Hollywood Theme Party Decor | Bat & Bar Mitzvah, Party

Hollywood Decor by Balloon Artistry

When you think of Hollywood, one of the first images is the famous Hollywood sign in the hills. Balloon Artistry incorporates the Hollywood sign into the ballroom’s backdrop for a striking effect, and highlights the theme with neon illuminated feather centerpieces.

For Molly’s Bat Mitzvah, Mizrahi Centerpieces created a “Mollywood” sign with a cascading reel of childhood photos.  The look was completed with life-sized gold statues of the guest of honor.

Nothing says Hollywood more to your guests than a walk down the red carpet, past the flashing cameras of the paparazzi and into your dazzling event for a night to remember.

As each guest walks the red carpet, they can channel their inner celebrity and pose for photographers in front of a custom backdrop, similar to what you see at the Oscars and Grammys.
