The biggest party of the year happens this weekend, and I am filled with excitement. I’m attending my first Oscar viewing party here in New York (sounds fancy right)! I think I might bring out the tutu that I bought last summer, and never wore, for this occasion.
But it had me thinking…maybe I should host an Oscar viewing party next year? Then I immediately went into planning mood. Where would I have it? What would I serve? How would I decorate? Would you come?
So I’m getting ready a little early and creating a list of things you and I need to host the best Oscar party ever…in life!
Invite all your favorite fly people.
Duh! You should only invite people you enjoy being around and most importantly people who really care about the Oscars, what the glam girls are wearing…or will at least crack really funny Kevin Hart-ish jokes while you all watch. No Debbie Downers on Oscar night! The people at your party should be fun, socially addicted and photo friendly. That girl who is against selfies or duck faces can’t sit with us!
Choose the right venue.
The next question you should ask yourself is, “Do I have enough space in my home to host a party?” And you really have to be realistic and compare the amount of comfortable seating and lounging space versus the numbers of folks on your guest list. Here’s where you make hard decisions on whether you should go hard or go home–literally. In many cities you can find a Groupon for hotel stays. Perhaps turn the evening into an intimate girls night in?!
I personally think that indulging in libations at least once a day keeps the stress away, but who am I. For your Oscar party you are going to need a marvelous Oscar themed cocktail list. Rich & Famous, Glamour Shot, Sweet & Vicious, The Lady & The Gentleman–Baileys has the best selection of party inspired recipes!
Hollywood themed party decor.
The perfect decor for your Oscar themed party should included everything you would find at the theater and in Hollywood. Popcorn, gold stars, film strips, disposable cameras…go overboard with your decor, this is the time to be extra.
Rich & Famous Treats.
The last element to your perfect most talked about Oscar party are the treats. Whether you are planning a sit down dinner, or light and breezy house party you have to have Oscar-inspired treats. From delish statue cookies, to savory tuxedo carved chocolate covered strawberries–your guests will be beyond impressed with your efforts!
So there you have it…everything we need to create the ultimate Oscar party. Off to planning for 2015 I go!
