Hollywood Movie Premiere Party
by Annie Sheehan
This Hollywood Movie Premiere party was for my 11th birthday, but some of my friends were already 12. We sent out invitations in fancy lettering on star covered pieces of papers. We included a pair of cheap sunglasses that you can get at party stores with it.
The invitation said that there would be tons of paparazzi everywhere, so you should dress up and wear the sunglasses we included because the flashes of the cameras would be everywhere!
I didn't think any of my friends would go for the dressing up, but they all did! Everyone looked fabulous!
We had a red carpet leading up to my door, then on the door were silver and gold stars with everybody's names on them, and we had silver and gold streamers and glittery stuff! Everyone loved finding their name, and at the end they got to take it home!
My older brother also wore a suit and tie, and had the video camera as he interviewed each girl as she came in.
Once everybody was there, we played some top songs and everyone was singing at the top of their lungs and jumping up and down.
After that, my mom bought a black tablecloth with gold and silver stars all over it and some plastic champagne glasses. We poured lemonade into it and we got to be all fancy.
We also bought the big bags of popcorn chicken and bagel bites and bagel dogs from Costco as our fingers foods. Instead of a cake, because my parents didn't want mess in the basement, my mom made star shaped butter cookies and chocolate chip bars. Everybody got to have two or three, and it was fine that we had that instead of cake.
My mom grouped us into teams and gave each team post its and a marker. She then gave us Hollywood and movie trivia questions, and we tried to get it right. We had to yell ding after we wrote it down, and then my mom checked our answer to see if it was right! It was so much fun!
After that, we all settled down for our movie premiere- the Hairspray from a long time ago. (The one that your parents went to see together when they were teens.) It was great because everyone sat down and watched it because no one had seen it before. And, everyone thought it was really good!
Our goody bags were the sunglasses, and an initial magnet and pad of paper from Old Navy that my mom got for like a dollar each.
This party was fun, cheap, and easy! All of my friends loved it so much that one of them did it for her birthday party! I had a blast!
