Happy Birthday Rock Star!


My little man finally turned 2! and what a big day it was.

He has always loved music, and we have always played it for him.  When he was little he would quite down for Rock ‘N Roll, reggae, classical or anything with a beat. When he started to be able to move, he would move with the music.  Then he began to dance, after that everything became a drum.  He LOVED to drum, and this year he got some drums for Christmas.

When trying to figure out a birthday theme we decided on a Rock Star theme.  In my previous post I uploaded what his invitations looked like.  They were made to look like a concert poster and came with two concert tickets.  I was very pleased with the results, and my work didn’t stop there.

I made the backstage passes for the people who came

Being as we are a family that lives off M&M candies, and it is one of Ian’s favorites.  We ordered some personalized ones from My M&M.  Which I am pretty sure we do for most every party.

I made the “Happy Birthday” and “Rock On” banners using the Sam Kit from Just So Scrappy, one of my favorite kit designers.

I was also able to make all the fun tags, using the same kit.

The gift bags and goodies I got from Oriental Trading Co and The Dollar Tree.

Some decorations, plates & napkins I found at Party City.  I also bought the pinata at Toys ‘R Us.

The FANTASTIC cake was made by my absolutely wonderful and talented aunt!  Ian was so excited for the cake, he loved it!

All in all it was a wonderful day and Ian had such a great time.
