Hosting a Hollywood Themed Party


Whether hosting an Oscar viewing party or just delighting guests with a fun, themed evening, a Hollywood dinner party is sure to bring a little extra glitz and glam to the table. Below are a few tips to making it a night to remember.

Dress to impress and make it a formalwear occasion. Most of us have party dresses and suits tucked away in the closet just begging to be worn. Your guests will enjoy having an excuse to get dolled up, and the fancy dress code will set this apart from your everyday dinner party.

There are two main ways to execute a Hollywood themed party: go for glam with gold décor or go the movie route and think film strips and vintage movie posters. Keep it classy to match the tone set by the formalwear, and either way a red carpet entrance makes an impressive and fun first impression for your guests.

When it comes to gilded table accents a generous coating of glitter transforms candle holders and wine bottles into wonderfully, elegant centerpieces. We also love this easy, DIY table runner made of gold confetti.

If a movie theme is more your style, popcorn is a must…as both a snack and décor. Use popcorn holders as centerpieces with yellow and white carnations to make “popcorn” bouquets.

The food can range from a formal sit-down meal to simple hors d'oeuvres, whatever you are most comfortable with. Just make sure there is plenty of bubbly – of the wine or cider variety – to round out the festivities. Serve in champagne flutes or the more “Old Hollywood” feeling champagne coupe glasses.

No matter your specific style, a Hollywood party is a great way to get friends and neighbors together for an enjoyable evening in our Goodyear master-planned community.
