Oscar time!

February 16, 2011

With tight budgets, limited spending, and staying home, why not throw a party to watch the Hollywood elite spend, glitz, and glam it for you?!

That’s right. February 27th. 83rd Annual Academy Awards. Your living room.

Let’s set the scene…

Check out this year’s nominees. Kings, Swans, and Fighters, oh my!

Decide on your look.

A classic theme with black and gold colors and star shapes is easy and elegant, or get more creative with balloons, red carpets, or even specific decorations to reflect your favorite actor or film of 2010. Great resources for affordable party supplies can be found at Target, Party City, or Oriental Trading.   

Check with your people.

Send out evite invitations (FREE). Set up a free account, pick a template, and input your guests’ email address. It’s on!

Live on set.

Dress up or as down as you like.  Provide nibbles and drinks, or do pot-luck (be sure to include these details in your invite). Champagne cocktails, mocktails, sparkling water or cider, popcorn (a must!), and chocolates can be all you need. Or check out AllRecipes.com for easy appetizer ideas.

And the Oscar goes to…

Party time! Throw on your diamonds and your best smile, and be sure to get shots of your guests as they arrive. Red carpet optional ($9.99).

[Cue exit music.]
