Hosting an Oscar Viewing Party tomorrow? Check out these 9 great ideas to ensure your party is an event everyone remembers. With great food, drinks, decorations, and games, you’re sure to have the time of your life.
This is a fancy event! Be sure to offer your guests a variety of bubbly cocktails like Mimosas or Orange-Cherry Champagne Cocktails. You can even get over zealous and offer a bar with a variety of bubbly cocktails!
Invite the Paparazzi
Have a few of your friends help you take photos of guests as they arrive. Have a little fun with this; get up-close-and-personal with your guests… maybe even ask them, “Who are you wearing tonight”?
Place Your Bets
Spice things up by placing bets on the winner of each category. Guests can bet on their own accord or you can offer prizes for the winner with the most correct guesses.
Serve Mouth-Watering Finger Foods
Make things easier on yourself by calling this a pot-luck. Guests can make a variety of dishes, which will help you create a nice spread. Serve whatever main course you desire, but make sure you have a few tasty finger foods while people wait. My personal favorites are Mini Lasagna Bites, Bacon-Wrapped Potatoes, and Fried Mozzarella.
Offer Cute Party Favors
Have cute Oscar themed gifts and props for guests to take home as a memory of this wonderful event!
Don’t Skimp on the Popcorn
If you have an air-popcorn popper, take the time to make a lot of popcorn (and I mean a LOT). The air-popped kind is significantly better in my opinion, so I say go for that. Serve the popcorn in cute popcorn bags or bowls like in the photos below.
Play Red Carpet Bingo
Use this FREE printable download to play bingo during the Oscars! The download offers pre-made bingo boards and blank ones for the more creative types. Make sure you have fun prizes for a few winners.
Set a Stylin’ Dress Code
When you plan the event, make sure you tell your guests to dress their best for this elegant soiree! You can find some great ideas from POPSUGAR.
Decorate for the Stars
Most importantly, make sure your decorations scream “Red Carpet”. You can find great ideas from this Pinterest board, download a variety of printables, or get inspired from the photos below.
