Yesterday I told you about the food and decorations at the Justin Bieber / Lady Gaga party so today I thought I'd finish up with the rest of the details - activities and goodie bags!
I have to admit, planning the activities for a party is my least favorite part of an event. I absolutely LOVE the design details like food, decorations and party favors, but when it comes to activities, it completely stresses me out.
So, I did some research online and came up with some ideas.
First off we had a "Gaga Glam Shop" set up with eye shadow, lip gloss, nail polish, hair ties, face painting pencils and of course dress up clothes.
Some of the girls REALLY got into this activity!
This took care of the Lady Gaga side of things. For Justin, we played a version of "pin the tail on the donkey" but instead "Plant A Kiss On Justin" Each girl had to put lipstick on and was blindfolded, then had to kiss a poster of Justin that was hanging on the wall. Whoever got closest to his lips won! This was hysterical because the girls were screaming with giddiness after each kiss.
Another JB inspired game we played was a modified version of Hot Potato but in this version we passed around a play microphone and whenever the music stopped, the person holding the mic had to finish singing part of the JB song that was playing during the game.
For the goodie bags I got solid color gift bags matching the color scheme of the party and designed Lady Gaga gift tags with each girl's name on it.
We had tattoos, candy lipsticks, lip gloss rings, funky glittery diva sunglasses, acrylic light up microphones and glow sticks.
At the end of the party, each girl got a pink Chinese takeout box and was able to load up on whatever was left on the candy table. These girls went to town! There was nothing left - not even a single jelly bean!
This is a great way to get all that candy out of your house!
My little one's birthday isn't until April so I still have plenty of time to think of that one!
What's your favorite part of party planning?
