The oh-so-fabulous Academy Awards are about to take place. Glitz and glam will rule the red carpet and you will see some of your favorite actors and actresses win (and lose) awards.
You can incorporate these ‘Wow’ moments into a party of your own – red carpet style. Here are a few tips to make your ‘Academy Awards’ party one to remember.

Paper invites? Cute. But nowadays, with everyone on his or her phones checking their emails constantly, evites are way more efficient. Get creative with yours by including catchy slogans like “And the Oscar goes to…, Didn’t make the cut to Jennifer Lawrence’s New Year’s Eve Party? Well we’ve got you covered for the Oscars.” Choose from a variety of free Awards Party Evites, which include the ever-so-popular designs of the Walk of Fame, Red Carpet and Deco Ticket.

What’s a party without food? Treat your guests to the ultimate Awards party with these Awards-inspired recipes. Ice Cream BonBon Pops are a delicious snack to really get you into the movie spirit. Nothing says movie night like popcorn. Take your popcorn game up a notch and serve Star-Studded Popcorn, which is not only delicious, but is also pretty to look at. Cheesy Crustless Mini Quiches are a fun way to get your grub on while judging the fashion at the Red Carpet.

Decorations are everything at an awards party. From rolling out a red carpet at your front door to adorning your home with Oscar statues, the Academy Awards are a perfect excuse to bring out the glitz and glam at home. We love these tuxedo-wearing flute glasses and Academy Awards centerpieces. You can also make these bow tie napkins and leave them at random places around the house and see which guest is able to collect the most at the end of the night.

And that leads us to games. Have your guests join in on the speech-giving fun and use this template to create their very own Oscars acceptance speech. You’ll be sure to get a lot of laughs. Another fun game is “Red Carpet Bingo.” Print out awards-customized bingo cards and have your guests mark off each space as they spot an actress wearing the corresponding dress style. They can only mark off one space per dress. The first person to get five in a row wins.

Pick a dress theme for your party and make sure your guests are in the loop before they arrive. You can go with Hollywood glam and have your guests show up in their best glam look or you can have each guest dress up as a nominee along with their best interpretation of the star. How funny would it be to see your best friend dressed up as the beloved Leo Dicaprio, Cate Blanchett, or Sylvester Stallone?
