Party rock is in the house tonight
Everybody just have a good time
And we gonna make you lose your mind
We just wanna see ya...shake that!
Okay, so, on the weekend we had a very special birthday party for my oldest son's10th birthday! He absolutely loves Quest Crew from America (who also won America's Best Dance Crew). That's what he wanted his party to be about. So, secretly, I had been thinking about it since last December. I emailed their manager and requested for the crew to do a birthday video shout out to Jubs...and guess what? They did!! How awesome is that?! Jubs was over the moon elated and so were Lui and I! We couldn't believe they actually did it, considering their manager actually turned down other requests for the same thing. Wow, talk about special! Quest Crew you guys seriously ROCK!!!
Now, back to the party. I wanted to really transform the house to make it feel like a Quest party. But of course, on a budget :-) I found yellow and purple helium quality balloons at a clearance bin at Spotlight for $5 (for 100 balloons per pack), as well as $1 silver ribbon for the balloon ends. I reused the 'celebrate' banner that I bought for $1 (also from a clearance bin at Spotlight) last December for hubby's birthday. I cut out some black cardboard/paper that I already had and made it into a 'birthday' bunting, which I then painted the letters on with aged silver paint. I found some unused blank DVDs, which was purple on one side (perfect for the Quest theme), so I used some of that to make the 'J' monogram on the feature wall. Here are the preparation pics for you to see...

As much as I would love to say I hired a helium tank for the party, it never made it to our budget lol (especially with all three of our boys' birthdays on the same month). So, my helium balloons were 'faux', hehe. I simply taped the balloons to the ceiling. It's an old trick I've had for a while, and nobody every notices (except when they pull one from the ceiling then my secret's revealed!). I think it's a very clever idea and I heart it!!
