Glee Birthday Party Theme
Do you have a Gleek that is wanting to have a Glee Birthday Party? Well lucky for you I have created this post where I will share lots of Ideas, Inspiration and Glee Party Supplies to help you bring your Glee Party to life.
Funny thing is that I just started tuning into Glee this season. This show all about New Directions (The Glee Club) has really taken off and I felt like I was missing out. So I set it up on my DVR and started to watch it. It took me a bit to really get into it, but now I think I am hooked. Does that make me a Gleek? Hmmm not sure as of yet, but maybe I am. I really liked the Brittney Spears Episode – I think they did a great job with that one. I do think I need to go back and watch some from last season as well and when I have time I will do that – I think I missed some really good ones.
But being there are so many Gleeks out there who have been hooked from the start I knew there was a need to put together all of these ideas for parents whose Gleeks (Kids) are asking for this as a Party Theme and do not know where to begin. So with a little creativity and inspiration I think I can help you pull it off. So here we go…………..
Lets take it from the top !!! To start off I found these great Glee Party Invitations on Ebay that are completely customizable with all your party information. Even better they are Ticket Style Invitations and there are many designs you can choose from as well. Guess what? you can even print them from home so that saves time if you are a last minute party planner.
For your Glee Party Supplies such as your paper goods there is no official Glee items available at this time. That is ok though there are many ways you can go about this. One way is to bring in the colors Red and Yellow to play off the Glee Logo or really any bright colors would work.
Glee Party Supplies have now been released !!!
Then being Glee is all about music you can mix in Music Notes in your decor and there is plenty out there. You can find Musical Note Balloons, Instrument Shaped Balloons etc… You can even hang big Music Notes around the party area as well – you can either purchase them or create your own using Black Poster Board and cut them out and hang to save money.
I also found these cool Music Note Party Lights which I thought were a lot of fun too.
You can also hang up some of the many Glee Posters available which are pretty inexpensive as part of the party decorations. These are a double bonus in the fact that when the party is over your little Gleek can take them down and hang them in their room.
Also put up some School Banners from your child’s own school. Lay out Books on the tables, Backpacks, Paper, Pens and Pencils. Try to use a lot of the items you may already have in your home to set the School Scene.
Now when it comes to the food menu you can have a lot of fun with this too. Maybe have a bunch of Bagged Lunches for their meals since Glee is based in school. maybe all your Desserts can be set up on a table that says Bake Sale etc…
More Food Ideas:
- Purple or Blue Slushie – Use Kool Aid mixed with Crushed Ice
- PB&J Sandwiches
- Cheerios in a Bowl
Now let have some fun and talk about Glee Party Games and Activities
Of course a Glee Party would not be a party if you did not have singing and of course Karaoke is the way to go. You can either rent a machine or use one you may have on hand. Also a lot of cable companies have Karaoke as part of their online line up. There are tons of Glee Music CDs and Karaoke available that would be perfect. Or any music the kids can sing and dance to would be great.
But to kick it up a notch you should add in a variety of Inflatable Instruments and Inflatable Microphones.The kids love these and they really set the tone for the party so get ready to laugh as you watch them in action. Have enough so when the party is over they can each grab one to take home as party of their party favor.
Depending on the size of the party you can have the kids break up into small groups and come up with a sing and dance to perform for each other.
BUT wait if you have a Wii in your home – there is a new Glee Game out called Karaoke Revolution Glee. The kids can Perform to Popular Songs and up to 35 of the favorite songs from Season 1. They can also play alongside their favorite Glee Club character. Perform with characters from the show, including Rachel Berry, Finn Hudson, Will Schuester, and the rest of the cast. They can also ompete in Multiplayer Singing Games – Play with a friend in duet or co-op mode to perfect their vocal harmonies.
I created this FREE Printable Glee Trivia Game you can print out and see just how Gleeky all the party guests really are.See who can answer all the trivia questions the quickest and can get the most correct.There is also an Answer Key with all the answers – so no need to worry if you are not a Gleek yourself.
For a fun craft idea to show some School Spirit you can have the party guests Design their own Megaphones, Pennants or Banners. They can then take them home as part of their party favors. Save yourself the mess and have Markers, Stickers, Stick on Rhinestones, Pom Poms etc… Avoid paints at all costs and save yourself a headache and a mess.
Moving on to your Glee Birthday Cake or even better Glee Cupcakes
Instead of Cake for the party make some cupcakes. One fun idea is these Microphone Cupcakes. I had made these myself and they are extremely easy to do and I have a step by step tutorial to show you how you can make theme HERE.
I think these are a great choice for a Glee Party and the kids love them.
Or you can use these FREE Printable Glee Cupcake Toppers I created.All you do is print them out on a Heavy Cardstock Paper, Cut them out and Tape on a Toothpick or Wood Skewer to the back and simply place into your frosted Cupcakes.
You can frost your cupcakes any way you want and these really tie in the theme and they are FREE – who does not love FREE?
Have some extra fun and add on some Music Note Sprinkles to the top of them – Yum Yum Yum.
Time to talk Glee Party Favors – What to send the guests home with?
For one Keep it Simple, especially if they will be going home with a craft and an inflatable instrument.You can keep to the school theme and send them home with some items they can use for school such as Notebooks, Pens, Pencils etc… Maybe even a Glee Poster.
Or maybe you can bake up some cookies in the shape of Music Notes and send them home with a Drink to go along with it – kinda like an afternoon snack.I think edible party favors are the best.
I also like the Music Note Necklace you see pictured to your left – you can add that in with any of the above for an added touch and they are very inexpensive. Maybe mix up all of my suggestions and don’t forget to Brown Bag it – lol.
