An Oscar-Worthy Party

It’s the best season of the year: Oscar season! The best movies are out in theatres, your favorite actors are all dolled up, and one night determines which films and stars are worthy of the coveted Academy Awards.
I get chills just thinking about it.
So how can you bring that glamour into your home next Sunday? Simple: host an Oscars party! Tell all your friends to get dressed up and come over to watch the Oscars. You don’t have to prepare a whole lot to have a classy party!
The Oscars’ website has ballots and bingo so you can remember your predictions and keep busy during the lengthy ceremony. Offer a swag bag or trophy to your party guests who predicted the most (or least) wins, who wins Oscar Bingo and whoever saw the most Best Picture nominees to encourage a little friendly competition! 
A glamorous party also calls for fabulous food and drink. You can buy champagne flutes in bulk at the dollar store or Party City, and they’re the easiest way to make your party feel instantly more elegant. Honestly, they could just have water in them and I’d feel sophisticated! Set up a few stations around your apartment with small snacks and appetizers, or if you’re feeling ambitious, head on over to Pinterest where you can find creative Oscar-inspired recipes, such as star-shaped tortilla chips or hot dogs in tuxedos.
Also make sure that you have gold anything. Napkins or plates. Spray paint the bottom of your champagne flutes. Macaroni and cheese. Anything to accent the color of the biggest night in Hollywood will do! 
So get planning, collegietes; the big day will be here sooner than you know it! Everyone who’s anyone will be tuning in to watch, so why not make a party out of it?
