To celebrate our premiere of Grisly Grisell, we hosted an Old Hollywood Glamour Party. We had a blast and our audience was quite impressed with our party throwing abilities. If you are a moviemaker you can throw this sort of party for your next red carpet premiere.
Premieres are usually in the evening, but a matinee can be a huge success as well. Feel free to adapt to your own needs but for reference, our Old Hollywood Glamour Party itinerary looked like this:
We went with free admission and made a beautiful donations can. Between donations and our silent auction, we made more money at the premiere than selling tickets would have brought in. We highly recommend free admission and passing the hat.
Close silent auction items every half hour of the party by making an announcement 10 minutes before closing each item, notifying your guests that this is their last chance to make sure they still have the highest bid. This gets more bids on your items. I highly recommend bringing your director's megaphone so that everyone can hear you.
Plan to serve hor d'oeuvres and cake to celebrate your accomplishment and to thank your guests for coming. You don't need to plan a whole meal for the afterparty, just a little something. If you show your movie at 6:30, chances are most people have already eaten dinner, so hor d'oeuvres or appetizers are perfect!
At the after-party, we ordered one appetizer per table and guests ordered their own drinks and food in addition to what we provided. The restaurant allowed us to serve a Costco cake during the party with our own supplies.
As a premiere after party is a little bit like a wedding reception, you want everything to be very elegant and nice. A cake with the movie title on it is a perfect accent to this party.
Give your teenagers a slower childhood like the ones their grandparents enjoyed with an afternoon tea party aided by the peaceful and beautiful music provided by Tea Time with Teen Day.

Think "glamour" when you decorate for your Old Hollywood Glamour Party. Red, gold, and black should dominate your decorating colors.
Beautiful centerpiece bouquets, an elaborate Eiffel Tower Ostrich Plume, even a glitzy donation box, will make your party pop with excitement.
Don't forget to encourage your guests to wear formal attire.
Big Hollywood premieres are always formal affairs. We wore formal attire to be sure our guests who dressed up felt comfortable, but most people wore their Sunday best with a few wearing nice casual clothes.
You can make a beautiful and elegant popcorn centerpiece for your old Hollywood glamour party premiere with:
Soak the oasis foam in a sink full of cold water. Once they are fully submerged, they are ready for the arrangement. You will want to start this at least 30 minutes before you arrange the flowers because it takes a while for the foam to absorb the water.
Once your foams are ready, place them in the popcorn boxes. Cut them to make them fill the entire bottom of the boxes. Arrange your flowers into the foam.
When setting your table, place down the jute placemat, place the star on top, then place the flower arrangement on top of that. Scatter the glitter all over the centerpiece.
Wow! your guests with an ostrich feather Eiffel Tower. For this decoration, you will need:
Arrange the feathers in the bouquet holder and place it in the vase. Tah-dah! Eiffel Tower ostrich feather decoration! Place somewhere prominent in your venue for showing the movie (like next to the donation box).
Roll out the red carpet to really give your party that certain Hollywood feel. Carpet tape is a fantastic way of adhering your carpet to the ground so that it doesn't bunch up or trip anyone.
Of course, the highlight of your Old Hollywood Glamour Party premiere will be showing your movie.
Host a silent auction for your guests during the party. Items could include locally donated items as well as props and costumes from your movie.
Ask businesses for donations about 2 weeks before the event. That gives them more time to decide which items to donate and if they are able to donate.
Country swing dancing is popular in our town so we danced at the after party. Although you don't need to insist on dancing, provide a dance floor and music for guests who like to dance.
Conveniently, there was a juke box at our venue so we just put someone in charge of it and the music was loud enough for all of the guests to enjoy. Even the waitress was dancing and told us we had great music taste!

Another special component that we added to our party was giving the rose bouquets to special guests to take home. This is a very nice gesture to give to someone special!
