Reader Tricia C. asked on the Dollar Store Crafts Facebook Page: “I need more crafty dollar store ideas!! I’m throwing a “Rock Star” themed party for my son’s first birthday and I was trying to think of some fun favors/decorations for the party! The colors will be black/red/silver. I’m going straight to the Dollar Tree on my lunch hour to get some ideas. Thanks!”
Here are some ideas:
- Microphone cupcakes – made with ice cream cones and licorice whips – from Parenting
- Baby Rock Star (Shower, but will work for a birthday party too) from Hostess With The Mostess
- Make a Paper Guitar from Family Fun
- Pop Star Guiltar Cake from Family Fun
So readers, help us brainstorm!
There are a number of great decorations ideas here, including fun vinyl record snack bowls!

We did a Girls Rock! party for my daughter and came up with some cute stuff. Here is the link: http://www.uncommondesignsonline.com/2011/09/uncommon-events-girls-rock.html
I don’t have a picture of the favors, but we did individually wrapped rock candy that had a You Rock! tag on it.
Hope that helps!

So excited for you – there’s lots of things you can do.
DECORATIONS – Carefully open old video cassettes and use the tape inside for shiny streamers;
ACTIVITY – Cut and decorate an old box lid to make a pretend photo frame and then have a photo-booth photo-session;
MAKE’N’TAKE – Have the kids make pet rocks for a take home craft;
CAKE – at my daughter’s recent mermaid party we turned her photo into edible cake icing; it was a great way to make her an instant star!
If you have time, I’d be happy to help you design a Rock Star set of printpapers (invites, bunting, coasters etc); my contact details are on my blog.
Hope this helps.
