Music in Hollywood is just as important as the films themselves. Certain songs come to mind when a movie is mentioned, for example Wizard of Oz (Somewhere Over The Rainbow), Singin' In The Rain (Singin' In The Rain), Holiday Inn (White Christmas), Pinocchio (When you wish upon a star), and The Sound Of Music (The Sound Of Music). For a Hollywood theme party, include memorable, classic movie songs to fill the party air all night long. Since there are hundreds of songs to choose from select the most well known movie songs possible. Celebrating a special event with outstanding performances that include singing, dancing and acting is a great way to keep the guests involved in the celebration. These fun activities are perfect for guests of all ages and will add a great deal to the celebration. More often than not, these performances will be the perfect addition to a fun filled and exciting event. For a childrenís theme party, include some of their favorite movie soundtracks.

Additional Hollywood theme songs can include artists singing about or referring to Hollywood in some fashion. Songs include Hollywood by Madonna, Hooray For Hollywood by Doris Day, There's No Business Like Show Business and Hollywood by Orange to name a few. For Hollywood party supplies, include various Hollywood theme decorations such as large gold and silver start cutouts, balloons, fake awards, red carpet, and clapboard. Creative idea: Matching or contrasting color decor items such as plates and cups will work for any theme ideas. If you specify the type of clothing for a social event like summer causal, give a few examples of what is acceptable and more importantly what isn't. When all is said and done, favors given to those guests who were able to attend will both feel appreciated and be reminded of the day whenever they look at that favor.

Homemade Holly party supplies should make the Hollywood themed party a night to remember. Hollywood is all about the glitz & glamour so use plenty of glitter, gold, and silver party supplies. Cut out stars and decorate with glitter. Hang the stars from the ceiling by punching a hole at the top of the star and hang in the party area. Making the Hollywood sign would take some effort, but worth it. Use a large sheet of paper and draw out the Hollywood sign or use a more artistic approach and decorate the Hollywood with glitter and bright colors. There are many ways to design a Hollywood sign so compare what others have done previously for ideas.

Homemade Hollywood party supplies should also include the party table as well. Most people will find that celebrating a special event with amazing event trimmings, designs and materials is always a great way to add fun to a festive celebration. Enjoyable designs that are perfect for guests of all ages will enhance the event and make the guests feel very special. More often than not, these colorful embellishments will add a lot of attention to the celebration.Faux award trophies make a nice centerpiece along with plenty of confetti and white or flowers. For those who do not have the room or want for a long red carpet, use a red tablecloth to represent the red carpet at a Hollywood movie premier. For a Hollywood themed birthday banner, create a sign which reads Welcome To (insert name) Hollywood Birthday Bash. Cut out the text and string together with yarn or string or make one large banner. Using photos from old Hollywood stars to more recent stars will also add to the Hollywood ambience.


A Hollywood theme cake can include movie reels, clapboard, mini Hollywood sign, gold stars, and plenty of glitz and glamour. This entertaining celebration is the ideal time for a variety of creative sweets and other tasty treats designed especially for this event. These items are always a great addition to a celebration and most often the addition of enjoyable desserts that are designed especially for this gathering will make everyone feel very extraordinary.A Hollywood cake can be made to look like a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame. Inside the star, write the celebrantís name with a small gold circle underneath with a small cake inside the circle. To make a perfect star for the Hollywood theme cake, take a large sheet of paper compass, ruler, and pencil to begin. For those who do not wish to draw a star from scratch, print out sections of the star and piece it together. For the star, use a muted pink with white and black dots, with a dark background with white and black dots. Gold fondant or buttercream should be used for the outline of the star and the text inside it.

A Hollywood cake can also be made to look like the famed Hollywood sign on top of the Hollywood hills. Add decorate touches to the cake by placing gold Hollywood stars on sticks and place them in the hills. The stars can either be made from fondant or cut out from paper. Use additional Hollywood party supplies such as movie posters, tableware items, curling ribbon, and confetti to decorate the party.

Since Hollywood is the home of scandal and drama you should have no trouble at all coming up with great ideas for this party theme.

This simple tip will ensure that the hostess has a stress free and very entertaining time during the actual celebration. As each of your guests arrives at the party you can give them a pseudonym and turn them into players. Some guests will be cops, some directors, some actors and some agents; itís entirely up to you concerning ratio and assignment. Then give each of these actors a star card with a clue on it. The guests will have to mingle with each other in order to compare clues and make connections. The players can make alliances to combine clues or work alone trading a peek at their clue for someone elseís. Make yourself the Chief of Police and tell your guests that the first person to come to you with the name, motive and or method of murder correct is the star winner.

Hollywood will go down in history as Tinsel Town, or the town that never sleeps. It is situated northwest of downtown LA and is a huge center for arts, culture and the famous line of movie studios. However the history of Hollywood has unfolded it has always been deeply portrayed in the movies created right there in the same town. Most people are amazed at the history behind many of the shows from the present and past. Like others before them the times of past and the recordings are often as interesting now as they were many years ago.

As Hollywood was a much more centrally located area in the past, it has now leaked a bit around its edges and over into adjoining locales. The areas surrounding it such as the Westside neighborhoods have also been drawn into the industry.

As its own district within the city of Los Angeles the town of Hollywood doesn't contain its own municipal governing body. Although Hollywood often appoints an honorary title upon one of its long standing members, known as the honorary, Mayor of Hollywood, this is indeed just in name only and only lasted up until the most recent Mayor of Hollywood, Johnny Grant, died in January of 2008. However Hollywood chooses to display its respect for some of its comrades has always been a topic of interest within this small town. Where movies are made of love stories or tragic ones, it is an inevitable possibility that even the stories of those who help to create the stories, may one day be seen in a movie theater as well. Plan ahead by including at start time for the day and if needed include a reasonable end time as well. Don't wait until the last minute to set up for a celebration, you will be hurried and stressed by the time the guests start to arrive.
