Birthday Party Ideas For Creating an Easy Movie Premier Party

Feeling a bit burned out and uninspired, but have a child with an upcoming birthday? Here’s an idea to please all concerned. Delegate – the key to your sanity. Let older siblings do the decorating or hire teenagers to glam it up.

BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS – SETTING THE SCENE HOLLYWOOD STYLE

Ultimately, you’ll want to bring a little Hollywood to your home. Keep it simple and cheap, but still fun and exciting. Use lots of streamers, balloons, and curling ribbons. Hang movie posters and serve simple munchies.

Lay a red carpet made from red plastic disposable tablecloths on your walkway for guests to gain entrance to the party. Rope off designated walkway from the paparazzi with balloons attached to sticks.

BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS – A STAR IS BORN

As guests arrive, escort them to an area to memorialize their stardom. Have them decorate large silver stars cut from posterboard with glitter. Teenagers may assist guests in tracing their hands onto their star and write their name above their imprints. Tape the stars to the “red carpet” that runs into the movie premier room. Place a gold star at the entrance with the birthday child’s name and handprints.

BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS – WALKING THE RED CARPET

Have drama students, posing as the paparazzi, equipped with cameras and make-shift microphones, along the red carpet walkway. Have them try to interview guests and snap candid photos as guests arrive all dressed up in Hollywood glitz and glitter.

BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS – GLAM IT UP!

As an alternative, you could have older siblings or hired teenagers glam up your guests. Create a glam station equipped with fun dresses, hats, boas, make-up, purses, jewelry, etc. To keep the cost down, get all your dress-up gear from thrift shops. While everyone is getting ready, other teenagers could lay out the red carpet and stars on the walkway to prepare for your A-list guests to walk the red carpet to the movie room.

BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS – SHOW TIME

Have someone dressed in a suit, individually escort guests down the red carpet, while someone else take photos.

Once everyone has been seated, play the movie of your child’s choice. Have someone serve popcorn to your guests while watching the movie or rent a popcorn wagon and have someone hand out the popcorn.

BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS – CURTAIN CALL

After the movie is over, serve cake and ice cream and open the presents. Then send your little stars home with a clean popcorn bag filled with Hollywood-related party favors like theme stickers, a bag of microwave popcorn, movie gift certificate, temporary tattoos, sunglasses, etc.
