A Teen Hollywood Party will have you and all your friends feeling like a star! It doesn't get much better than that!

The Hollywood Party theme is easily one of the top 3 teen party themes.

There is a good reason it is chosen for so many teen parties.

Everyone loves movies and is familiar with them, and the chance to mimic them with glitz and glamour is fun.

Plus, who can resist the real-life drama of Hollywood?

It is all just so tempting!

Hollywood Party Invitations

  • Print details on a ½ sheets of cardstock, cut into a star shape and decorate with glitter.
  • Create an invitation that looks like a movie ticket.
  • Create an invitation that looks like a movie poster.
  • One of our site visitors, Hannah in NYC, shared her idea for an invitation. She writes:I am having a Hollywood themed party for my 13th in April and I think my invite way is really original; I hope thats not too boastful! :) What I'm doing is buying cheap white (thats the color they come in) 35mm film canisters from eBay, writing my invites on small in width, long in length bits of paper, rolling them up and putting them in the canisters as invites. Obviously, I am gonna work my creativity on them by buying some cheap paint and painting the canisters black with those little white squares around the edges. Pretty cool, huh? Thanks for reading :D

    Hollywood Party Decorations

  • Have a red carpet for your guests to walk on as they enter. It can be as simple as buying a disposable red plastic tablecloth at the party store, using red fabric such as felt, or buying a carpet remnant.
  • Hang up movie posters. Sometimes you can get these for free at your local movie theater! Free stuff is always good...
  • Mix in some clapper boards.
  • Make a sign that says “VIP ENTRANCE” on the front door.
  • Pick a bold color scheme, such as red, black, gold and silver. Use these for balloons and streamers, and even stars!
  • Make a big Hollywood sign.
  • Cover giant starts cut out of posterboard with glitter.
  • You'll find lots of Hollywood party decorations and props for teen parties at our party store links page.
  • Play your favorite party music.
  • Play music from your favorite movies

  • Hollywood Party Food and Beverages

  • Drink beverages from decorated wine glasses.
  • Popcorn!
  • If having a seated dinner, use placecards and serve something that may be elegant, but enjoyed, such as Italian food.
  • Is this a teenage birthday party? Perhaps fun cake designs like a star shaped cake or a drama/theater cake might interest you as a birthday cake idea...

  • Teen Hollywood Party Games

  • As guests arrive, take their pictures on the red carpet. If possible, have some screaming fans to try to get their autographs as they arrive and have several photographers (paparazzi) flashing their photos.
  • Have formal gowns for all the girls to wear – you can pick up some great finds at thrift stores!
  • Divide your guests into teams and hand them scripts of short scenes from favorite movies (print these out prior to the party so you’ll have them ready). Give them a few minutes to practice and then have them perform their scene. Afterwards, present awards. (Make sure you videotape this!)
  • Divide your guests into teams. Give them an assortment of props and costumes such as hats, fairy wands, swords, funny glasses, etc. Give the teams time to prepare a play and then have each team perform. (Make sure to videotape!) Make it even funnier by requiring each team to incorporate a certain line or prop, etc. Afterwards, present awards.
  • Ask your guests to come to the party dressed as a famous celebrity or movie character. Award a prize, such as a basket filled with popcorn ready to pop and movie theater candy.
  • Site Visitor Stacie from Africa suggests "you could do a fashion show... just try on a bunch off different clothes...! So fun!"
  • Let each guest decorate a star on the ground (their Hollywood star)
  • Have a big budget? Have a limo pick up your guests.
  • Want another big budget idea? Rent out a theater auditorium and show your favorite movie – just for you and your friends! Supply plenty of popcorn and sodas and you’ll have a blast!
  • Play the Scene It Game (Amazon)
  • •Purchase and print movie themed printable party games, like Oscar Party Games Pack (Affiliate Link)
