Have a Music-Themed Party

Updated on October 24, 2016

Party or Recital for Music Lovers!

Host a party for your favorite musician or musicians! A music themed party is a good idea for a birthday celebration. Also, music teachers or school band instructors can hold a fun party or a special recital. There are plenty of supplies available for invitations, decorating, serving food, party favors, and more.

Music-Themed Invitations

Here are a few ideas for invitations. You can print out a flier on computer paper with a border of music notes, or get cards with a blank inside that have a music design on the front. Write your invitation on the inside. Also available are invitations to a music birthday party.

Music Note Paper Goods

Paper goods with music notes are available. You could keep everything black and white, or add another color such as red or blue. For example, use a red tablecloth and the black and white paper goods. Have red punch and use some red balloons along with the white music balloons. Use red party streamers and also some music note garland.

Music-themed Desserts

A cake could be decorated with white frosting and black music notes, or it could be made in the shape of a musical instrument such as a keyboard or guitar. Or serve cookies in the shape of music notes on a serving tray. Try making chocolate candies in the shapes of music notes!

This was made for a girl's sweet sixteen birthday party. It was chocolate with butter cream icing covered with marshmallow fondant and decorated with gumpaste music notes.

Real Music!

Don't forget the real music! A recital can have soft music playing before it begins. A fun party can have background music. Have the CDs and player ready.
