Lights, camera, action! Oscars weekend is here, are you ready to watch the swanky awards show in style? Time to gather up your friends, mark those Oscars 2018 ballots (I’m hoping for Molly’s Game for best adapted screenplay!) and grab copious amounts of popcorn. Read on for four Oscars viewing part ideas that will make your get together one to remember!
1. Details are everything
Never overlook the details. I chose to go with a black, white and red + sparkles theme, keeping in mind with the glitz and glam of Hollywood and cinema. Even simple touches such as the paper popcorn ‘cinema’ holders or the glitzy wine glasses, your Oscars party guests will appreciate the details, even if they weren’t expecting it.
The black and white cookies are a nod to some of the best dressed fashionistas on the red carpet… who can forget Julia Roberts’ black and white dress she wore the year she won for best actress? Plus I also love how these cookies make me think of penguin suits, aka tuxedos.
2. Ballots at the ready
Make sure your party guests are interacting with the show and other friends with some fun Oscars printable ballots. Whether you’ve seen all the best pictures nominees or not, it makes for a fun little competition amongst party goers, and you can up the stakes with a few prizes such as bottles of wine or $5 gift cards.
3. Pop, fizz, clink
Serve your guests some mighty fine drink options including vino and bubbly rose. I love doing the canned sparkling rose at parties because it’s easy to drink and a no hassle mess. You can also mix up some fab drinks based off of different Hollywood classics, such as a shaken, not stirred martini a la James Bond. I always have both red and white wine on hand for the wine drinkers. Fun, sparkly glasses make it that much more fun to drink!
4. Get home safely with Uber
No need for a party foul, or best picture mishap from last year’s show. Gift your party guests the gift of Uber gift cards to make sure they get home safely after a night of drinks, revelry and Oscars viewing. Let’s be honest, it’s just not worth it to drive after consuming a(n) alcoholic beverage, so play it safe and use Uber to get home safely. Not only does offering my party guests an Uber gift card gives me peace of mind, but it also ensures their safety all night long!
Cheers to another successful Oscars! Take the weekend to catch up on those Oscar noms and grab a glass of bubbly or vino to accompany the viewing. Happy Oscars watching, y’all!
