Victorious Party Ideas

Tori Vega unexpectedly finds herself navigating life at the elite Hollywood Arts High School. From her first day at the school, Tori feels out of place among all the amazing, crazy talented students!  With the help of her sister, her fantastic new friends and all of their daily wacky screwball situations - Tori realizes that she was born to perform! This hugely popular show is sure to be a hit theme at your child's next Birthday Bash!
 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!
Party Games: Play "Pass the Mic" - pass a microphone around in a circle with the guests seated. Play music from the show mixed in with some popular top 40. When the music stops, the child with the Mic in hand must sing the next line. If they can do it, they stay for another round, if not, they are eliminated. The game ends when there is only 1 girl (or boy!) standing.  If you have a creative bunch, divide the guest into 2 random teams and have them make a 30 second music video. Give each team a Cd player, a few Cd's and 20 minutes to create. It can be anything - a dance or even a story set to music. Then record their performances and playback their "music videos." Hilarious! What a keepsake that will be! That would be fantastic party favor that they could look back on and cherish forever.
 Menu: Concert Food - Chicken Fingers and Fries served out of large plastic stadium cups. Hot dogs served in tin foil. Popcorn ad Nachos served in individual bags(brown lunch bags cut down) and plenty of sodas. Give all the guests a plastic champagne glass of 7-up or sparkling water. Have them all sing "Happy Birthday" and then cheer "Here's to ___" and then the tradition of clinking glasses. Then pig out on your child's favourite dessert! For an easy-to-do fun cake decoration, I suggest you download a Victorious related picture, photo or clip art from the Internet or my fave - google images.  Print it out on regular paper. Laminate it. Lay it on the cake, pressing it lightly into the frosting. Decorate around the pic with some blue or purple icing. Remember to leave enough space for the "Happy Birthday" writing and the silver, sparkly candles! Last but certainly not least, don't forget the  party loot bag! You can fill it up with Victorious licensed party favors, candy, gum,chocolate, inflatable instruments, nail polish, lip gloss, costume jewelery, friendship bracelets and of course a copy of their music videos!
