Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!

July 7, 2016

If that doesn't make you, like totally, think 80's big hair then I don't know what does! Our Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Rock Star Camp just so happened to coincide with one of our sweet friend's birthdays, so we rocked on with the fun and had an exclusive after-party!

I pity the fool who doesn’t think of Oriental Trading for all their 80’s rock star party accessories! I was like, oh my God...they have like everything I could possibly need to throw a totally gnarly to the max party!

First things first, the girls dressed up and had their hair done, complete with these totally 80's colorful hair scrunchies. They looked totally rad and oh so valley girl!

Our tables were decorated with neon painted rockstar trophies, totally awesome 80's dessert plates, tubular guitar cups turned flower vases, and a rad boom box piñata we made a little more festive to fit the theme. I also added a few coordinating printables created by my talented friend Jen T by Design. She like, totally, got my vision - I fer shure would have shared my Bonne Bell and Aqua Net with her back in the day! 

We love crafts at Sugar & Spice so we used these DIY Sunnies to create some totally awesome party props.

And what 80's girl band doesn't have totally gnarly guitars?! These DIY cardboard cutouts were perfect for the girls to design and jam out with later in the party. We spray painted them beforehand, then the girls bedazzled them for good measure.

Our dessert table was all things pop, rock and NEON - duh! We really wanted to run with the neon colors, and the candy bar also doubled as a party favor for the guests. Pop Rocks, Ring Pops, Rock Candy, popcorn, soda pop, popsicles, and neon poppin' cookies were obvious choices due to their bright colors, and the fact that their names literally scream ROCK/POP (star)! To save on time, and since they like, totally matched the theme, we purchased the pre-decorated cookies from Target.

The backdrop was a plain white twin sheet I splatter-painted, then used good ol' spray paint for the "Like Totally" so it would have a more 80's feel to it. A few of the bright lanterns were splatter painted as well, and the others received a few neon stickers to match our printables.

After creating their crafts, the girls were ready to sing and dance. I would like to say that they, like totally, rocked out to all 80's music, but alas, Taylor Swift won out and they did a whole lot of Shakin' It Off! ;)

The rockstars worked up an appetite during their jam sesh, so during their stage break they sat down to nosh on the tasty cookies, soda pop and popsicles. 

Sadly, like the 80's themselves, the party came to an end. The birthday girl said it was the "best birthday (like) ever", so I would say it was like, you know, a totally awesome success!
