Here it is! The Top 6 things to organize your Teen first Rock birthday party!
1. Let’s talk numbers
First things first. In order to throw a perfect birthday party for teenagers, you’ll need to invite the right number of guests. If you invite too many, you’ll be stressed. If you invite too little, the party will look sad. A general rule of thumb is: invite as many guests as the age of the birthday girl/boy + 2 more. This way you’ll have plenty of guests and are able to keep things in check.
2. Jazz up those birthday invites
Do you want to amp up your party? Then you’ve to set the right tone by bedazzling your invites! As the theme is rock ‘n roll, you'll be able to get away with anything. Add glitter, splashes of colour and call ‘m “Backstage passes”. Feel free to get the birthday girl/boy involved. Making the invites together should be a fun family activity. Don’t worry if the invites look wild - they are supposed to.
3. Rock the crowd
In the land of Rock ‘n Roll, it is all about entertainment. So, it’s important to drop down some cool activities. The easiest fix would be to source out your entertainment by hiring a teen-friendly band. But if you’re working on a budget, there are some great alternatives.
If you have enough chairs, you could easily entertain the youngsters by playing games like musical chairs. Tell the young ones to grab a chair and turn the music up! You could also hire a karaoke machine, decorate music shaped cookies or set up a tattoo station. Just get some help from relatives and allow teens to get temporary tattoo stickers. How rock ‘n roll is that?!
4. The answer to anything: Balloons
Teenagers spend most of the party playing with balloons and who can blame them? By getting black, silver or golden helium balloons, you’ll set that rock ‘n roll theme*. Plus, if all hell breaks loose, balloons are super versatile. If your guests are bored: play the pop-the-balloon game. If you lose your party favours: give them a balloon. Balloons are god’s gift to mankind. Use them wisely.
*Pro-tip: Add inflatable guitar balloons to enhance that rock ‘n roll vibe.
5. The flyest goodie bags items
Sunglasses are a simple yet a great give-away. As being a Rockstar is all about lookin’ fly, sunglasses are the perfect parting gift. Plus, you can get them cheap at any dollar store. Another fun giveaway could be a fake Oscar for your guests’ incredible karaoke performance or a fake tattoo sleeve. Just make sure you keep your goodie bag simple. Avoid DIYs no matter how ‘cute’ they look.

But thankfully your birthday theme is rock ‘n roll. It’s the easiest and greatest theme you could ever choose for any rebellious teen.
Rock ‘n roll should be fun, messy and loud. It's all about letting loose. And that’s the great part! This theme doesn’t require perfection.
