How to Plan a Drake Themed Birthday Party

Last Name Papi, First Name Champagne!

Who doesn’t love Drake? I mean, he’s only the most quotable rapper in our world today. Not to mention, hilarious SNL actor and a Scorpio. Heyooo! I’ve been a fan of Drake since So Far Gone came out in 2008. He’s an amazing performer and you know what, why wouldn’t you have a Drake themed birthday party. If Superman and Pokemon can have their own themes, why can’t Drake?

Seriously though, why hasn’t anyone created a Drake themed birthday party guide yet?!

Inspired by Joy the Baker‘s @drakeoncake‘s Instagram account (my favorite account ever), I ventured into designing a Drake themed birthday party of my own. YOLO!

If you follow me on Snapchat, you know that I threw a birthday bash for one of my friends and Drake’s biggest fan. He was turning 35 and honestly, what better way to be on your Worst Behavior than with a Drake themed birthday party!

What a Time to be Alive! Plan a Drake Themed Birthday Party with his iconic lyrics, cheesecake, photo booth signs, and the perfect playlist.

Party planning is, by far, my favorite hobby after cooking! I can’t even begin to tell you how fun it was to plan this party. When you’re a hardcore fan like me (and the birthday boy!), the ideas just flow so easily.

From ordering or making a birthday cheesecake (that’s just Child’s Play) to creating photo booth signs with Drake’s iconic lyrics (HYFR!), to making Drake head cutout stickers for party hats (for my woes), I’m sure you’ll appreciate all the intricate details that made this theme a huge success.

Oh and I forgot to mention, the birthday boy’s favorite Drake song is Marvin’s Room, hence the Drake cake below.

Being a surprise party after all, the lyric “we threw a party, yeah, we threw a party” from Marvin’s Room could not have been more fitting.

I will say, this was a very simple house party. There were no formal invitations made, although I could definitely help you design one. Let me know. The Facebook invite I created was Drake inspired and there was an official hashtag #ViewsFromThe35th.
