A rock and roll birthday party

Last weekend we celebrated the 6th birthday of my son Nicolas. He and his friend Nacho wanted a party with loads of music. And they sure got it!. They very much enjoyed their birthday — singing, playing the drums, guitars and piano! All made at home with cardboard boxes and wood.

The name of the band was chosen by the two kids, and I am not sure it means something meaninful in English, but it sounded quite cool for a “spanish” band!!. The illustration of the lovely bug was made by our really good and talented friends, Mr. Wonderful.

The Hat Bugs did the sound check before the rest of the guests arrived. They had to check guitars, piano, microphones, drums… it was fun! And when the guests arrived they all wanted to go on stage and sing!!

Time to eat! For decoration of the table, I made some vinyls of the “greatest hits of the Hat Bugs”!

And they loved the Tatoos stand!!!. They all got their tatoo.

It was a really a fun party and kids really enjoyed having a stage, real microphones and music all for themselves! If you want to see more pictures of this party you can click here or here.

Hope you like it.

What a great idea Maria! I’m sure Pim would love that. He’s been telling me he wants to have either a Michael Jackson party or a Scary party or a Acrobat party, so in case it will be the Michael Jackson party I will definitely steal your ideas!! xxxxx

This is such a great idea! I love all the musical equipment you made out of cardboard and that stage is amazing!

That is a wonderful idea and doesn’t look too difficult either. Whenever I take my kids to the local play area, there is a stage and they absolutely love going on thar and pretending to sing and dance so I can see them absolutely loving this party suggestion.

I love the temporary tattoo table!
A cute gift or favor idea would be the ROCKABET picture book (ABC history of rock!)
