Hollywood Star Sweet 16 Party

Lights! Camera! Action! And what an action filled night it will be as your guests are smiling and posing for the camera! A Hollywood theme Sweet 16 party is a popular and fun theme that your friends will always remember. If you don't feel like doing all the work, check out our Hollywood party package.

Hollywood Sweet 16 Invitations
A fabulous Hollywood theme invitation will let your guests will know they’re in for a star studded evening.

For such a special occasion, a personalized Hollywood semi-custom caricature invitation is perfect. Have the guest of honor dressed to the nines, standing on the red carpet, surrounded by fans and paparazzi! The possibilities are truly endless! Once your art is drawn we can use your caricature to create seating cards, sign in boards, centerpieces, cutouts and more for your party!

How about a ticket or a backstage pass as a way to invite everyone to your party? Use a backstage pass invitation or a ticket invitation to invite everyone to your Hollywood party. Both can be ordered with a lanyard and lanyard holder so everyone to wear their pass or ticket to the party.

Hollywood Sweet 16 Party Decorations
The lights will be flashing and the action beginning before your guests ever walk through the door! Have some of your guests be the paparazzi. Give them cameras and have them snap away as everyone is walking in. You could even hire actors to welcome your guests and have them dressed as paparazzi and adoring fans.   

“Celebrity” guests deserve a celebrity entrance so be sure to have a red carpet waiting for them. They’ll stroll down this classic walkway until they reach the entrance to the party. Then hang a  personalized banner to welcome your stars.

Such a special event calls for special lighting. Rent spot lights to wash the walls in color or hire a lighting company to come in and put up moving light fixtures and even a spotlight outside.  And, be sure to arrive at your party in a limo just like the stars. Make your grand entrance up the red carpet with everyone watching and snapping pictures!

There are some "party basics" that we think are a must for a Sweet 16.  The first is a place for guests to leave well wishes for the guest of honor.  Get your guest's autographs on a Hollywood theme sign in board!

Our second party basic, for a larger party, is seating cards.  But, not just an ordinary seating card.  These cards add another fun touch to the party.


  • A personalized Hollywood theme seating card is an easy choice for your Hollywood Sweet 16 party.
  • Clapboard keychains, silver star clackers, and gold award statues also make a fun seating card - just write your guest's name and table information right on them with a Sharpie pen.
You'll want balloons at your seating area and sign in area as well. Choose and mix silver and gold balloons. A professional balloon company can also get you Hollywood theme balloons to decorate your party. Best of all, they'll do all the set up! You can even add your name to all of the star Mylar balloons.

Create your own walk of fame on the floor with silver stars. Write each guest’s name on a star (and maybe some truly famous people as well) and place them all over the room. Everyone will love finding his/her own star on the walk of fame.


Hollywood Table Decorations

Make sure your tables glitter just like your guests! Cover the tables with black linens and glittery overlays. Choose napkins to match your event colors - we used red, black and silver.  You can get linens from the party location or from an event rental company.

After you have your linens decided, choose a fabulous centerpiece.  Here are some of our favorite Hollywood centerpiece ideas:
  • Black top hats with a small hole in the top and balloons coming out for a fun and inexpensive centerpiece.
  • Flowers are always a classic centerpiece.  As your florist to create centerpieces using the colors of your event.
Silver beads make great napkin rings and favors for your guests. (And we guarantee you that they will all end up wearing their beaded necklaces during the rest of the party!) 
Imprinted cocktail napkins are great for cocktails and dessert at a Sweet 16 party. Have the guest of honor's name and event date and add a Hollywood theme graphic. Or choose fun and festive pre-printed Hollywood theme cocktail napkins.
sweet 16 games and activities
Most of the activity at your party will take place on the dance floor. Make sure your DJ or band has plenty of giveaways for the dancefloor like noisemakers, hats and glow jewelry.
Or, how about the chance to be someone completely different in the picture? With photo ops your guests can be a Hollywood starlet, a wizard, basketball player, disco dancer, or even the driver of a groovy VW bus!
