Little Rocker

I have a nephew who recently had a rockstar birthday party. His father is a die hard rock fan, even involved with a band up to now, so it was no question what my nephew’s party would be. He even got a real guitar as part of his birthday gift. There were wigs and hairpieces for the photobooth – like a music festival.

Anyway, it seems to be the trend these days, kids having rockstar-themed parties. Two parties we have attended were all rockstar parties!
