Invitations: You can purchase ready made invites at a reasonable cost from sites like mine or you can choose to make your own. If you choose the store bought invites you can personalize them by writing the shows theme on the envelope "Make it Shine" and filling the invite with gold star confetti. Choose a shape - don't be boring and use a rectangle if you decide to make your own! Make a template of a Microphone or a Guitar shape. Write "Rock the Stage at ___'s House Party" followed by all the details on the flip side. Glitter pens are mandatory for these invites! Another super cool idea is to purchase a pack of blank Cd's. They come in packs of 12 for about $10. With your guidance, have your child design their own cover using rock and roll and music themed clip art, pictures of stars and phrases like "VIP Backstage Pass" and "One Night Only." Print as many as you need with the party details on the backside and replace the generic insert with your personalized cover. Burn their 3 Favourite songs from the show onto the blank discs - no worries, its totally legal as it is for personal use and not resale.
Decorations: For decorations hang up posters of the Victorious cast and magazine covers about the show. Later, you can use those as a background for photo shoots. Choose glittery blue, purple and silver colors for your decoration. Hang up star-shaped balloons, Victorious Mylar balloons as well as a ton of streamers. Choose Victorious tablecovers, napkins, cups and paper plates. Hang sparkly musical notes and shiny silver stars from the ceiling that you easily make yourself with some construction paper, glitter and fishing line! Request that your guests come dressed as their favourite cast member or musical celebrity but still provide a "dressing table" filled with everything needed to glam up - glitter, tattoos, hair colour, makeup, hairspray and stick on jewels. Create a stage area with plenty of blowup guitars and microphones available where your guests can sing, karaoke or play "Air Guitar." You know the boys will be doing this! To make a stage simply hang a few ropes in a corner of a room from one side to the other and hang sheets. Voila - A Stage! Decorate your stage area with blinking Christmas lights - as many as you can find!
