Hollywood Theme Party Invitation Ideas

I found a great website where you can make your own hollywood party invitations if you want to add that personal touch to your party. If not why not invite your guests for a black tie night! Whichever invitation you decide will work for your hollywood theme.

If you decide to make your own invitations then here are several other hollywood party projects that you can do to match your party invitations.

Wrap up your wine bottles in bottle labels and never lose your glass of wine with personalized glass charms. Place the candle lanterns around the party room to give your party that hollywood glow. Announce your party to the guests with a door sign. When it comes to decorating the table make sure you use the napkin ring/place card combo and the table tents so your guests know where they are sitting for the party.

Putting on the Glitz......

You can go simple with your hollywood theme party or you can go over the top. Whatever you decide your party will be the talk of the town. Start by rolling out the red carpet for your guests and have it leading up to your party room.

For an authentic looking hollywood theme choose either black and gold or black and silver as your theme colors. Hang Gold or Silver Metallic Columns in the doorway of your party room. Sprinkle stars in all sizes over everything: entryways, tables, walls, Hang stars from the ceiling and put hollywood signs on the wall. Don't forget to get black and gold or silver balloons to put throughout the room. Use life-sized cutouts of Hollywood legends around your party rooms to make guests feel they are truly in Tinsel Town.

Hang black and white photographs of Hollywood legends around the room. Decorate the tables with silver or gold tablecloths and white stargazer lily centerpieces.
party supplies

Display the food on silver or gold platters. And depending on how fancy your going you can use black glass plates or otherwise if this is a no fuss party you could use black and ivory paper plates and black plastic forks.

Hollywood Theme Party Games

While your guests are enjoying your Hollywood Party why not host a murder mystery? Whether you choose "Night at the Waskers" or "And the Winner is........these games are a lot of fun and will keep you and your guests entertained for the whole party.

"Night at the Waskers"
Wasker night is an evening filled with glitz and glamour; a time to celebrate the accomplishments of fellow actors and actresses with the coveted Wasker award. After the awards are handed out, the industry hits the party scene. And no party is more prestigious than the bash held at Oakley Stewart's mansion. This year, however, something goes terribly wrong.

Ashley Canne, who hours ago won Best Lead Actress, has been found dead. The guests are not trained detectives, but fortunately, many have played one on television. Cops? Who needs them! This group of celebrities and wannabees will solve the mystery themselves.

"And The Winner Is..........."
Could anything be more exciting (and tense) than the Academy Awards? This mystery takes place on the night before the big night during a private party thrown by Columbus Studios celebrating the studio's blockbuster hit "Back When I Loved You".

Unfortunately, the big celebration goes disastrously wrong when one of the guests present dies after drinking a glass of champagne. The murderer must be one of those present in the room who include two stars of the film, the movie's director, producer, costume designer and the studio's public relations manager... one of these people couldn't wait until tomorrow night for their dreams to come true.

This game has the same characters as the scripted large-group mystery of the same name with the same victim, but a different murderer. Partially scripted clues make this game perfect for first-timers as everyone at the party gets the chance to live the life of a Hollywood star (if only for a few hours!).

A clue-based evening of murder and movie intrigue loosely based on the scripted game of the same name. The setting is a private studio party on the night before the Academy Awards and emotions and ambitions are running high!

Don't forget your background music for your party and if you decide that a murder mystery is not for you then maybe you and your friends would enjoy playing the Hollywood Improv game.

I have added a fun hollywood theme party trivia game also.

Hollywood Improv Game
Have you missed your Hollywood calling? This Party Game Kit provides a set of 12 hilarious improvisation games themed around Hollywood movies and television programs. These games are sure to make your next party fun for all, providing memories that will last. The kit comes with a set of warm up improvisation exercises to get your group in the mood. These exercises are followed by three rounds of Improvisation Theater activities specifically design for amateur use. Your guests will have so much fun, they're sure to ask for the sequel.
