Hollywood Party Theme
The red carpet Hollywood party theme makes everyone a star. Whether you're gathering to watch the Oscars or just hosting a themed party for a teen or adult birthday, the red carpet experience is a popular choice.
Guests can come dressed as glamorous as they wish. You'll need someone to play the role of Joan Rivers to judge who has dressed the part! Oscar style trophies are a great prize for party games and costume contests. You can even give awards for the best actress or actor impersonation.
Roll out the red carpet and lead them to the front door. Replace your front door wreath with a Hollywood star to set the stage.
Guests are greeted in style when you place a table by the entry with champagne flutes for bubbly or other sparkling drinks.
Because the Hollywood scene is about glamour and decadence, your party decorations should match. Go with centerpieces made of roses or feathers. If you're hosting a more casual Hollywood style party, clapboards and balloons are a great choice.
And of course, most glamorous parties have celebrities and if you don't know any personally (most of us don't) we've got the perfect solution. No matter who your guests are (even if they are "real" celebrities), everyone gets a kick out of life-sized celebrity cutouts. Who wouldn't want to have their photo taken with James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, Angelina Jolie, or Sam Embry?
Ten Unique Hollywood Party Ideas:
- Purchase life size cut outs of Hollywood actors and intersperse them throughout the party. Make sure guests have their photos taken with the stars. This is a guaranteed hit!
- Create VIP goodie bags that make your guest feel special. See our ideas on the Hollywood Party Favors page for details.
- Create a poster for the movie themed party you're hosting and have each guest sign as their character. Encourage guests to make up funny quotes that the character they are playing might say. If you're hosting a Hollywood theme party that focuses on a particular movie, purchase a poster for that movie.
- Take a group photo to post on your facebook page, or send to your guests after the party. Get everyone to strike a pose, and capture it for posterity!
- Play movie charades, the Movie Skit Game, or home party games.
- Have an awards ceremony. You can give Hollywood themed trophies or awards for best dressed actor or actress, best skit or impersonation or even best friend or sister!
- Create excitement starting with the Hollywood inspired invitations and party decorations.
- Make a Hollywood Boulevard star walkway. Place each guest's name on a star.
- Roll out a "red carpet" that leads to the front door and place a star on the front door.
- Champagne and sparkling drinks are a must. Break out the bubbly, sparkling waters, and fizzy punches and serve them with style in long stemmed glasses.
