Hosting an Oscar Party at Home

It’s time to roll out the red carpet and celebrate the glitz and glamour of Hollywood’s biggest night. Instead of simply tuning in this year, why not have your own fun and host friends for an Oscar party?  

With the right planning and a touch of creativity, you can impress your guests with an unforgettable evening filled with delicious refreshments, fun games, and of course, plenty of star-studded entertainment. In this blog post, we'll share 4 tips to help you win Best Party, Best Host, and Best Refreshments on the big night. 

Toast to the Stars

Start the evening off in style by greeting your guests with a chilled glass of bubbly. After all, what's a glamorous affair without a bit of sparkling wine? For the ultimate Oscar-worthy sip, we're nominating Saintly The Good Sparkling for the win! Its crisp, refreshing taste and elegant presentation make it the perfect choice to kick off your soirée. Whether you opt for classic champagne flutes or trendy stemless glasses, raise a toast to the nominees and get ready for a night of celebration. 

Elevate Your Snack Game

No Oscar party would be complete without a selection of fancy-ish munchies to nibble on throughout the night. While you could spend hours slaving away in the kitchen, you can save yourself some time and stress by opting for well-chosen store-bought appetizers, finger foods, and a classic charcuterie board. Head to your local gourmet grocery store or specialty food shop and pick up an assortment of artisanal cheeses, cured meats, olives, crackers, and dips. Arrange them on a stylish serving platter or wooden board, and voilà – you've got yourself a spread fit for Hollywood royalty. 

Dress to Impress

Encourage your guests to get red carpet-ready by ditching the sweatpants and dusting off their dresses and dress shirts. After all, part of the fun of attending an Oscar party is getting to dress up and channel your inner movie star. Set the tone for the evening by decking out your living room or entertainment space with glittering decorations, gold accents, and, of course, a makeshift red carpet for guests to strut their stuff on. Encourage everyone to snap photos throughout the night and share them on social media using your party's custom hashtag – because if you didn't document it, did it happen? 

Play Oscar-Worthy Games

 Finally, keep your guests entertained during commercial breaks (or any lulls in the ceremony) with some fun Oscar-themed games. One idea is to print out downloadable Oscar ballots featuring this year's nominees and categories. Have your guests fill out their predictions for the winners, and award prizes to those who come closest to guessing correctly. You could also organize a red-carpet fashion contest, where guests vote on the best-dressed attendee and crown them the evening's fashionista. Whatever games you choose, make sure they're light-hearted and interactive, adding an extra layer of excitement to the festivities.
