Today's real party feature is "JAM"packed with adorable details...
Michele from Intrigue Design orchestrated the amazing elements of this "Jammin' with Jack" music-themed 4th birthday party she hosted for her son.

The fabulous dessert table was filled with music-themed goodies with the drum cake taking center stage.  (cleverly displayed on a toy drum used as a make-shift cake stand.)  The licorice "Guitar Stings", "Kickin' Krispie Treats,  Eighth Note brownie pops, "Musical Munchies" and Marshmallow drum sticks were the perfect treats to offer groupies and guests.  The "Jam Session" allowed Jack to showcase his mad skills on the drums too...what more could a little boy ask for!?

Thanks for sharing the magic of Jack's 4th birthday celebration with us Michele!
You did an amazing job. I don't know one little boy who wouldn't absolutely feel like a "rock star"
after a birthday celebration like this!!

Here are the party details as told by Michele...

"My son is very interested in music, among a lot of the typical things boys love. We have a drum set at home and he is constantly playing real songs on them so when I gave him three theme options for his birthday it was no surprise he chose the "music party". (Though I was secretly hoping for something a bit more unique.) We're not the "rockstar" type so it was a bit challenging coming up with something edgy & fun without it looking baby-ish or introducing the pointy guitars and such. I think the easiest part was the title of the theme "Jammin' with Jack."

The snack table is always fun for me as I love coming up with clever titles. "Kickin' Krispie Treats", "Musical Munchies" and "Jam 'n Triangles" were a few I like.  I made the eighth note brownie pops, the triangles and the krispie treats along with the cupcakes and cake. The rest of the items were purchased. The kids loved it as well as the adults and I was kind of surprised at how fast the snacks disappeared.

When the guests arrived we made some craft instruments which we used for a couple of games later in the party. There was a story time with action words along with a rhythm repeating game. Before presents time we had our little jam session. Everyone went out to the patio where we'd set up a little stage area with the drum set and pretend microphone. My son had a blast playing drums for the band leader that joined us.

The favors were guitar or drum cookies made by Renee of Bees Knees along with a jar of "JAM". I added a label to the jars that said "Jam On". (For the adults) The guests were also given freedom at the cookie board where I posted my eighth note sugar cookies. The kids also got to take home cookies, craft & toy instruments and a Microphone shaped Drinking cup that I purchased from CelebrateExpress.com"

Michele! This is awesome! I'm having a music themed birthday for my son in November too. I already had some of these ideas on my list but I definitely got a few more brand new ones! I may need to pick your brain in the next few weeks. My son is also turning 4 and his name also starts with a 'J' so I may have to steal this party theme. I don't want to do rockstar because we're doing more hip hop than rock. This turned out super cool!!

Wow that is just awesome....the attention to all details is spectacular.

What a cute idea!! I love how this could go with either gender. And we could do the wii Rock Band since we don't have real drums. Very fun! Could also be great for a variety of ages and for more than just birthdays! Love it!! -Steph
