Have you ever been to one or hosted one? I was invited to one by a friend last year but was in that awful, first trimester, so tired and nauseous that I could hardly get through the day. The thought of trying to get dressed fancy and go to a party was too much! BUT, I really wished that I had gone and it sounded like an amazing party! She even did the red carpet leading up to her entry with “paparazzi” to take your picture while you struck a pose.
Since the Oscars are coming up this Sunday, February 27th (8/5P) on ABC, I thought it would be fun to brainstorm about throwing your own Oscar party!
First, have you seen all the movies that are up for a nomination? You can go here to get the complete list. And see how many of the movies you can see between now and Sunday – ready, go!
Now, we just need to figure out decorations, drinks, food and any additional entertainment!
Decorations: I talked about the “red carpet”, which you can use a plastic red tablecloth and then maybe some gold stars along the “carpet” or hanging from above. If you have a friend to photograph that will definitely set the mood.
The Oscars website has a great resource from what to serve to how to engage your party goers, think that the Oscar ballots are a must!
Black Swan: to be a touch ironic – Marble Cake
Inception: Three Kings Cake – your choice of what to “hide inside”
The King’s Speech: Bangers & Mash
The Social Network: Mini-pizzas
Winter’s Bone: Squirrel “chicken” wings
Here is a great resource for all things Oscar party!
