Many young children develop the optimistic view that they'll one day be famous. Watching all of her favorite movie stars walk the red carpets at premiers and the Oscars could drive her to take acting lessons or dress in dramatic outfits. Whether your daughter is starring in school plays, or just starring in your life, she deserves the fame and recognition a movie-star birthday party will give her. Here are some ways to host a bash perfect for your budding celebrity.
Discuss your daughter's favorite films and movie stars with her. Try and take inspiration from these famous faces and films for the party. It is best to organize the activities with her best-loved stars and films in mind so they will be all the more enjoyable. Lay out a list of the characters from these movies and use this list to play a game of charades. This way, the kids can get a chance to do a little acting.
Also, set aside costume details like sunglasses, feather boas or top hats at the party entrance that each guests can use for a dress up event, like walking down the red carpet. Don't forget to play your child's favorite film later in the evening.
When it comes to the decorations, look no further than these ideas. The essentials for creating that Hollywood look include a red carpet, which can be made with actual red carpet or even a red gymnastics mat. If neither of these are available, try using red yoga mats. Along the sides of the red carpet, you should set up a mock red velvet rope. You can make a rope with a velvet effect out of crepe paper. Hang this from the ceiling with string, or attach it to nearby walls. Add another great decoration by hanging a red paper fringe from the doorways to the party room for a classy entranceway.
Every girl is famous
If you are a do-it-yourself mom, go ahead and build your own walk of stars. The simple format is to take squares of construction paper, any color, and glue another piece in the shape of a star on top. On each star, write the names of every guest, and have the stars laminated. These stars will be party favors at the end of the night.
Don't forget your concession stand. Every movie theater has one, and your home can too. Design your dessert table as the concession stand, and give each guest coupons with which they can pay for treats. Keep the treats movie-oriented. Oreo's look similar to movie reels, popcorn is always acceptable, and your cake might feature the Hollywood sign.
