It’s time to roll out the red carpet!
On Sunday, Feb. 28, Hollywood will celebrate the brightest stars in the film industry during the 2016 Oscars. But celebrities shouldn’t be the only ones able to enjoy a night full of movie madness! Film buffs can also celebrate the 88th annual Academy Awards like an A-lister by throwing an award-winning bash of their own ... and here’s how:
Red Carpet Décor
Turn your home into a mini-Dolby Theatre by decorating your walls with Oscar-themed décor. From glamorous Academy Award-inspired banners to festive garland, your guests will feel like they’re walking through an Oscar wonderland.
Smile for the Camera
Once your guests arrive have them strut down a makeshift red carpet, which is where they can pose for the camera with picture-perfect photo booth props. You can make your own DIY props or you can opt to purchase the crowd-pleasing activity.
No Oscar viewing party is complete without a tasty treat. So, keep your partygoers happy with a belly full of five-star snacks throughout the night. Some fun and simple dishes we recommend are S’mores Popcorn, Pigs in a Blanket and a Swiss and Bacon dip that’ll have your guests chewing all night long.
Not everyone can go home a winner at the Oscars, but they can at your Academy Award party! Make your guests feel special by handing out snazzy superlative awards that celebrate each partygoer from your best-dressed guest to who correctly guessed the most Oscar winners. May we suggest a cupcake topped with an Oscar statuette as their prize?
Raise Your Glass
In honor of the 2016 Oscar, whip up a batch of Oscar-themed drinks that’ll leave your guests buzzing for the recipe! Whether it's a classic cocktail like The Old Hollywood or a tasty drink inspired by one of the Best Picture nominees, your night won't be complete without an award-winning drink.
