Celebrate the Oscars at Home on Sunday!

9 Tips for Hosting a Fabulous Oscar Party
9 Tips for Hosting a Fabulous Oscar Party

As a real estate professional, I've made a pretty steady commitment to take time OFF on Sundays and make it a day long time block of personal time. Church takes up my mornings, but I'm moving Open House activity to week days or Saturdays. Sundays are saturated with the traditional time of Open Houses and for my sanity and open house strategy, Saturday is looking more and more like the best day for those events.

BUT, I also want to have Sunday free to plan some . Here's a great article I read on my company RE/MAX website on planning a Oscar Party at your home on Sunday!

Tips for Hosting a Fabulous Oscar Party

The Academy Awards this Sunday are a terrific excuse to gather the neighbors and celebrate glitz and glamour of Hollywood. Here are a few tips on throwing an unforgettable Oscar party.

1. Dress Up
Encourage guests to wear their favorite formalwear. Or better yet, suggest they come decked out in the spirit, or era, of their favorite 2016 nominee. Mountain men from “The Revenant” or “Mad Max” warriors are sure to be a hit.

2. Roll out the red carpet

Guests can make their own big entrance like Hollywood royalty. Party stores sell cheap vinyl “carpets” for a few bucks.

3. Pretend you’re the Paparazzi
Snap pics of your guests “waving to fans” as they arrive. Have a few feather boas, toy jewels and tiaras on hand as props.

4. Get corny                                                                                                                          

Even if you’re serving more sophisticated fare, any party celebrating movies needs to have plenty of popcorn. Set up a toppings bar with favorites such as garlic, parmesan, lime and chili powder. And extra butter, of course! Pick up fun striped popcorn buckets at the dollar store.

5. Cast your vote

Movie sites such as Fandango have ready-made Oscar ballot sheets you can print for guests. Award prizes (movie tickets, perhaps?) to the guest with the most (or least) accurate predictions.

6. Bring out the bubbly

Serving champagne, sparkling cider or any sort of fizzy cocktail in champagne flutes adds a splash of elegance.

7. Have pun with your menu

Have fun naming dishes after this year’s nominees. For example, guests could snack on The Hateful Eight-Layer Bean Dip.

8. Snack bar bonanza

Ensure a movie mood (and sugar buzz) by offering your favorite movie treats. Raisinets, Milk Duds and Twizzlers are must-haves.
