Craft:  Maybe doing their hand prints in cement (plaster) like Hollywood. Maybe decorating photo frames. Stringing bead necklaces or candy necklaces made from any candy with holes. 

Food/Table ideas:  The table should be set very formal with place cards and flowers. Maybe a black and white table theme would look nice.    At the beginning of the party maids carry around trays of appetizers and trays of sparkling cider in champagne glasses offering them to the guests.  Champagne glasses with sugared rims, appetizer type items that are elegant but kid friendly!   Posing and photo ideas  Have a bouquet of balloons at the end of the runway. When the model gets to the end and turns around the balloons will be behind her for a perfect photo background.  Take a roll of black and white photos. 

Extra cute ideas for this theme:  Have someone outside photographing the stars as they arrive with a big camera!  The guests walk up the red carpet and show their ticket to be admitted. Dad wearing a tuxedo checks the guest list or takes their ticket. \*Using a refrigerator box you can create a giant popcorn box for a giant prop.  Paint red and white vertical stripes.  Stuff the bottom with crumpled newspaper to fill the box almost full.  Top it off with giant popcorn made by tying balloons together (two white plus one butter yellow).  It looks like giant popcorn.    

Favors:  definitely lipstick, autograph books, their hand print made in the plaster, star shaped sunglasses, photos, their portfolio, HUGE jeweled rings (available from novelty companies.  The girls could be picked up by the limo and delivered to the party.
