    DIY Oscars Party

    December 21, 2016

    Roll out that red carpet… Because it’s time for the Oscar’s! Whether you’re dressing to the nines or staying casual for the night, you can’t go wrong with quality time and good laughs with friends as well as some delicious foods and drinks.


    Decorations

    First things first, creating your own candy bar is a must. No one goes to the movies without buying candy, so you shouldn’t go to an Oscars party without candy. Make sure to decorate an exciting table that allows guests to pick-up popcorn and any of your favorite candy such Gummy Bears, Twizzlers, Milk Duds, Raisinettes, etc. For some help check out Celebrations At Home or Fancy Pants Weddings

    Next, bringing to life a photo booth can allow guests to have fun and create memories for a lifetime. It’s simple! Go to the party store and grab some streamers, giant balloons and some fun glasses, hats and boas. Oh and don’t forget to say cheese!

    Entertainment

    Since it’s a viewing party, entertainment is the easiest part as a host. Before your guest enter make sure you find printable ballots that you can have your guest fill out their predictions before the awards starts… this will bring a little excitement to the night.

    For some printable 2016 Oscar Ballots and Oscar Bingo Cards check out Etsy.

    Now, if that isn’t enough excitement for you and your guest. Another great idea would be creating your own Oscar bingo. It’s the perfect way to keep your guest engaged during an Oscar viewing party!

     

    Food and Drinks

    Lastly, you can’t forget about the delicious appetizers, entrees, cocktails and dessert! To start off, you should make sure to have amazing appetizers for your guest. To make it easy on yourself, just set out a few options such as Chips and Guacamole, Shrimp and Cocktail Sauce or even a colorful cheese tray.

    As for entrees and cocktails, make sure to have enough options for your guest! Some great ideas would be Burger Sliders, Grilled Chicken Tenders, or you could carry in some delicious pizza bread. Cocktails having champagne is must. If you want to do something exciting check out ChowHound for some great, elegant drinks ideas.

    Don’t forget your dessert can always be your candy bar. But if you’re a dessert lover like me… you can always go the extra mile and have some classic chocolate chip cookies or even some yummy fruity chocolate covered strawberries.

    Now don’t forget you’re at the theater so put that phone away and have a great night.
