Vanessa Hudgens may be known all over the world as an actress and singer, but among friends, she is also considered the queen of party planning. Among her group of friends, she has developed a reputation for throwing iconic parties, with everything from sound cures to live bands. Although most people never get to participate in the Musical High School student’s famous parties, she gave lots of tips on how you can make a party a resounding success.
Vanessa Hudgens’ house is always a great party spot
Hudgens parties have one thing in common: a great venue. Anyone who saw her house tour on Architectural Digest can attest that she had a beautiful space for past parties. The Knight Before Christmas star hosted many parties at her beautiful home in Los Feliz before selling it this year. Undoubtedly, the house’s extensive pool area, secret gardens and more served as a great venue for his famous parties. Considering her new home is more than twice the size of her previous one, more parties are undoubtedly in her future.

Another rule of thumb Hudgens follows when planning a party is to always have a great theme. Despite throwing a Halloween party every year, the “Sneakernight” singer always makes sure she has something new up her sleeve. For example, in 2016, she threw a New Orleans-themed party. The party boasted everything from an apothecary to freshly made beignets.

“That year, I went alcohol-free,” Hudgens told NYLON of the party. “I invited a lot of people. But it was iconic.” Getting the mood right is essential for Hudgens, no matter what theme she takes. In fact, creating the right atmosphere is one of Hudgens’ top priorities when she’s throwing a party.
“There’s nothing that infuriates me more than when I’m ready to take down, and then I show up somewhere and it’s not the vibe,” Hudgens shared. “If it were up to me, every club would be an underground rave with lasers and smoke machines and just vibes, and it’s dark, and you really can’t see anyone.”
Hudgens elevates the party mood by investing in equipment
Lasers and smoke machines seem to be a way for Hudgens to create a vibe at his own parties as well. In 2018, she was The Late Late Show with James Corden and shared that she actually owned several of these machines. According to the “Say OK” singer, they are “investments you need to make for the future of your party”. At the time, Hudgens was planning to break down the machines for his Tiki Rave Swim Night.

What is Tiki Rave Swim Night, you ask? In addition to the smoke machines and laser machines, Hudgens also heated his pool to 100 degrees, “so it’s like a bath.” She also served her guest many tropical drinks. And while themed costumes were encouraged, Hudgens insisted that guests could wear whatever they wanted to the party. Clearly, Hudgens is serious about party planning. We’re sure her fans can’t wait to see pictures of whatever theme she decides on this year.
