Hollywood Party Tips

Director's Cut Party Supplies

A Hollywood theme party is one of the most popular choices for all ages! Fun for adults, kids, or teens alike! You can choose for yours to be a costume party, a movie premier theme party, or awards night theme party. Just be sure to include lots of glitz and glamour!

Getting Started

Invite everyone to wear “dress-up” clothes with lots of bling, or to dress in gold or silver! If you’re having a costume party, guest can come as their favorite Hollywood movie star! Throw some confetti in the invitations to get everyone in the mood for an exciting party.


Be sure and have extra hats, boas, and tiaras on hand for guest. A Hollywood theme party should have a photographer taking lots of pictures. As guest come in, have someone take their picture. (You could use a digital camera and have someone print these out and give to guest when they leave as a favor.) Have your “official photographer” taking pictures all night. There’s always lots of “flash” at a Hollywood party!

Room Decorating

Use a custom banner to announce your party. Have a red carpet runner for guest to walk down as they enter. Decorate with gold and black or silver and gold. Tie bunches of balloons together and place randomly around the room or party area.

Go as extreme as you want with the decorations including Hollywood themed signs, ceiling dangles, or even large props to set the scene.

Table Decorations

There are several choices for Hollywood themed tableware or you could use gold and/or silver solids. If it’s a small party, you can go fancy with your best china. Place several candles on table(s). Floating candles are a nice idea. If possible, use silver serving trays. (You can even purchase very realistic looking silver trays at party supply stores.) Sprinkle around some confetti or glitter on the table.
