Everyone loves the glamour of the old movies. Seeing the Hollywood sign light up over the Hollywood Hills is an iconic moment, and an image that conveys all the excitement, decadence and opulence of the film stars’ world. Having a Hollywood theme is a really popular party styling look at the moment and it works well for weddings, birthdays or corporate celebrations. It’s a style that is always successful, and if you do it properly people will be talking about your event for weeks and months to come. One of our brides even told us that she had got engaged in front of the Hollywood sign letters and that was why she wanted to have a movie star feel to her big day!
If you look online you can find many fun and interesting ideas for making your Hollywood party fabulous. Of course for your sparkling centrepiece you must have our gorgeous Hollywood Letter Light which will take pride of place in your venue, and they are sure to become the focal point of the whole evening. Our letters look amazing anywhere – stately homes, marquees or country bars. On a warm summers night you could even place them outside at the entrance to your venue to greet your guests as they arrive.
Style is always the order of the day at a Hollywood party and asking your guests to come in formal evening wear guarantees that everyone will look fabulous. You could even suggest a monochrome theme to reflect the days of the black and white movies. To emulate the luxury of the golden days of Hollywood dress your venue with as much opulence as you can, you can never go too over the top with this style! Gold scatter cushions, magnums of champagne and chandelier lights all add up to make your guests feel a million dollars.
A formal sit down meal works brilliantly with this theme and to entertain your guests you could set out some film star trivia questions for your friends or even encourage guests to film their own movie clips on phones and tweet them out using your event hashtag. After dinner get your guests to dance to the sounds of the Hollywood era with a jazz band or even a tribute act for one of the famous singers of the time – how about Frank Sinatra?
At the end of the evening send your guests home with a Hollywood themed gift bag including a miniature champagne bottle and a classic movie DVD such as Breakfast at Tiffany’s or It’s A Wonderful Life. Movie themed parties are always a success as no one can resist the mystique of this bygone era and experiencing a movie star lifestyle, even if just for one night, is always unforgettable. And without those letters Hollywood just wouldn’t be the same so make sure that you include them in your big event too!
