Why We Love Old Hollywood Glam Themed Events
Revisiting Past Hollywood Glam Themed Events
If you’re thinking of having a glam Hollywood party there are so many different routes to take with it! Some of our favorite ideas include an Oscars or awards party, a costume party, or an event that honors a famous actor. Occasions that fit perfectly with this theme include weddings, Sweet 16 parties, or a small birthday gathering.
Dress Up the Decor
We can guarantee you this: decorating for an old Hollywood glam party will be a blast! Old Hollywood glam requires floor-swept round tablecloths, a crystal centerpiece in the middle of each table, and romantic candlelight to make your glitz sequins shine. A primarily black, white, and red color scheme is the perfect starting point. It’s your choice when it comes to silver or gold accents!
Integrate black and white photographs of famous actors into your decor by hanging them on walls, placing them on buffet tables, and propping them behind bar areas. Include red round tablecloths, black chair covers, and red/silver chair bands to mimic our mock up above. Finish your tablescapes with elegant gold charger plates, printed menus, and black napkins.

Make it a Memorable Time
For a great party addition include old films projected at the venue as guests mingle and dine. You can also hire individuals who look like Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, or Audrey Hepburn to interact with guests. Be sure to have a marquee board announcing the party and a red carpet at the entrance!
Other special touches could include Oscar-worthy invitations, a champagne fountain, and candy bars with wrappers that depict scenes from old movies. If it’s an adult party, stock the bar and feature old-time drinks such as Manhattans and Old Fashions.
