Invitations are the first glimpse of your Rock and Roll themed party, so make sure you have the most rockin’ invites you can create. You can make guitar shaped invites, and send them down to the kids’ school and down the neighborhood. Or, make round invites that look like vinyl records, and write down detail with a gold or silver ink. You can also make invites that look like a concert pass! Another easy way to invite your guests are online invitations. Sendo Invitations has a few standout Rock invites and you can even upload your favorite rock song! Take a peek at some standout invites: Let’s Rock, Boombox, Admit One and Spotlights.

You can use all the creativity you have to decorate a rock-star themed party. For starters, you can have a red carpet rolled out leading to the cake table. You can use red felt or a wrapping paper for this. You can also have a banner hanging at the front door that says “Rock Concert – Sold Out”. You can also have an area separate with music blasting so the guests can dance and enjoy themselves. Another thing that you can do is have large posters of pop-stars and rock-stars and paste them in the entire space of your birthday. You can also have a backdrop with the birthday person’s favorite band, or you can make your own with a plain white or black base, and have stars, guitars, drums, and vinyl records drawn all over.

No birthday is complete without party games! There are so many games you can do. You can have themed bingo games, and have a theme related prize for the winner. You can also have a theme related scavenger hunt! This is one of the most favorite games of all times. Another game that everyone loves is Pin the tail on the Donkey. Ask everyone in the party to participate. Also, make sure you have a piñata which is also Rock-star themed!
