How to Throw an Awesome Oscars Party
There’s nothing like the Oscars. The fashion, the movies, the stars… It’s one of my favorite nights of the year. In preparation, I try to see as many of the nominated movies as I can prior to Oscar Night. And there’s no better way to watch the Oscars than with a group of friends. Nebraska Furniture Mart has all the basic essentials to throw a great party that will truly be remembered.
At your party your guests will be the celebrities, so why not give them the red carpet treatment? Greet your guests with a walk down the red carpet. There are dozens to choose from but sometimes keeping it simple is best.
The Oscars are more formal than their cousin, The Golden Globes, so there’s usually no drinking at the awards. But since we are all about making your guests feel like celebrities, there’s no better way than to serve champagne right when the reach the end of the carpet. And it never hurts to serve your guests on a clever table that’s out of the norm.
Snacks are important as well, so popcorn will be a necessity. Because movies and popcorn go together like Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, an air popper is best. One of my favorites is this old fashioned popcorn cart, because then you don’t have to worry about displaying it. It takes care of that itself, plus it can go in the corner of a room without being too prevalent.
Once your guests have their drinks and refreshments have them relax in comfortable seating. If space allows, I’m always a fan of a sectional. And I think an ottoman makes a handy replacement of end tables. Personally I’m not a fan of the leather look, but it can give that look of elegance that would really tie the room together.
Just like the celebrities walking the red carpet, your guests should get some swag bags. Fill them up with Gift Cards, See’s Candy, and thank you cards, which are all available at our stores. This set up will make your guests feel relaxed, allowing them to enjoy the show, and leaving them with a memorable evening that will leave everyone feeling like a winner.
