Word to the wise - if you are going to name your soon Miles Simon Cash for Miles Davis, Paul Simon and Johnny Cash, the time is going to come, when he is going to want to ROCK!
And for us, that time has arrived.
Miles had his 5th birthday party this past weekend and it was a blast.
The theme was completely picked out by him, as were all the activities:
Like jamming on his Daddoe's guitars. Isn't his Daddoe so sweet to let those boys play on real guitars? Those boys can rock! We let them turn the amps up and play to their hearts content - it was pretty cute.
All Rock-n-Roller's need serious rock costumes as well, so we had a craft time and made some "rockin' visors" and "rollin' wrist bands."
Thanks to the clearance section at Hobby Lobby, and my paper scraps this craft cost all of $6.50 in total for 5 boys.
Miles wanted to be able to sit at the bar and drink Root Beers (his fav drink) while waiting on their personal pizza's to cook, so I dressed up our little bitty bar best I could and set out some popcorn for them to munch on while they waited...
Rockin' Noise Makers and Backstage Passes for each guest as they arrived...
Party favors included a compilation CD, Rock Show Tickets, pixie sticks and some seriously cool rock-n-roll stickers.
Homemade cupcakes with blue pixie dust "stars" where a big yummy hit.
This was one of those last minute projects where I just used what I had on hand.
I used the pixie sticks for the star coloring and for the template I just used my star punch on a heavy piece of card stock and then went to town dusting the top of each little cake.
The stars weren't all perfect (would have had to have smoother icing for that) but it was fun to try them and no one seemed to mind either way...
Miles seemed to love them and that is what matters most!
I can't believe my baby is 5. Look at that smiles. That kid can light up a room when he wants too!
The party was great fun, and now most of the guitars have been put back in Daddoe's office, but I have a feeling the rockin' has just begun....
