Oscar Party Invites by girlingearstudio, $13, etsy.com
Can’t wait to see your favorite movie stars at the Academy
Awards on Sunday night? Watching the Oscars is the perfect occasion to throw an
all-out fab fête. Invite over all your friends and gossip about the
best-dressed celebs and your must-see flicks over amazing appetizers. On Monday
morning, we’re betting everyone will nominate your get-together as the best
party of 2013!
Vote on your top
Pre-party, be sure to go online and print out a list of all
of the nominees for the major categories (Best Picture, Best Actor/Actress,
Best Director, Best Costume Design, etc.) before your guests arrive. That way,
you and your friends will be able to predict all of the winners. Nothing like a
little friendly competition!
Break out the finery
Ask your friends to attend your event dressed to the nines.
Bust out your dress-up box to add to the fun. We’re talking feather boas,
sunglasses at night, floor-length dresses, the whole deal. Snap pics to share
on FB and vote on Best Dressed.
No sit-down dinner required. Prepare a few tried-‘n’-true appetizers
for guests to snack on while watching the awards. Have everyone bring a little
something for a table full of mouth-watering snacks. Check out some recipes HERE. No time to cook? Pop up a huge bowl of popcorn and set
out an array of toppings (think: yummy herbs, melted butter and grated cheese)
We have a winner!
A few days before your big bash, head out to your local
dollar store and pick up a trophy. The person who correctly guesses the most
winning nominees is the big winner. We
bet they will gladly accept their award--no speech necessary!
