On Monday, I shared my PEOPLE mag spread of festive Oscar party ideas but today I’ve got even more ideas to take your viewing party up a notch!
First, The Oscars are all about what a celebrity is wearing, that is why the pre-show is almost as long and in-depth as the actual show! So rather than having your guest dress up in their finest designer duds, suggest that all your guests come dressed wearing a costume from their favorite movie…
For example, someone might dress like a baseball player inspired by the movie MoneyBall while another guest might come in a hula skirt or Hawaiian shirt and shorts–like George Clooney’s character says in The Descendants, “the wealthiest people in Hawaii look like surfers and bums”. A few more fun costume ideas include dressing like “The Help” or wearing a vintage 50’s June Cleaver dress or a soldier uniform, or for the really creative: WARHORSE! Regardless of which movie inspires them, costumes are a fun way to get your guests chatting before the show.
O – can be (5) of the Best Picture nominations in random order
S – can be the (5) Best Actor nominations in random order
C – can be the (5) Best Actress nominations in random order
A – can be the (5) Best Supporting Actor nominations in random order
R – can be the (5) Best Supporting Actress nominations in random order
S – can be the remaining (5) Best Picture nominations in random order
Rather than using a bingo blotter, give everyone gold star stickers to place on the name or title when announced. You can also click HERE to visit a blog called How About Orange, where you can print out 20 different Oscar inspired BINGO boards for free.
Or, you can create a crossword puzzle or one of the many other puzzles at: www.discoveryeducation.com/puzzlemaker. There are a number of fun ways to incorporate the nominees into a puzzle and it is a fun activity for guests to have to figure out.
I hope these activity ideas help you create an extraordinary experience for your Oscar-fest guests this weekend.
