Creative Ideas for a Music Theme Bar & Bat Mitzvah, Wedding, Sweet 16 or Party
A love of music is universal. For many it is a passion in life that translates into collecting music, creating it, learning to DJ, writing about it, singing, and more. If you have a wedding, bat/bar mitzvah or party coming up, and you love music, a music theme might be perfect for you. Bring your guests into your world and share your love of music with lots of clever and creative musical elements that will have everyone feeling the noise.
What better venue for a music themed event than a theater? Toyota presents Oakdale Theatre in CT specializes in creating beautiful and unique weddings, mitzvahs and parties.
Music Theme Centerpieces
For your centerpiece, why not kick things into a gear with a colorful, eye-catching music-themed sculpture. Balloon Artistry can turn out just about any shape you can imagine into a creative centerpiece, including a rocking guitar!
Mizrahi Centerpieces created this fun jukebox centerpiece which featured all the guest of honor’s favorite musical inspirations.
Sheet Music Decorations
Paper can be fashioned into a lot of beautiful decorations, and using sheet music gives added dimension while keeping with the theme. Cut outs of treble clefs can be used in the centerpieces, and paper flowers made with sheet music are a whimsical detail.
The invitation sets the tone for your event. Many of us remember the days of tape cassettes, and this invitation is a fun nod to old school music before the age of technology kicked into high gear. A similar cassette design “Our Love Mix” is available from Minted.
Vinyl record invitations will definitely set the tone for your event! Available from Minted.
There are a ton of ways to create eye-catching decor with re-purposed musical instruments and equipment. Your local thrift store or antique shop should turn up some interesting options. Here, some guitars and music stands get a new life as sign in boards for the guests. Use an old turntable to display records for guests to sign.
Go retro with classic mix tapes that can double as favors.
Let your guests take their cue and find their seats. Musical Note Place Card Holders available from My Wedding Favors.
Music and Entertainment
Your music and entertainment vendor can help you find creative ways to incorporate the theme into the entertainment. Let guests rock out with interactive games like Rock Band from Amusitronix – The VR Guys, iDance from Interactive Productions, Dance Dance Revolution or Guitar Hero from Amazing Amusements or Interactive Entertainment Concepts. There are so many possibilities to choose from!
