On Saturday, October 8th we hosted a birthday bash for our daughters with a theme they chose.
When I first posed the party question to both girls, I had suggested that if they wanted, this could be the year they started having separate birthday parties. Their birthdays are three days apart in September, so we’ve had combined birthdays since they were young. They both declined, and wanted to celebrate together.
Then they asked if they could invite their hip hop teacher, Mr. Q.
From there I thought, why not a hip hop party where Mr. Q taught the little party people how to hip hop dance? They were THRILLED!
I thought I’d keep it simple this year. The dance studio hosted parties. So I didn’t have to worry about clean-up or set-up. YES!
Holding it from 1-3pm for Mr. Q’s schedule – worked for us. I just provided cupcake push pops and candy. Why candy? It’s a sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeet hip hop party. Also, it’s October – candy just sort of goes hand-in-hand with this month. We had water and a veggie tray.
The goodie bags were a mix of erasers, pencils, sharpeners, tatoos, blow outs, etc. The best part were the toothbrushes and floss my moves like Jagger friend and dentist, Uzra provided for the kids. Parents can’t be mad since we provided a way to clean up all that sugar.
Each kid received a lanyard, with a photo of my girls and a plastic sleeve for it. They had their pictures taken with a star and then began their intensive training.
The kids were magnificent. This type of party works for both girls and boys. We had a few boys in the mix. I was impressed with how well Mr. Q handled the group, he’s a phenomenal teacher to begin with, but we wins over everyone with his charisma and energy. The kids. They picked it up and loved it. Such little groovers.
We love hip hop at our house. The music, the style, the attitude. If you’re looking for an uncommon, fun-tastic party, hip hop is the shiznit!
Holla! Enjoy the videos from the party.
