When it comes to big parties, there is one that happens every year, and that is the Oscars. Now this has been an award show that has been going on for a long time. Ever since it started up, people have been having Oscar parties. In order to do it right, there are a few supplies that you have to have. Of course, the first thing that you have to do is pick out your theme. After all, there are a lot of different themes to choose from. Today we are going to cover a few of the different themes and then talk about some Oscar party ideas after that.
First of all, the theme has to be based on what you want people to wear. Do you want it to be like the Oscars, and have everyone dress formal? This would mean that everyone would come in a suit and dress. Most of the time these are called “black tie” parties. Another popular theme is called “black tie, blue jeans.” As you can guess this is a semi formal event. Of course, all of these kinds of themes cost a lot of money to get everything looking nice. If you do not like to spend a lot of money or you're on a budget, try “Oscar Pot Luck.” This is a name that is given to a very casual Oscar party, which normally turns out to be the funnest.
After you come up with the theme that you want to use, then it's time to come up with the products that you will need in order to make it work. First and for most, you need a TV so you can tune in to the show. After that you need food! A party is not a party without some food. Like most parties, an Oscar party works best if you have a lot of snack foods for people to eat. Of course, you need to link it back to your theme. If it's a formal Oscar party, then you are going to want to serve shrimp, crab cakes, and other upscale food. However, if it's a casual party, then go for the chips, dip, and pizza. Likewise, your drink choices should be linked back to the kind of party it is. A casual party may be soda and beer, but an up-class party would be wine and fruit punch.
The food is just part of the Oscar party supplies that you will need. The next thing that you need is to make sure that you have enough spots for people to sit. After all, the Oscars can go on for a long time, and people do not want to stand the whole night. So be sure to have extra chairs, even if they are just fold out chairs. Most people will not stay sitting down the whole night anyway. They are going to want to get up, and hit the snack table.
Having Oscar parties are a lot of fun. After choosing the theme that you want, be sure to send out your invitations. You need to make sure you send out your invitations with tons of time to spare for people to plan around your party.
