The Charlie's Angels actress hosted a fete for the holiday over the weekend, prompting neighbours to call the police to complain about the noise, TMZ reports.
Sources told the website that the officials spoke with Barrymore, who quickly fixed the situation.
In July, the actress was reported to be in talks to produce and potentially direct an adaptation of crime caper novel The Heist Society.
She previously helmed the 2009 film Whip It!, which starred Ellen Page and Kristen Wiig.
Earlier this year, Barrymore revealed that she she has many fond memories of filming her brief but memorable cameo in the original Scream film 15 years ago.
The actress is rumoured to be ready to settle down with boyfriend Will Kopelman.
