A little something I am known for...

Little did you know you were visiting a celebrity blogger. Yes, in the birthday party arena, I am somewhat of a legend. At least among my neighbors and a few close friends. Lol. But I do get a lot of hits on my birthday parties, especially the Spa-jama party I threw for my little girl last year. I aim to please again, this year, as most of our family's birthdays fall in the summertime.

This year my daughter's birthday will kick of the party season. She's asked for a Hannah Montana party. I tried to convince her that a Harry Potter party with potions and experiments would be more fun (for me) but she gets to choose and Hannah Montana is her (very-third-grade-girly-girl) choice! So. It took me a while to get the creative juices flowing (and visits to a lot of different party sites), but here is what I have come up with! Drumroll? Thank you.

The invitations are going to be made up to look like concert tickets. The decor will consist of CDs and foil stars hanging from the ceiling. The guests will be meeting at Sweet and Sassy Salon dressed up as pop/rockstars. My daughter has already decided to be Cyndi Lauper, which I am secretly so excited about (yes I love full miniskirts and leggings and big belts and bangle bracelets). They will each get their hair done in a full party up-do. They will each be handed a backstage pass and from there we will head home where the red carpet will be a laid out and as they walk in, (renderings of) cameras will be flashing and cameras will be rolling. There may even be an interview or two. Each girl will draw a fun name from a hat and "be" that name for the evening (after all, Miley Cyrus has a dual persona). A group photo will be taken and printed off for each girl, and then they will all have a chance to autograph each other's pictures. Next will come the lip sync contest, all Hannah Montana songs of course (and everyone a winner as well - prizes could be bedazzled guitar pics, not sure yet). And finally, cupcake cones (which naturally look like microphones), chips, music note shaped cookies, soda pop and so forth will be served at the "after party". Each guest will be taking home a black t-shirt with words like "Rock on" and "Pop Star" and "Fab" glued on in rhinestones (by myself), along with their group autographed photo.

Can you not wait for pictures?

Oh, I wish I had a little girl who could go to the party--sounds like such great fun. You are INCREDIBLE.
I can't wait to see the pictures.

well you put me to shame. I just buy a cake and show up at CEC and call it a day.

No, I can't wait for the pictures! What fun. You're so clever and I'm sure they'll have a blast. My third grade granddaughter is a Hannah Montana fan, too.

You rock, hon. Truly.

You must really enjoy that stuff, as I know the amount of work involved! Have a fun time!

I so cannot wait until my kids are old enough for theme parties! You are so creative! Happy Birthday to your big girl!

Can I have your autograph? You are awesome!

I love it. Beyond creative. I consider myself a bit of a birthday party connoisseur too and I am impressed. Nice Work!

Wow! That sounds amazing. The last time I threw a party of that proportion, my oldest was 5 and an only child. Now I'm so lazy, they're lucky to have a theme. Maybe eventually I will get my zing back.

Wow. Sounds like a great, great time. So creative as always!
