Self-isolation and social distancing doesn’t mean we can’t have parties. Lots of people are holding online parties using zoom, skype and other online platforms. And you can still dress up!

Hollywood Parties

You've got a lot of scope with a Hollywood party. You could ask people to come as their favourite movie character or actor, or you could specify a movie genre (action, musical, western, chick flick) or era (silent movies, black & white, talkies, colour, etc).

Hollywood Party Costumes

  • Costume Box – Thousands of Fancy Dress costumes for adults and kids for all occasions. Most costumes dispatched within 24 hours. All costumes displayed are in stock. See their Hollywood costumes and accessories.
  • Costumes.com.au is based in Melbourne and delivers costumes and accessories (including shoes, hats, wigs, party supplies and more) with flat rate delivery Australia-wide. Options for same day to Melbourne metro, order online and pick up from their warehouse in Kilsyth, Victoria.

Hollywood Party Products & Decorations

Entrance is everything, be sure to have a red carpet and ask your guests to strike a pose for the camera as they arrive. Hire or make your own arch for guests to pose under. Wind fairy lights around it for a sparkle effect. For elegance, stick to red, gold, black and silver and light some candles. For a cheesy Hollywood party, decorate with real or fake palm trees.

  • Costumebox – originally a costume store now has an extensive party shopwith decorations, tableware, party invitations, balloons, cake supplies and more, where you can shop by theme, occasion, colour.

Hollywood Food Ideas

  • Your food should be as glamorous as your theme. For toasts, martinis, sparkling juice or champagne is a Hollywood must.
  • Finger food works best with this theme, such as cheese platters, olives, dips, fruit kebabs and mini sandwiches.
  • Bite size desserts include chocolate-dipped strawberries, profiteroles and mini-tarts.
  • If you're having a cake, make it dark chocolate with real or edible red roses to decorate.

Hollywood Party Ideas


  • For wilder parties, young Hollywood is the most obvious choice. Think Paris Hilton, diva-antics and a fluffy white dog for your handbag.
  • Another option is famous Hollywood break-ups. Ask guests to dress as their favourite couples from the past. These can be as zany as Michael Jackson and Elizabeth Taylor or as A-list as Brad and Jen.
  • Pick a blockbuster and have everyone dress as their favourite character. Choose one with an interesting wardrobe such as Moulin Rouge or Indiana Jones.


  • Having a prize for the best dressed can encourage people to find a costume.
  • Alternately you could stage your own Academy Awards and give prizes for Best Actor/Actress.
  • Have an autograph book for guests to sign.
