It's my 17th birthday soon and I want to throw a big Hollywood themed party. As you know it's extremely hot in South Africa and I chose to throw a Hollywood pool party. What can I do with the theme and how can I use it?

For a Hollywood party games, you could put on a play or walk the red carpet. You could put a celebrity name on each person's back and you have to ask yes or no statements to find out which celebrity they are.
Invitations: cut out a star out of yellow paper and write down whatever you need to put.
Snacks: you could make star or any shaped sandwiches and some fancy things that famous people would eat!
Wear: If you want you could ask the guests to wear fancy dresses for a red carpet or just put out some of your dresses for the red carpet.
If it is a sleep over, you should watch a movie. Examples: High School Musical, Camp Rock, Twilight, really Hollywood movies. You could also have a game where you write down famous lines from a movie or show and each person says a line and you have to guess what it is from.
Thanks for reading. P.S. Hope you have a great party.

You can get a couple of your friends to help be "paparazzi" and take some awesome keepsake pictures of the party. (01/02/2010)
You definitely need a red carpet (red plastic table clothes folded in half and taped down) leading up to your door. There is a website Shindiz.com that has a lot of Hollywood themed items too. (01/04/2010)

I'm having a Hollywood themed sleepover. Everyone is going to bring their red carpet best. We're going to do make overs and then have a red carpet photo shoot. We are setting up a red plastic tablecloth as the carpet and have a gold foil door decorations. After we are done with the photo shoot we plan on decorating scrapbook pages with stars and all sorts of Hollywood stuff.
Then the next morning we are going to get our pictures developed and everyone can go home with them and glue them in their portfolio/scrapbooks. We are also going to make stars for the Walk of Fame and take pictures with them.
Red Carpet can be purchased for very little at Partycity.com for $6.95 US dollars. (08/03/2008)
My son's 15th birthday is this year. We're having a 15th birthday bash with a Hollywood theme. I have a party planner that is taking care of everything. The center pieces have come out beautiful; movie reels with Oscars on them, red carpet, and disposable cameras on tables. The invitations are VIP style that hang from there neck. We will have someone at the door for checking in.
Each invitation admits 3, and as they walk in there will be a very big wall with star tiles where the people can sign in their names as they walk in. We are giving gift bags to the people. It will have Hollywood key chains, teddys, etc. Can't wait. I'll post how everything comes out, and I'll post a website where the pictures will be. (01/29/2009)
Hey I'm having my sweet 16 in oct and I don't know what I'm going to do yet but what if you guys have your black and white them but have it be a casual party and have it out side somewhere with white tents and like a candy/coffee bar and at night so you can have like really cool lighting and a place where the guys can go play video games, just a few ideas
We are having a Hollywood themed party. Since people in Hollywood have lost their marbles, we are having a marble race. Buy a wire shelf from a kitchen store. Prop it up at a slant. Race the marbles down it. We are also redesigning the Oscar statue in teams. Give each team building supplies--like Tinker toys, blocks, etc. Print up some fake cash on different colors. Reward guests with cash for contests. Give out Oscars for best costumes and other categories you decide on. Hollywood people have money for private planes. We are having guests make paper airplanes. Then they fly them down a marked course. You could have each guest act out a scene they draw from a basket. Ahead of time, you would make up choices, such as "My best friend is wearing the same dress as I am." or "I just found out I got into Harvard." We are also renting pieces from a miniature golf course. Rental companies will let you do this. You can give cash prizes for holes in one, best shot blindfolded, etc. (10/01/2005)

Set the tone by creating a red carpet for your guests as they arrive. Look for an inexpensive red sheet or material at a second-hand store and cut it to three or four feet or whatever works best for your location. If you have a Polaroid camera, take pictures of your guests as they arrive, and give them the photo to take home. Otherwise, send a digital or print photo later.
Have games like auditions and give them scripts and see who does the best.
Go to http://www.birthdayinabox.com It has lots of ideas and party favors in the Hollywood theme. It even has life size celebrity cut outs! (04/19/2007)
I am having a 14th birthday Hollywood theme too. Great idea, BTW. ;]
I am having a red carpet (given!) and maybe celebrity cutouts. Also, my little brother and his friends, and my friends little sister and HER friends, are playing the role of the "paparazzi". They go around asking for the friends autograph. They should all have papers for "celebs" to sign on, then make a book and cut and paste all the signatures on it. The winner of a game can have this major prize.
An idea for invitations is to make a card, and in the front instead of "Hollywood" on the hill it says 'Happy Birthday" or the guests name on it. Another idea is to search "hollywood star maker" on Google and find a star generator and put words in it for the card cover.
A security guard (mom, dad, or relative) can be at the door and ask the guests what their name is (they should answer in their celeb name). The guard checks the list and checks their name off. They open the door for the guest and warn them that there is lots of paparazzi, so don't give out TOO much personal information. ;]
Good luck with the party,
I'm having a Hollywood themed b-day party for my 12 birthday. I am having a red carpet leading into the backyard. martini glasses with water and so much more! Plus my invitations are all hand-crafted from A.C. Moore. We picked up all the stuff to make the cards and started making them. They are scrolls that open saying they are invited to so and so's b-day (not giving my name) and where it is and everything and then it says follow the red carpet into the backyard when you arrive.(01/21/2008)
