Hollywood themed 13th birthday party - anyone ANY ideas?!

Question: Hollywood themed 13th birthday party - anyone ANY ideas!?
Am in need of some help with my hollywood themed 13th birthday party!. I need help in the following areas mostly: drink, games, where to go to buy cheap tablewear (in UK only please!)
All other ideas greatly appreciated!.!.!. xWww@FoodAQ@Com

well I did this for a sweet 16!. Here is what I answered before!. Maybe you can get some ideas from it!.

I love this theme because we just did this!. I really can help you!. It well really really well!.

We had a dance and rented a hall but you can save money by looking for a recreation area in your area and checking your local parks, however in our area there were too many rules, so we had a hard time finding a hall!. The parks required security to be hired for teens and I live in the burbs in the midwest!. You have to ask if you can decorate and about the food!. A lot of places require you to use a caterer which can be expensive and wont even let you bring in your own cake, so you have ask!. We were not able to use tape only sticky tac and usually no one lets you use confetti!.

We hired a DJ!. It is 100 bucks an hour!. Make sure you ask if they supply lights and make sure they have a microphone!. They should have those 2 things and make your DJ a list of the songs you want played and dont forget to include an entrance song if there is one and happy birthday if you want that one!. Include group fun songs like electric slide or whatever is popular now!. We also listed a bunch of golden age hollywood songs!. We had those playing for the first half hour as guests arrived and mingled before the grand entrance!.
and they sell hollywood CDs also

Pick a day not around a holiday because a lot of people do family stuff around holidays and Sunday mornings are for church so avoids that!. also it is about 1/2 the price if you have your party on a Sunday evening compared to a saturday!. We rented a large, fancy hall for 500!.00 on Sunday for a party from 6-10!. That way all we had to do was serve appetizers and not a full meal, because also you have birthday cake in that time!. so that is enough food!.

Our appetizer experience:
We just had our sweet 16 and had to use a caterer in order to get the hall but you can make everything yourself!. We had 45 people!.

We ordered a fruit tray, cheese tray, veggie tray, taco dip and chips and silver dollar sandwich rolls!.

No one touchede the veggie tray!. The cheese tray was 1/3 eaten!. The taco tip went over great and had to be restocked twice, the fruit tray went over great, and the silver dollar rolls went over great!. They were ham, turkey and beef!. These are hand size and perfect and I saw the rolls for this at the grocery store!.

Anyway, so if I were you I would make a small cheese tray, make a double batch or taco dip, and have a good fruit tray and make the silver dollar rolls!.

These are all simple to put together!.

Taco Dip:
2 softened cream cheese!.
1 16oz sour cream
1 packet taco seasoning!.

Mix with mixer!. Put in bottom of a cookie sheet!. Top with shredded cheese, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes and green onions!. Use the cheese but you can altered the rest to your taste, maybe add black olives!. Make 2 of these!. Serve with tostitos scoops!.

Fruit bowl,!.
Whole pineppple into chunks!. Slice strawberries!. Add whole table grapes no seeds, add chunks of watermelon, and cut oranges in slices cut into triangles!. This is best made the night before so that the juices can all run together and stir before serving!.

Silver dollar rolls:
It is just silver dollar rolls that are made by the bakery in your grocery stor!. Buy shaved ham, turkey and beef in the deli cut american cheese into triangles!. You can put lettuce on them, ours did not have it!. t The ones that we had catered just had real butter on them and they had mayo and mustard packets on ice on the side!. You can make all this yourself the day before easily and our caterer delivered them to the hall the nigtht before our party and it was fine!.

You have to ask how much time they will give you extra to decorate before your actual event and if you will be charged extra for that!. Some bowling alleys have cheaper rooms to rent and you dont have to bowl, it is separate from that!. also some restaurants have party rooms, where you can decorate and dance but you order from their menu for your friends!. Probably cheaper than a hall!.

For invites you can buy the cheap ones from party cheap or get personalized hollywood ones from Handykane!.com as as stated above!. !.We titled ours Sixteen Candles!. Make sure you put on the invite the dress code!. We said black/white semi-formal for guestes and the birthday girl and her date wore formal gown and tux to stand out!. Usually only 1/2 the people you invite will be able to come, especially teens because a lot of people work and in the summer a lot of ppl go on family vacations!. So if you plan on 100, invite 150!.

For decorations to start off you have to have a sign in board!. A board your friends sign as they arrive!. We bought trifold prWww@FoodAQ@Com
