Looking for the perfect birthday party theme for your special preteen or teenage girl?
Consider all the fun and excitement she and her guests will have with a "Hollywood Diva" birthday party theme!
After selecting the date, take the time to make special invitations that match the theme.
Consider using a Hollywood Star with your special birthday diva's name on it, or something with lots of glitter. Just make sure it sparkles like Hollywood.
Next you will need to plan the menu. Decide if you want to serve a meal or just treats. Make sure the cake matches your theme. Again, those Hollywood stars would look great on the cake. Consider adding pretend jewels to give it that "wow" factor.
Other snacks can include cookies and cupcakes sprinkled with sugar or any sweet treat your birthday girl enjoys. Get the candy "confetti" that you can buy in the grocery store to decorate them with. And all divas love chips and dip!
There are so many wonderful decorating ideas that go along with this theme. Hang glittery stars from the ceiling or even outside on the trees.
If the party is in the evening, use lots of sparkly white lights. Decorate the walkway leading to your front door with a look-alike red carpet, or line the walk with more Hollywood stars, using the names of each guest on each star.
Either way, your guests will feel special. Especially if you find someone to open the car door and escort them to the walkway and have someone snapping photographs as they approach the door. Greet them at the door with over-the-top sunglasses and a brightly colored feathered boa and a pretty plastic glass of punch.
Instead of games, arrange to let the girls enjoy a night of fun spa treatments. Give them manicures and pedicures and facials.
You can go all out and hire professionals to come to your home, or simply ask a few friends or family members to help out. The girls will love it, either way.
Use little clutch handbags for your party favors and fill them with jeweled plastic rings, pretty beaded necklaces, fingernail polish, lip gloss and perfume. And of course all divas love bubble bath! Enjoy the party, and later feel free to treat yourself to a real spa day.
You deserve it, Mom!
