Decorations

Pick all or some of our American Idol birthday party ideas for decoration!

Bright blue and silver has to be the colour scheme for this American Idol birthday party. Hang plenty of silver stars from the ceiling using fishing line. Hang up lots of blue and silver balloons and streamers.

Create a stage by making a backdrop on the wall with a white sheet or hang up white curtains. Paint the sheet or the curtains with the American Idol logo or a star, and hang them up around the stage. Make a Judges Table- Put a white sheet on top of the table and put lots of silver stars on the table. The table should be in front of the stage.

Create a red carpet entrance, make your own with a long piece of red butcher paper, leading up to the door. The kids will get really excited to walk on the red carpet!

Use a light blue table cover and plates, cups, etc with the American Idol logo on them. Decorate the table with lots of cut out stars from silver and blue paper. For centrepiece make a stars shape out of cupcakes.

Before the party frost 40 cupcakes with silver and blue frosting. Put a plastic star in the middle of the cupcakes (party stores). When done with the cupcakes, put them in the middle of the table and make a star shape.

Activities/Games

We have awesome American Idol birthday party ideas for games and activities, have a look below.

There are two ways to have an American Idol party, pick one of our American Idol birthday party ideas for this. Rent/ buy/ borrow a karaoke machine or record a CD beforehand with the songs the guest are going to sing.

You can ask the guests beforehand what song they would like to sing. Prepare yourself by downloading the songs on a CD. You can then play this songs, when the "artists" have to sing. If you have a karaoke machine, just let the guests pick the songs they like!

Also, remind the "judges" about the rules. They have to rate the singers from a scale of 1-5. Every judge has to give a number at the end of each performance. The singer with the highest total score wins.

The judges can not give verbal feedback, as this may upset some singers, as we all know some children are more fragile then others. Prices and certificates are included in this audition. It is best if there can be as many winners as possible.

The judges have to decide on the best:

  • vocal performance

  • costume

  • dancer

  • funniest act

After the audition, give prices to the winners (can be trophies or certificates with candy or chocolate). Certificates can be made before the party (use your computer to make certificates designated for winners in different categories).

After the prices are presented it's time to eat! After eating let the girls play around and let them sing some popular songs which your daughter picked beforehand and which she also believes her friends like. If you have a karaoke machine let the guests pick which songs they want to sing and simply just let them play around.

Extra Activities- American Idol Piñata, this is really fun for smaller kids! Fill a microphone or a star piñata with candy, stars, tattoos and glow items for extra fun!

Microphone Cake
Use a round cake and a sheet cake to make a microphone. Cut a narrow piece from the sheet cake to create the microphone handle. Frost the round cake with white frosting and sprinkle blue colour sugar over the top. Frost the handle with chocolate frosting. Add a piece of black liquorice whip to the end of the handle to make a remote microphone chord. A good tip is to freeze your sheet cake/s before cutting into pieces.
