Here are some of our favorite rock star birthday party ideas to help you party like a rock star at your next celebration! Read on for inspirations for invitations, decorations, favors, and activities to keep you rockin’ all night long!
Sending great invitations can make your guests feel special before the party even starts. You can either purchase some cards or make your own unique rock and roll themed invitations. Here are some ideas for both options:
Guitar Shaped Invitations — A great idea for your rock star invitations is to use a heavy card stock paper and cut it into the shape of a guitar. The headline on the invitation should be “Come Party Like A Rock Star!” Click here for some free guitar clipart to get you started.
Guitar Pick Invitations — Another fun idea is to add a guitar pick on a chain to the front of your party invitations. You might add a caption such as, “You’ve Been Picked…”
CD Invitations — Get your guests pumped up for the party by making a CD compilation of your favorite rock hits. This can be a great memento of a fun event.
VIP Pass Invitations — Every concert goers dream is to score a VIP pass to the show. Why not send your friends some backstage pass invitations for your event. Have them bring their pass to the party as their ticket inside.

Rock Star Birthday Party Decorations
There are many ways to go when decorating for a rock star party. You might set up a stage and have some performances or dim the lights for a concert feel. Here are some more suggestions for decorating:
Have your guests feel like they are entering a special event by tying red rope to some stands by your front entrance.
Hang a silver metallic curtain across your entryway so your rock star guests can make an entrance.
Hang compact disks (audio CDs) from the ceiling with clear filament or fishing line.
Set up a stage area with a curtain (be sure to leave a space for the audience!)
Use white or colored twinkle lights to create a party atmosphere.
Scatter lots of balloons on the floor and hang some helium balloons containing small LED balloon lights that will glow inside the balloons when the lights are dimmed.
Put pictures of your favorite rock star singers or groups on the wall or in frames on your serving areas
If you have record albums, use the album covers as decorations.
Hang stars from the ceiling or put them on the walls for some added sparkle.
Set up a fun rock star photo stand-in where guests can get their picture taken as a rocker.
Have helpers dress in black and wear security badges to create an authentic atmosphere.
