the ushering of a new year comes many things. One in particular? January and
February bring us are our fave awards shows. We drooled over the fashion at the
Golden Globes, and we’re totes excited for the SAG Awards (Jan. 27), the
Grammy’s (Feb. 10), and the Academy Awards (Feb. 24).
any awards show lover knows, the best way to celebrate your fave event is to
enjoy it with fellow fans! So put on your most paparazzi-worthy piece and get
ready to host the best awards show party ever with these tips.
kick things off and spread the word, mail out regal invitations or a super-chic
E-vite. Make sure to include time, place, and a dress code if you want one. You
could either have friends get all dolled-up or leave it casual. The choice is
going to want to make your guests feel like they’re at the actual awards show,
so don’t be afraid to go all out. Roll a mini red carpet out in your house to
get the star-worthy vibe. And make sure to provide ample space and comfy
seating in your viewing room. After all, watching the night’s big event will be
the biggest part of the party.
make sure your guests have enough energy to get through the night, provide
plenty of easy-to-eat munchies. Think appetizers and bite-size pieces so no one
will be distracted from the amazing fashions and heart-warming acceptance
And the award
out homemade ballots to your guests and see who can pick the most winners from
the nominations. Sweeten the deal by offering a fun party favor (like golden
chocolate coins) to the winner. It’s the perfect way to get interactive with
the show, and your competitive friends will totally be on board. Make sure to
keep things fun and relaxed by not making any party game mandatory, though.
People will enjoy themselves way more if they have choices.
the show hosted by Joan Rivers always has awards show editions, beat her and
the “Joan Rangers” to the punch by staying up after the show and dishing about
your fave fashions of the night. You could even go online to look at pics while
nominating your own best—and worst—dressed. Recapping is the best way to end
this party on a good note, and keep your guests chatting for days about all the
fun they had. Score!
