What little girl doesn’t love to get glammed up, throw on a boa and act like a celebrity now and then? A Hollywood Red Carpet party is such a fun theme for girls of any age. I have always loved to watch the red carpet, even as a little girl. So, I would have loved to have had a red carpet-themed party as a child! I did this theme a few years ago with some other fun items from Shindigz. You can check that out on my website.
To make your little one feel like a real celebrity, set up your own red carpet and Hollywood backdrop right at your own home! To create mine, I used the VIP backdrop and simply taped it right to the wall with some scotch tape. It’s easily removable and because it’s made of vinyl, it sticks to the wall by just using static cling. To create that movie-premiere feeling, I personalized this Hollywood Marquee sign standee to say "Happy Birthday Maddie" as if our party guests were attending their very own movie. Then, on either side, we had to have some super star and popcorn balloons. No red carpet is complete without the paparazzi! This giant paparazzi standee is SO fun and the kids loved it. The best part is that it comes with a sound box that makes camera clicks and flash noises to really get those imaginations going! And we had to keep those pesky paparazzi at bay with our red rope and stanchions. We also used this area for our photo booth!
Kids love really being immersed in a theme (I do too!). To create their very own fancy premiere or awards night table, use a simple red polyester table cloth, and then add some sparkle with a gold sequin tablecloth down the middle. These stretchy chair covers are one of my favorite party supplies. With extra stretch, they go over any folding chair and make your party look put together. Add a simple red stretch band to the back to tie in the theme. To create a tall centerpiece, I used two red cake plates stacked up with a movie camera metal centerpiece. This centerpiece has a place for a votive candle if your party is in the evening. I picked up some simple red iced cupcakes at my local grocery store and gave them extra shimmer with some gold and silver Candyfetti. On the top layer, these Awards Night Mints were the perfect addition. And every movie star needs fresh breath!
Each place setting had personalized Walk of Fame plates and cups. I used gold chargers to make the place settings fancy for the kids. Popcorn is a must for a movie premiere, so each place setting had their own personal popcorn container! These are plastic versions, so they also make great favors for the kids to take home! And speaking of favors, I love these personalized chocolate lollipops. The kids loved them too!
When the cupcakes and popcorn were gone, it was time to pose in front of our Hollywood backdrop for some photo booth fun! As you can tell, the kids loved being able to pretend they were celebrities and red carpet reporters. They felt very fancy with all their fun props like feather boas, sunglasses, clapboard, light box, microphones and VIP passes!
Shindigz can make your little one the star of the show!
