Glitz, glamour, excitement, action….and most of all, ENTERTAINMENT! These words can only mean one thing – Hollywood! So it’s no wonder that Hollywood and Movies are such fun and popular themes for bar & bat mitzvahs, Sweet 16s and parties. If you’re thinking of a Hollywood theme for your event, we hope these photos will inspire you. Thank you to all our amazing Decor & Centerpieces Specialists for sharing your creative designs!
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.

Red Carpet Entrance
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.

Step & Repeat Photography is a popular service offered by companies such as Abacus Studios and Interactive Entertainment Group. 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. Abacus Studios is offering $300 off Any Step and Repeat Package through February 28, 2014.
Hollywood was swinging at Powerhouse Studios in East Hanover with these custom-made centerpieces topped by custom imprinted 36″ latex balloons and a large collar of smaller latex balloons underneath from Life O’ The Party. Large balloons create a real “WOW’ effect for your guests.
Life O’ The Party also has exclusive “Renterpieces” with a Hollywood Twist. The entire large centerpiece is all available for rent. The centerpiece is customized for each event but you can rent it for far less than the cost of making it for you to take home. Just add some of their colorful balloons and you’ll be making movie magic for all your guests!
SBZ Events creates Hollywood drama with a deep red and black color palette. Large glowing photo cubes holding images of popular movies are held up by golden statues. Red up-lighting adds elegance and richness to the look.
Sticking with the movie theme, this film strip centerpiece from Balloon Bouquets of Long Island sits atop a bed of movie-related items and popcorn. Coordinating favors by guests’ plates are also in popcorn tubs – a great touch!
These DIY Oscar Centerpieces can be made by spray painting lightweight male barbies gold! Hot glue the figure to a stand, which can be a tuna can, also spray painted gold. Have your “Oscar” hold a ball of flowers in your color palette which you can buy from your florist. Instructions from Everyday Celebrating.
Or, for an easier option, Oscar trophies can be purchased from the Hollywood Mega Store.
Red Carpet Photo Booth
Far from the typical photo booth experience, guests will feel like celebrities with the Red Carpet Photo Booth from City Sounds Entertainment. Photos are printed in seconds after your guests take pictures of themselves on a red carpet with a unique “Movie Star” backdrop. And you get to keep a disc of everyone’s photos that were taken! For more information, check out City Sounds Entertainment.
Decor can be kept minimal if your venue already has a Hollywood theme! Powerhouse Studios’ Paramus facility is a state-of-the-art interactive Hollywood themed venue. It’s a one-of-a-kind space that wows people every time they attend a party, and they keep adding and changing things to keep it fresh and exciting.

Bat & Bar Mitzvah Logo & Favors
Custom logos are a wonderful way to “brand” your event and showcase your theme and colors. The logo can be the cohesive decor element that is carried through to the centerpieces, stationery, GoBo lighting, cake, favors and more!
For bat mitzvah girl Molly’s “Mollywood” theme, Gotham T-Shirts created a sparkling, star-studded logo that was imprinted on apparel favors.
