Hooray for Hollywood–Academy Awards/Movie Parties

Some day I am going to throw an amazing Academy Awards style celebration! And I am going to send out invitations in large sealed envelopes that say

“…And the winner is…
YOU—because you’re invited to my awesome Academy Awards party” or something like that.

And I would love it if my party had a red carpet and silhouetted paparazzi, just like this party from Setting the Mood. And a walk of fame featuring my guests along side actual celebrities.

Some spotlights like this would be cool. (And perfect for my MIL’s new movie-themed game room).
And if it were a very formal affair, how great would it be to have glamorous gowns as table centerpieces (just like these ones from Setting the Mood)?

I would have to make these edible Oscars like Joanne (a finalist in my blogoversary party party) did. She was nice enough to tell me that she found her mold on ebay!
And I could send my guests home with these movie-themed Swag bags like Joanne did. After they had their photo op, in front of a glamorous curtain or HOLLYWOOD sign like the one Chris suggested. (She also has links to lots of vendors of fun movie party supplies).

One day!

This would make a great birthday party for the pre-teen/teen set. Get the girls all glammed-up and let them work the carpet and take lots of pictures.

    Oscar parties are fun to have. I’m sad because this year we are not having it and I’ve thought of a few fun ideas. Like having foot prints and hand prints of the stars!

    Use a piece of styrofoam, make your prints and sign the stars name then spray it with gray paint. Makes it look like the footprints outside the theater in Hollywood!


  6. I’ve soo wanted to have an Oscar party but I’m so afraid that since it’s on a Sunday it would be hard to get guests to come.

  9. I have always wanted to have an Oscar party, as well! This year I even put the event on the calendar ‘oscar party’–but then drug my heels and before I knew it–it was too late to begin party planning. *sigh* had fun last night with a few friends–but determined to do something next year with all these wonderful suggestions!!

    That's wonderful. If, however, you're trying to save some money then it can be useful to supplement more expensive party supplies with cheaper, simpler items.

    Nice blog i like it about hollywood theme party decoration
    Since the advent of the moving picture, America has surely had a fascination with Hollywood and movie stars. This is most clearly seen in the high value of celebrity and movie memorabilia.

    Fine stuff. Nowadys People are looking for authenticity when it comes to autographs and other celebrity collectibles and memorabilia.

  13. hollywood party centerpieces says

    Very useful stuff for parties. Any good party will need a good spread and whether you choose to have a sit down meal.
