11 Chic Hollywood Theme Party Ideas
The glitz, the glamour— the excitement of Hollywood! A Hollywood-themed party is a great excuse to get dressed up and feel like a movie star for a day. A Hollywood-themed party can be all-out with luxury cars and designer clothing or down to earth with fun games and activities like trivia, karaoke, and movies. Which of these Hollywood theme party ideas sounds most fun to you?
1. Come as your favorite star
Dress up like an A-lister, feel like an A-lister, become an A-lister. Don your best attire and get ready to party. Invite guests to either dress up as their favorite star or be their future self as a star. This is a fun excuse to get all dressed up with friends, no matter how old you are!
2. Live in the lap of luxury
Your Hollywood party should ooze luxury— so rent a space that’s so luxurious that your guests’ jaws will drop the moment they walk through the door! On Peerspace, you can find affordable and gorgeous mansions to rent for your party in cities throughout the U.S. and beyond!
Some of the spaces available on Peerspace have been previously owned by celebrities, like this Moroccan atrium in Las Vegas that’s part of a mansion formerly owned by internationally acclaimed showman and piano virtuoso and showman Wladziu Valentino Liberace (1919-1987).
Or how about renting out a modern Mediterranean-style mansion with a two-acre estate in California? This mansion comes flush with Hollywood theme party ideas and activities with its tennis court, basketball court, pool, BBQ area, an activity center with renovated modern bathroom and sauna, an expansive lawn with fruit trees, and a nine-hole putting green!
3. Rent a luxury car or limo
Get the party started before you even make it through the front door! Rent a luxury limo and pick up all your friends on the way to the venue or arrive in style in a luxury car! While buying a luxury car might be out of your budget, you might still be able to rent one. Luxury car rentals can range from $1,000 a day to well over $2,000… but to spend a day driving around in a McLaren before the party? It might just be worth it!
4. Roll out the red carpet (or the green screen)
Make all your guests feel like a million bucks by rolling out the red carpet for their arrival! Hire a photographer to snap photos of your guests as they walk into the party or have a Hollywood-style backdrop for your guests to take selfies in front of once they make it to the end of the red carpet!
5. Strut your stuff with a fashion show
Your guests are all dressed up — so make sure they have the opportunity to show off all their fancy digs! A runway show can be sleek and stylish, with a true Hollywood vibe, or fun and laid back, for everyone to let their hair down and be a bit silly! This is one of the Hollywood theme party ideas that would be best with a quality sound system so you can announce who is walking down the catwalk, what they are wearing, and play music as they go!
6. Bask in VIP treatment
Make the world around you do a double-take and ask themselves, “are they someone I should know?” by going all out with the VIP treatment at your Hollywood party! Rent out a VIP room at a club, request bottle service, hire a bouncer…. Go all out! On Peerspace, you can find tons of fun, affordable options for VIP venues. For a large party, you can rent out a whole club like this one in LA that offers a fully stocked bar and well-equipped DJ booth with a dance floor in the center of the space!
7. Your very own Hollywood star
Make sure you have fun party favors ready for your guests! One of our favorite options is having an area of the floor covered with Hollywood stars, each with a guest’s name. This is a fun photo op and also a great party favor for guests to take home with them! Another fun party favor idea would be little oscar awards for “best dressed,” “A-list attitude,” and more!
8. The Hollywood Sign and other fun decorations
When you think Hollywood— the Hollywood sign probably comes to mind. This is a no-brainer decoration to have at the party but there are other fun decorations you should include too. Look for gold balloons, streamers, and table cloths, and go big with a life-size clapperboard. Consider fun Hollywood-themed snacks like popcorn and star-shaped cookies or get fancy with champagne flutes and golden macarons!
9. Show off your talent
Hollywood is about more than fashion and fancy cars— it’s about talent too! So what talent do your guests plan on bringing to the party? Have them show off their skills with an improv hour, karaoke, or other talent activities! Don’t forget to end the night with an award ceremony for all the fantastic performances.
10. Show us what you know!
So you think you know Hollywood? Prove it! Add trivia into your Hollywood theme party ideas so your guests can show off all their A-list knowledge! Here are some questions to get you started: How old is the Hollywood sign? How far is Hollywood from Beverly Hills? What was the name of the first studio in Hollywood?
11. Movie time!
As the night winds down, break out the popcorn and end the night with a Hollywood movie viewing! Some fun considerations could be the first film completed in Hollywood (The Count of Monte Cristo) or the top-grossing film of all time — Avatar!
