My daughter is having her 13th birthday party Sept. 19th. She wants to do a rock star theme. I was wanting to know if anyone had any ideas how to decorate and some of the things I can do to entertain the kids? We are going to have Karaoke and music. I want the kids to have a blast. Any other ideas?

This might be a "gimme," but get your hands on a video game system and Guitar Hero or Rock Band. Preferably with all the different instruments (guitar, microphone, drums). I think most sets come with just one guitar, but will take two if you can get an add'l guitar. And FYI, we can use our Rock Band guitar and microphone with the Guitar Hero games (don't use the drums much in our house, and never tried GH guitar with Rock Band). They're a lot of fun!
Maybe pick up some fun things they can wear while performing. Sunglasses. Scarves. A couple wigs and hats (if that doesn't weird you out). These things don't need to be expensive; you could probably find some funky vests or jackets at a thrift store.
If you can get some strobe lights, that might help set the mood (they might have small ones in the Halloween departments that have been popping up).
As for food, I'm thinking teenagers will be happy with just about any "junk" food. Pizza comes to mind. I'm not sure how you could make that more special or dress it up for the birthday, but just about any kid will devour it.
If I think of anything else, I'll pop back and share. Best of luck, and have a blast with the party!

I am having my birthday in March and I want a pop star birthday, meaning a limo and recording CDs and making demos. If anyone knows where I can do this please tell me. I am a teenager so.
Pop Star Party
You can rent a limo. There are many companies who do this. March is a good time. April or later is prom time and its harder to get and prices go up.
Call a recording studio. They may have time they can allot to you.
