Best Kids Parties: Rock Star

My Party

Name: Holden (2)
Location: Brooklyn, NY

The moment Holden picked up his ukulele and stuck a harmonica in his mouth, we knew we had a tiny Bob Dylan on our hands. Naturally, the next logical step was to convert our building's lounge into a rock club for his 2nd birthday party!

Holden's favorite music teacher, John Carlin of The Kids Music Underground, was coming to perform so we created a kid-friendly stage area complete with theater curtain (rented from Rose Brand), custom music-themed posters designed and illustrated by us (including our own version of Milton Glaser's famous Dylan illustration), prop guitars and a Fender amp.

Club-goers were given "admit one, age two" wristbands upon entering the party (designed by us), and VIP family wore laminated all-access passes (also designed by us). The Dylan poster art appeared again on yet another cake crafted by the talented crew at Betty Bakery, and Holden's lil rockstar buddies left the show with branded harmonicas as favors (harmonica labels also designed by us!).

Thanks Lori & Matthew! Readers, see more of Holden's rockin' party at Two Plus Us.
