Please join the old gang at (location) on (date) at (time) for one more dance!”
Make in an exclusive affair with these elegant and playful Ticket to the Stars invitations! They arrive fully personalized with all of your party details so all you have to do is send them out! Choose from gold or silver imprinting on classic black paper.
Open the door to a beautiful night out with friends when you send these Starry Night Window invitations! Each fully personalized invitation features a starry night sky that opens up to a custom text layout for a stunning, classy invitation guaranteed to intrigue guests!
Your class reunion party ideas are creating a red carpet event, and guests should dress the part! Ask them to wear their best evening wear. Glitz, glitter, and glamour are the theme of the night for ladies, while gentlemen should arrive in black tie.
The Hollywood Star theme decoration kit is a sure show-stopper! This collection of star-studded decorations includes a larger than life Midnight Star Walkthrough which stands a full ten and half feet high and sparkles with light. Add towering columns of balloons and lights to create an amazing backdrop to the main event!
Choose metallic corrugated paper in your school colors to line the walls. The metallic sheen on this distinctive decor is a perfect way to add sizzle to your class reunion party ideas!
Position a lighted Hollywood marquee in a prominent spot on one wall. Use the included letters to spell out “Welcome (School), Class of (year)!” Set the stage for unique class reunion party photographs by posing for pictures in front of this personalized Marquee! Another perfect spot for pictures can be found beneath the Blockbuster Premier Arch. This towering archway puts off a dazzling light display and measures more than eight feet wide and eight feet tall.
Even balloons can be glamorous when you add this star balloon drop to your high-class event as one of the popular class reunion party ideas. Fill this net with balloons, and then use the clip and release to create a shower of floaty, elegant balloons at the grand finale.
Create a dazzling starry sky with metallic stars and swirls drifting and diving from the ceiling. These sparkling accents are an animated addition to any star-studded event! Include 3D silver stars to complete your ceiling-scape.
Cover the tables with a solid color table cover in your school’s colors, or choose black to match your Hollywood theme. Dress each table with a Hollywood film centerpiece to add just the right touch. Complete the look with stars confetti scattered about.
Show attention to every detail when you include the star attraction ensemble instead of plain plates and napkins. You’ll feel like a star when you serve guests on these enchanting plates! Cutlery, napkins, and cups are available for a fully coordinated effect. Add a touch of class with Tinsel town charleston glasses instead of paper cups.
Class Reuion Party Ideas for Food
Offer an amazing selection of food and drinks with these scrumptious class reunion party ideas!
Raise a toast to your former classmates with one of these beverages!
Sparkling juices â�� Sparkling grape or apple juice will look just as appealing as champagne but without the alcohol, so tip a glass of this party favorite instead!
Punch â�� Freeze slices of lemon or lime, then add them to a punch bowl full of fruit punch and seltzer for a creative presentation of an old standby.
Soft drinks â�� You can go wrong with canned soft drinks. Be sure to set up a recycling box to make your party earth friendly!
All of that dancing is sure to build up quite an appetite, so fill up on one of these delicious class reunion party ideas!
Fruit tray â�� Pile trays high with melon balls, sliced apples and kiwi, peaches, and grapes for a healthy snack that guests are sure to love. Blend an 8 ounce bar of cream cheese with 7 ounces of marshmallow cream for an incredible fruit dip that is sure to disappear! Serve well chilled on the side.
Cheese and crackers â�� Provide bite-sized slices of assorted cheeses on a tray with crackers for a quick snack. Cheddar, Monterey, mozzarella, and jalapeno jack are great choices, and you can include spreadable tub versions as well. Offer both butter and wheat crackers to meet nearly any preference.
Finger sandwiches â�� An array of finger foods on a platter will be an instant hit! Trim the crust off of sandwiches and quarter them before stacking them on the tray to be served. Include chicken salad, cucumber and watercress, pimento cheese, and ham and cheese for a nice variety. Chicken salad can be served in individual phyllo cups for a creative variation.
Cocktail wieners â�� Warm these mini sausages in a crock pot with equal amounts of cocktail sauce and grape jelly and they’ll disappear faster than you can refill them!
Shrimp â�� Serve shrimp with cocktail sauce to add a touch of elegance to your buffet.
You can’t celebrate a class reunion without cake! One of these desserts is sure to hit the spot.
Take a photo of the old school and scan it onto an edible wafer. Bake a sheet cake and cover it in white icing, then carefully transfer the wafer to the cake. Write your school name and your class on the cake before adding a border. This is the ultimate class reunion party cake, and it couldn’t be easier!
Keep dessert simple by provide cupcakes for everyone. Easy to eat while mingling, they’re a great addition to any party! Sprinkle white cupcakes with edible gold or silver glitter (available with cake decorating supplies) and they’ll perfectly compliment your glamorous theme!
Decorate a sheet cake with your high school mascot in bright, bold colors. Write “Welcome back, (School) class of (year)!” across the front.
Hand out Hollywood Awards to each guest, or in the case of extremely large class reunions, set out boxes to vote for superlatives and give the winners the awards! Some ideas for reunion superlatives include “most changed,” “least changed,” “most famous,” “best career move,” and “biggest overall surprise.”
Everyone will appreciate clapboard mint tins, so hand these out at large events to ensure that everyone goes home with a prize!
Thank You Notes
Thank everyone for attending with red carpet photos from the big event! Have a photographer set up in front of your best Hollywood scenery to take pictures of guests. Have each photo printed with the occasion and the date before mailing them. This great way to savor the memories will be one of the most popular class reunion party ideas of the night!
