American Idol Party
American Idol birthday party ideas for kids,
tweens and teens.
Cards with musical notes, a sign of Hollywood or a microphone
would be great invitations choices.
DecorationsDecorate the American Idol party in Blue and Silver.
Make a Hollywood sign for the inside party table and/or for outside along the walkway to the party.
Print out large letters (one per piece of paper) that spell out Hollywood and glue them onto stakes. Place at the entrance of the party. You can also make a large Hollywood sign and have the kids stand in front of it for a great photo opportunity.
Place silver stars in the trees outside and on the walkway to the party.
Hang stars from the ceiling of the party venue with curling ribbon.
Hang strings of white or blue lights on the ceiling or around the party decorations.
Clear one side of the venue or party room to make space for a stage. Hang a white, blue or silver sheet or curtain behind the stage.
Add a disco light, spotlights and/or a microphone stand for the stage.
Set up a table near the stage with 3 chairs for the judges.
A fun idea is to have 3 adults dress up like the judges on American Idol. Or you can get life size cardboard cutouts (check Ebay) of the judges and have them sitting behind the table against a wall.
Cut out large musical notes from black poster board and hand around the party area.
