Old Hollywood Glamour

Hollywood glam draws its inspiration from the “Golden Age” of Hollywood during the 1930’s. Old Hollywood glam featured the luxury of Hollywood with its high-end finishes at its peak. 

Also called Hollywood Regency, this decor style combines Art Deco design with a modern twist. Hollywood Glam themes feather a touch of charm, sophistication and a dash of decadence all throughout. 

Throwing a Hollywood glam theme party is a tall order. Get ready to be dolled up. Dress your venue in glitz and glamor and spend a fabulous evening partying with friends and family.

Dress Up the Decor

Decorate your party venue with these old Hollywood decor design guides and you’re halfway done with setting the tone for your Hollywood theme party.

We can guarantee you this: decorating for an old Hollywood glam party will be a blast! Here are some old Hollywood theme decoration ideas for your party that’s sure to draw your guests’ attention.

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 or spandex chair covers overlaid with some red/silver chair bands or gold and silver chair sashes to mimic our mock up above. You can also opt for some sequin chair caps if you already have some presentable chairs that need minimal design. 

Finish your tablescapes with elegant gold charger plates, printed menus, and black napkins. You can choose from a ton of different fabric options for your linen napkins. Match your linen napkins to your tablecloth and centerpiece decor for a more put together look.

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.
