Consider sending a personalized backstage pass invitation to your guests. How cool for your guests to get an exclusive invite with your smiling birthday face on it! Your guests will be talking about your party well in advance.

For an extra touch in any of these invitations consider adding star confetti to each one. It might cost a little extra for packaging but your guests will love it and start counting down the days till your party!

Hollywood Birthday Decorations and Party Supplies
Start this party off on the right foot and let all of your guests feel like a star as they walk in on a red carpet runner. You can consider a personalized Hollywood banner to let everyone know where the VIP Hollywood event is.
As your guests enter into the party room make sure they jump right into the Hollywood theme. At the entrance give your guests the opportunity to take a photo with the Hollywood award photo op. Give your guests a personalized Hollywood camera so they can act as paparrazzi and take action photos all night. Think of all the great memories!
Encourage your guests to leave birthday wishes on your personalized Hollywood sign-in board. Place this by the entrance of your party so that all guests have an opportunity to leave their best.
If you can celebrate underneath the Hollywood sign, then your decorations are taken care of. Can't fly out to L.A.? That's not a problem because Party411.com knows how to throw a Hollywood party. Place these Star Walk of Fame stars around the party. Allow each guest to write their name on a star, so everyone can be a star!
An inexpensive way to create a Hollywood atmosphere and bring more color to the party is to hang Hollywood balloons all around your venue. Bouquets are perfect at the entrance, on tables, and for highlighting areas like the bar or dancefloor. We also love hanging decorations for over the dancefloor because they are easy and super fun.
Hollywood table decorations and menu
Use these gold tablecovers to make your tables shine. Serve your food in big popcorn bowls. You can even use these movie buff awards as centerpieces.
A Hollywood birthday party says popcorn, pretzels, nachos and hot dogs. But this is a birthday party so pizza, chili, easy to eat appetizers, desserts and birthday cake are all good choices as well – the food at your party can be as simple or elaborate as you want.
This is a Hollywood party so make sure the drinks are special and a little over the top. Serve drinks in light up glasses. These will have your guests going over the top!
Hollywood Games and Entertainment
Day or night, great entertainment is key to the success of any party. Give your guests a personalized camera so they can capture all of the dancing and good times that will happen through the course of your party.
Consider playing such party games as Charades based on movie themes, or Name that Movie (tell your guests a famous line and have them tell you what movie it was heard in) which will be sure to have your crowd laughing all night long. Everyone wants to be a star and here’s your chance to make it happen. Give the winners of your games the movie buff award, not only will they be the champions but they will always remember your Hollywood party!
Hollywood Party Favors
Send your guests home with a sweet treat from your party. A scrumptious milk or dark chocolate candy bar with a personalized Hollywood birthday wrapper is a delicious souvenir for a wonderful party.
Since you've already given your guests a personalized camera, why not give them a frame as well? Your guests will not only be able to frame their favorite picture but they will also always think of your party!
Enjoy the glitz and glamour of your birthday party! Remember you're the star!
