And the Winner is……..


The challenge: To transform a dull cafeteria area into a theater were our young graduates could feel like celebrities. Budget was also a challenge. They had a huge space with no character…

The Client: Fifth graders celebrating going into middle school

The Team: Loving mothers and teachers who raised money through bake sales, hat days and the now popular duck sales. These team of ladies helped from decorations, food and celebrated with their young.

The Theme: “An award ceremony, Oscar night style, we want them to feel like Hollywood super stars….” they asked.

The Reward: These moms danced away and to hear a child scream: “awesome” was their best reward!

Check out some pictures:

Every child had a tile with their name on it like in Hollywood Blvd.

At the end, they all could take their star home.

Trophies for each category: Aspiring musician, Best acting performance, The scientist award, athlete of the year…

They were called by names, and  on a big screen featured a Power point/video presentation. We took pictures of each child and arranged categories. When they were called, their fans screamed and clapped… At the end of the award ceremony, the screen slowly went up, revealing the DJ. They danced and did not seem to get tired!

At the back, a cool backdrop with changing color led lights…

“And the winner for Aspiring Musician is  …….”   The kids wore Blu Tshirts with the Oscar style trophies in front, on the back, on a reel, the logos of some of the sponsors who made their celebration possible…. The Tshirts created a uniform look. They were awarded bags in their classrooms, hollywood style which included the T-shirt, a VIP Pass for a variety of activities we had prepared for them, a disposable camera to take memory pics, a book with inspirational farewell messages from teachers that they could use to get autographs from other friend/celebrities.

No Hollywood style party would be complete without a red carpet. Kids came in through an all black hallway, only illuminated by LED lights hanging from the ceiling…

I will be posting more pictures as they keep coming in from the proud moms…. I am wishing for one from the back wall with the Hollywood sign banner and some of the side walls covered in Red Fabric and VIP signs on the doors.

For Fun decoration ideas and themed parties…
