Tuesday’s announcement of nominations for the 84th annual Academy Awards has made us hungry to host an Oscars party. Feeling the same way? The big night is Sunday, February 26th– so get those invitations in the mail soon!
First things first – the guest list. You’ll want to make sure to invite plenty of friends & family (the more, the merrier!) and that you have enough festive serving trays for the occasion. As a general rule, don’t invite too many people – otherwise not everyone will have a view of all the action.
Of course, you could always upgrade to a bigger flatscreen. Feeling adventurous? Have guests dress up as characters from their favorite films!
You’ll also want to get started putting together the perfect playlist of classic movie tunes. Get yourself a docking station with killer speakers if you don’t have one already, then start downloading.
Okay, now on to the most important part: The food! Why not serve up some delicious treats inspired by past award-winning films? For example, try Forrest Gump Chocolates or Bubba Gump Shrimp Satay. Mix up Casablanca Cocktails or put the kettle on for The King’s Speech Tea. Once you’ve got these basics covered, sit back and let the debates over the winners begin!
