Throwing an Oscar night bash on Sunday? Here are some tips (and puns!) to ensure you win the award for Most Fun Party Ever. And click through for more of our celebrity-food mashup illustrations!
1. Get Festive with Decorations
Bring Hollywood glamor to your apartment by decorating your place in A-List glitz. Roll out a red carpet in the hallway, hang black and white balloons (the color of a movie clapperboard), and serve each guest with their own bag of theater-style popcorn on arrival. Even the toughest critic will love the attention to detail.
2. Serve Movie and Celebrity themed Foods (Puns Strongly Encouraged)
There are simply hours of fun (and yum) to be had with this one! Here are a few of our office’s suggestions for a blockbusting movie-menu:
The Hills Have Fries
Close Encounters of a Bird Brined
Life of Pie
You’ve Got Kale
The Italian Cob
Darth Tater Tots
The Theory of EveryWing
Benedict Cucumberbatch (British-style cucumber sandwiches, anyone?)
Bradley Scooper (Ice cream sundae)
3. Serve Movie and Celebrity Themed Drinks
No get-together is complete without a cocktail or two. Here are some movie-themed drink suggestions to get the party started:
There’s Something About Bloody Mary
Pink Lady and the Tramp
Brass Monkey Business
4. Red carpet bingo
Make J-Law tripping on the red carpet even more entertaining by playing some red carpet bingo. Here’s a link to E! Online’s Red Carpet Bingo Print-Out Cards.
5. Oscar predictions
Print out and have your guests fill in these Oscar ballots from Fandango. It’ll make the night more interesting and secure bragging rights for the winner until next year’s party.
