Host an Oscars Viewing Party: Decor & Activities!
So last week we covered cocktails and invitations for The Oscars, this week we’re talking about Academy Awards activities and decorations!
This year for the Oscars, I’m inviting some girlfriends over and fully indulging in all things red carpet, Hollywood glam, and of course – party sips and snacks! I thought many of you might be watching the Oscars and perhaps even having a little party of your own!
Oscar Party Decor Ideas
If you happen to have a solid red tablecloth (leftover from the holidays or Valentine’s), it would be a perfect time to whip it back out to dress your Oscars table! If not, solid black or even white will be fine, or you can just use your coffee table!
Next, set up a popcorn station with red and white striped popcorn tubs! I recently grabbed some from Target, but if you can’t find them, Amazon has some as well!
Prop up Director’s Clapboards among framed black and white pictures of famous movie stars! Use frames you already have around your house and print off the movie pictures!
Scatter your table with gold, red, or black foil stars like these gold metallic ones from ShinDigz! Confetti is an easy way to add pops of shine and color.
If you want a DIY confetti option, use a hole punch and some gold or red paper to create your own in seconds! Glittered paper from a craft store looks great when you punch out your own confetti!
If you’re feeling crafty, hang red tissue paper fans (or red tissue paper pom-poms) these from Shop Sweet Lulu and mixing them with large gold foiled stars!
I also ordered red/white striped candy cups and napkins from Shop Sweet Lulu to keep with the “movie” and popcorn theme!
Oscars Games & Activities
Now that you have invitations out, cocktail recipes ready, and lots of great decoration ideas – you need fun activities for guests while viewing The Academy Awards!
For Oscars activities, it’s all about fun ballots and bingo! Each year, I’ll update this post with the latest downloadable and printable Oscars game boards. Be sure to have prizes for the winners (candy or mini champagne bottles are perfect).
Stay tuned, there is more! We’ll be sharing some delicious OSCAR DESSERT RECIPES that you’ll want to make all year round so stay tuned!
