My sister Kara and her husband are serious when it comes to the Oscars. Like, they watch every nominated movie serious. Not just the best picture nominees, ALL the nominees. So you can bet that she is on top of things when it comes to planning her annual Oscar Party. Today she’s sharing a few of her party planning secrets.
She’s broken the party planning down into three main areas: menu, activities, and swag bags.
First up the the menu. The Oscars almost require a movie themed menu. Even the drinks.
Movie themed menu:
- Shirley Temple‘s with homemade grenadine
- Popcorn w/ skittles (her husband’s concoction)
- Soft Pretzels
- Hot Dogs
Next up are the activities. No party is complete without some party games. The two most Party Activities at an Oscar Party are:
- Fill out your Oscar Ballots (see who gets the most right!)
- Play Oscar Bingo while you eat and watch the show
Kara designed these Oscar Bingo cards. There are four cards and each one is unique. Print one off for each of your guests and yourself and play along during the show.
Of course no Oscar party is complete without Swag Bags. Here’s what Kara is putting in hers this year:
Are you throwing an Oscar watching party this year?
