Ykaie's Rock Star Themed Birthday Party

It would look like Ykaie had a big party because of all the preparations and party food but it was just a small intimate party. Only 6 of my nieces, a few cousins and Aunts graced the event. Each rocker sang her favorite song. Ykaie sang her rendition of Rolling in the Deep while playing the electric guitar. She delighted the audience with her performance! You totally rock Ykaie! You really have such an awesome stage presence and showmanship! The entire band put on a fabulous show filled with good music and lots of  electrifying energy and  power. It was such a successful concert! The producer of the concert was blown away so he already planned  an International concert tour for Ykaie and her band! chos lang! hehe!

BSA Twin Towers, Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong City

We had an overnight stay at BSA Twin Towers for Ykaie's birthday celebration. It's just 45 minutes drive from our place. Yesterday was her actual birthday ( Nov. 19) but her Rock Star Party will be held on Sunday.  BSA Twin Towers Condotel is located at St. Francis Square, Ortigas Center behind SM Megamall. You just have to cross the street to reach Megamall. Sis and I purchased the voucher from Ensogo for P2,999 which is just right for our budget. The deal is for an overnight Studio Prime accommodation for 2 +buffet breakfast. A maximum of  2 children below 12 years old are free of charge but they allowed us to have 3 kids in the room for free! There were very limited choices for breakfast so don't expect too much. Kid's buffet breakfast costs P150. What drew me to purchasing the deal was the cute lagoon type swimming pool. The kiddos adore swimming! We went swimming after checking in and the next day after breakfast. We had the swimming pool all to ourselves! The pools are located on the 52nd floor.

Our room has twin beds. I managed to do a little trick so the 5 of us can sleep comfortably on this small twin beds.

Preparing for Ykaie's Rock Star Themed Birthday Party

Look who's ready to rock!

     Rock Star themed birthday party came to mind when I purchased the blue shirt Ykaie's wearing in the picture above. I showed sis the shirt and the matching shades and  suggested that Ykaie should have a Rock Star themed party for her 5th birthday. I bought it last year and  it was supposed  to be her birthday shirt for the party but it was a bit long for the tutu I made for her so I just replaced it with a different one.
      I did a little photoshoot with Ykaie over the weekend. I had already taken more or less 20 shots when she started to get cranky so I just bribed her with P100 and a bottle of coke! I know I'm such a bad Aunt but I needed some Rock Star poses for her invitations and birthday banner. Her face lit up when she heard the word coke! She got more excited getting coke than the money. lol!  I asked her to shout "yeah" while pretending to be singing, hence the shots with her mouth  wide open.

I made 2  designs for the invitations. One for the band members and one for VIPs

 Rock Star tarpaulin layout ( birthday banner layout)

Birthday color theme: blue, purple and black with a touch of fuchsia

 food picks

Cellphone charms turned into food picks.

More cellphone charm food picks. P80/dozen in Divisoria

guitar and music symbol shaped cookie cutters and cupcake picks

Guitar cupcake toppers

I made an electric guitar shaped piñata using an illustration board.

I cut out a long strip of illustration board for the sides and  assembled it using hot glue and scotch tape. I glued Papel de Japon (tissue paper)  fringe starting from the bottom all the way up until everything is covered.

Finished product

Some of the piñata fillers. No candies, just cute girly stuffs!  I will  also add P5 and P10 coins.

Finished invitations in the form of VIP backstage passes. They are double sided. Credits: electric guitar clipart from clicker.com and wings clipart from bestclipartblog

I also made Ykaie a Rock Star tutu.  (Music symbol  and star filled tutu)
