This Sunday is the 88th Academy Awards, better known as the Oscars. A night for Hollywood to dress up and get together to honor each other. Let’s not leave all the fun to them, throw an Oscars party for yourself and your friends! Although watching the Oscars can sometimes be a bit of a pain due to the length of the show, bad jokes from the host, or ridiculous thank-you speeches, it’s still fun to see who wins, even if you haven’t watched any of the movies yourself.
I’ve put together a few great ideas for Oscars parties thanks to some others around blog-land, check them out below.
Pizzazzerie’s post on Oscar party decor and activities will definitely get your party started in the right direction with sources for decorations and printables for ballots and bingo!
Hostess with the Mostess featured this PJs and Pearls Oscars Party which is such a cute theme. It’s great for all of you east coasters that have to stay up late just to see who wins. Because you’re already in your pjs just head to bed once the show is over. I really love the black and white color scheme, it’s very chic, and why not wear fancy jewelry, all the stars do.
Here’s another Oscars bingo game from Julie Blanner. I like this one because it gets you looking for all those subtle things that usually happen throughout the night like photo bombs and possible wardrobe malfunctions.
If you don’t feel like putting an entire party together, but still want to celebrate, try making your own candy and popcorn bar on your coffee table similar to this set up from Kara’s Party Ideas. I love the idea of movie theater candy at home, and the movies aren’t complete without popcorn.
So will you be watching the Oscars this weekend? Don’t you think eating candy would make watching them so much better? This weekend we’re hosting a going away party so I’ll be sure to take lots of pictures and post about it soon. Our move is quickly approaching and I’m dreading saying good bye to all of the great friends we’ve made over the last five years. There may be tears, yikes!
