When talking about the Hollywood, the very first thing that comes to our mind is the red carpet during major awards’ night. You can look for local party supply store for red carpet for party and not the real deal because it would be very expensive.
If the party supply store doesn’t sell it, ask if they know someplace where you can rent one. If you can’t buy one as well as rent, you can go for a red cloth. You can buy a few meters of red cloth then cut it a meter wide then sew it to make it looks like it’s continuous.

Another important aspect of any event is the food. Whether it’s a BBQ party or a glamorous Hollywood inspired ones, your guests are still human and they will need to eat after all.
To keep the Hollywood feeling, you can also mimic the food that are being served in awards night. This would include finger food and non-greasy food, especially since your guests are all dressed up and serving messy food can be annoying.
