Tips & Tricks for Throwing a Fabulous Academy Awards Party
By Cara Chronis February 21,2013
Throwing an Academy Awards party on Sunday? You’ve come to the right blog! Lucky for you, lifestyle expert Maureen Petrosky has some stellar tips for throwing a fabulous red carpet viewing party. Be sure to check out our guide on nominee-themed food to serve at your Academy Awards party.
1. Keep it small. Too many guests- more than 10- means you’ll likely miss the whole show.
2. Offer easily portable snacks so guests can graze and still see the TV. Which, by the way, if you have more than one, turn them on so the red carpet can be viewed from as many places as possible. This is one of the only times I will recommend all TVs on for a party.
3. Serve big batch drinks. Pre-made batched drinks let you be part of the fun instead of working the event.
1 cup of Little Black Dress Vodka
In a large pitcher filled with ice, combine all of the ingredients and stir. Serve in Champagne flutes. Serves 4 to 6.
4. Keep it casual but not too casual. The red carpet starts at 3pm EST, which means that west coast viewing parties kick off even before noon. No need for floor length gowns and up-dos but don’t skip the glitz all together! This is the red carpet after all. Throw on sparkly stilettos with your jeans. Don some fabulous jewelry with a simple sweater and of course, break out your best crystal to toast the best dressed!
