
The main activity was karaoke on the party stage. In addition to singing, there were inflatable guitars on hand for those that wanted to play along, too.
"We heard 'Best of Both Worlds' at least 200 times," shared Melissa.
Other activities included "Pass the Microphone" (a variation of hot potato) and a guitar pinata. You can really see Grace's rock-star makeover in this photo!
Melissa found some cardboard guitars on Oriental Trading Company that the girls could decorate with stickers and stick-on jewels, too. "They LOVED those - especially the ones too shy to sing."
Here's a photo of the birthday girl's whole family. Melissa and her husband wore security shirts. Another awesome idea, proving no detail was overlooked at this party!
Thank you so much, Melissa, for sharing your incredibly creative ideas! You can see more of Melissa's fabulously detailed homemade parties on her blog Buckets of Grace and two more at the Maddycakes Muse blog: a cowboy party for son Ethan and Grace's 5th Ballerina party.
