Rock N Roll Diner Birthday Party Ideas for a Tween or Teen

My daughter wanted to have a fun theme party for her 12th birthday and so we came up with the rock n roll diner theme. Of course it is not a new or original theme but one that allows you to be creative and have just as much fun decorating for the party as you have during the party. Here is what we’ve come up with. So far, we had been taking all our party ideas and inspirations from but we knew it was time to search somewhere else. 

Rock n Roll Diner Birthday Party Invitations

We decided to make the birthday party invitations in the form of a menu. Some construction paper, regular printer paper, and some contact paper are the essentials for this project. The rest is up to you. You can use your computer to type the menu words on the inside of the invitation and print it out using the printer paper. For the menu cover you can add stickers or illustrations of typical diner food to make it interesting. If you set up the decorations as a “test” you can take a picture of the dining area and include it on the menu (printing it out in black and white would be best). Glitter pens can add some glitz or you can use sticker letters or simply write them out. Let your tween and teen have at it and allow them to be creative!

Rock n Roll Diner Birthday Decorations

You can decorate the party space, with the help of your tween or teen, using some thrifty and fun decorations. You can typically find old records at thrift stores which can be used as wall art. You can also use these records as chargers for the dinner plates. The local dollar store often has Coca Cola dishware and glasses for sale which the party guests can use to eat and drink from. Your tween or teen can cut out black musical notes that can also hang on the walls and/or chandelier. Red and white vinyl checkered tablecloths would be perfect to add a diner appeal to your table and protect it at the same time.

Rock n Roll Diner Birthday Food

When you think of an American diner you probably think of burgers, fries, and a shake. So this makes the diner birthday party food simple to make. Of course not all tween and teen guests may like cheeseburgers or hamburgers so you can add a few other easy items to the menu like grilled cheese sandwiches, corndogs, and hot dogs. You can cook up curly fries and crinkle fries or whatever other french fry your tween or teen likes. For drinks you can offer the tweens and teens root beer floats (or ice cream sodas), milkshakes, and several different soda choices. For desert you can have a traditional birthday cake or bake a round cake and decorate it to look like a record. For my daughter’s birthday party we have opted to make cheeseburger cupcakes. You can find recipe ideas all over the web. They are very easy to make and a lot of fun for the kids to eat. You could also look into making a birthday cake in the shape of an old convertible or a jukebox. Whatever food you plan on serving you can list in the menu invitations which you can ask the guests to bring with them so they can place their order.

Rock n Roll Diner Birthday Fun and Games

How can you entertain the tween and teen guests at your child’s birthday party? With the Rock n Roll Diner theme it seems to only make sense to have some sort of musical game to play. You can choose musical chairs only with whoopie cushions in each seat to make it more fun for the tweens and teens. You could set up a hula hooping contest to see who can hula hoop the longest while listening to oldies music. You can have a dance off or even play freeze dance where you randomly shut off the music and everyone has to stay as still as possible until the song restarts. After the music stops you can take the kids into the movie watching area and put on an old classic. If you have a garage with outlets you can set up a “drive in” movie experience for your party guests. All you need is a tv (one with a fairly big screen would be best) and a dvd player. Oh, and the car of course. My husband has a pick up truck and we just let the girls sit in the back with some popcorn and soda while enjoying the movie. You may be able to hang up some string lights to add a magical feel to the movie watching experience.

Rock n Roll Diner Birthday Party “Goodie Bag” Ideas

No party would be complete without a “goodie bag”. Goodie bags are parting gifts for the tween and teen guest to take home with them. When it comes to goodie bags you can go crazy with what you put inside of them. You could put some musical themed costume earrings or jewelry from your local tween and teen jewelry store into each of the bags for a girls party. You can also include some sunglasses-which may be given at the door as the guests arrive so they can wear them during the party. You could give the sunglasses and a bag to store their goodies in when they arrive and hand out goodies throughout the party if you wish. For example you could hide a small surprise at the bottom of the popcorn buckets (you can find cheap plastic ones at the dollar store) that be a part of the goodie bag.

Whatever you decide to do for your tween or teens Rock n Roll Diner birthday party make sure you include them in the pre-party planning, decorating, and the decision on games and the movie. It will surely be a blast for your tween or teen and their party guests.

Concern of Huge Corn Consumption among Americans

From off the cob to the infamous high fructose corn syrup, we are a corn-fed nation. And the beloved vegetable may be slowly killing us. Hence, some testogen reviews and tips advice to curb corn consumption for your health.

Since the 1970s, corn use has been on a steep and steady rise. This pervasive vegetable is in bacon, hot dogs, coffee, canned pasta, salad dressing, pizza, rice, sodas, and almost every frozen convenience dinner available. Sixty pounds of high fructose corn syrup alone is consumed by the average US citizen each year.

Obesity and cases of diabetes have made a similar climb over the last thirty years. High fructose corn syrup, a substitute for sugar, has been labeled the number one culprit by consumers and nutrition experts desperate for a way to find a quick and easy solution to the nation’s health problems. According to Mary Englick, registered dietician at the Exempla Lutheran Medical Center, there’s nothing wrong with the sweetener itself, but rather how much is consumed.

“It is really a cheap form of sugar. It can sweeten foods and it can bulk them up. So the food manufacturers can increase the amount of food that they shove at us and make it cheap, and then the consumer looking for a deal says ‘Hey, I can buy this much soda or food and it’s really inexpensive,’ and then they buy and overeat it.”

High fructose corn syrup may be a deal on the shelves, but Englick stresses that buying and eating in bulk is expensive for our health.

Donna Feldman, a private practice registered dietician, agrees. “It is way too easy to suck down 600 empty calories in a soda pop that is not going to get burned off, especially by kids.”

It isn’t just high fructose corn syrup that has pervaded all the food groups, either. Corn starch and meal is used to give bulk and flavor to dough for all kinds of bread products and instant mixes for cakes and pastries. Cows are fed on corn, and so traces of the vegetable’s proteins are left in the beef they later provide. A ground composition of corn can keep pizza from sticking to pans and rice grains from sticking to each other. It’s even used in paper and plastic production, covering the disposable flatware that people eat off of.

“Because corn has such strong lobbyists, and we have so many things that are dependent on corn, it’s really hard to avoid,” Englick said. “It’s crazy how much corn we have in our diet.”

When a high amount of one type of food is consumed over a long period of time, Englick explains that ‘exposure to contamination’ is risked as a result. “When you eat a large volume of one thing, that volume increases your chance of being allergic to that item.”

This is not an unheard of theory. In America, rice is considered an allergy-safe food, and is often used in elimination diets when determining other food allergies. However, it is estimated that ten percent of Japan’s population, who consider rice a staple, is allergic to it.

Both Feldman and Englick agree that corn is considered a very rare allergy by allergists. However, they both agree that very few of those same experts realize that corn is, in fact, a grass. Allergy to grass is far more common and readily tested in the United States. Allergy sufferers are rarely tested for corn in comparison.

“Here’s what happens to allergists,” Feldman says. “They are massively frustrating. Environmental allergies are easy, because if you make contact with pollen and you have a reaction, you’re allergic. With food allergies, people can have delayed reactions or reactions they don’t expect, and doctors don’t like that because it’s messy, so they send them to (a nutritionist).”

Don Hijar, who has worked in the grass and agriculture industry for 20 years and is owner of the grass seed company Pawnee Buttes Seed, confirms that corn, zea mays, is part of the scientific family poaceae, the grass family. Those who suffer from grass allergy could possibly have reactions to the proteins in corn that activate reactions and not realize it.

High fructose corn syrup, the bulk of the nation’s indirect corn intake, does not have proteins that can cause an allergic reaction. Even the sugar substitute can cause problems, though, for people who both do and do not have an allergy to corn. High exposure to corn can also result in a food intolerance.

“A true allergy has a process. It can be defined. But say you have a kid with excema. You can test them for allergies, But if the kid has no globulins or other markers for an allergy, it could be an intolerance. Intolerances have hundreds of possibilities. There hasn’t been a lot of research into food intolerances. Trying to define why there is an intolerance doesn’t really help because we don’t have a medicine that can fix it, and I’m not sure we ever will,” Feldman says.

With a lack of research to define what an intolerance is and how it can be handled, it is largely left to the consumer to experiment with their diet and see what makes them feel unhealthy and what doesn’t. With the abundance of corn in our diets, those suffering from a variety of ailments should see if the culprit is sitting in the bulk of the everyday foods they eat.
