This Sunday I am hosting my very first Oscar party. I am not sure why it has taken me so long to come up with another excuse to host a party, but you know what they say, better late than never. It is not going to be a huge gathering, just some close friends, champagne and popcorn…with a few special details of course! It’s not too late, you can have one too. Here are a few different party ideas.
Create a Theme, Make it Fun! I love Lauren Conrad’s PJ’s and Pearls Theme.
Even better, if you are getting together to watch the red carpet. Play Red Carpet Bingo. Print cards for your guests here.
Drink Champagne. heck, why not have a Mimosa Bar, I can’t think of a better excuse to indulge on a Sunday afternoon/evening.
or create a signature cocktail, like the Oscar Night Smash for your guests.
Include Some Friendly Competition. Have all of your gifts pick a winner in each category when they arrive. Keep a legend throughout the show and award the person with the most correct a prize. Good Housekeeping has an awesome free printable you can distribute to your guests.
Indulge in Delicious Food. Maybe you want to go with a specific theme like this one from catch my party.
or you can even plan a menu based on each of the 9 films nominated for best picture.
I am thinking something a little more simple like a popcorn bar.
Most importantly, enjoy the excuse to spend time with your favorite people, I know I will!
And the award for best party host goes to…
