Party like a ROCK STAR!
ROCKBAND themed engagement party!
Ian and I threw a surprise ROCKBAND themed engagement party for Melissa~Jean and Greg in January. The theme came to fruition by the "lie" we had to tell to get them to the "concert hall". They thought they were just coming to play Rockband with us, unaware that the whole gang would be there!
The invites were plastered with Rock and Roll images, the party information was on a TICKET, and two tickets inside were stamped to say FREE DRINK. Favors were made up of clear Chinese take out style boxes filled with PopRocks, M&M's, packs of gum, mini chocolates, temporary tattoos, multi~colored hair extensions for the ladies, rock and roll rubber duckies, and rock and roll bracelets. Guests also each received 'ALL ACCESS PASSES' decorated like the invites (cassette label says "Engagement Tour, Buffalo 2009) with a matching lanyard and mini sharpies for 'autographs'! Signs on our door said "stage door; all access pass required beyond this point".
Guests had a blast as we partied like ROCKSTARS! Even my niece, the only 'under~ager' wanted in on the fun so she had some ginger ale in the shot tubes... SLAINTE! Imagine how much fun this theme could be for tween~teen birthday parties! The party planner in me had several more ideas but we had to draw the line somewhere ;)
