5. Are you the “Hostess with the Mostest?” Then Party On! Create Oscar fun of your own and have your friends “compete” for “Oscars.” This can be a fun, inexpensive way to be the “hostess with the mostest” on Oscar night. You can either pick up inexpensive “Oscar” prizes at a local discount store or make your own. And to help you get planning, here’s two party ideas that are sure to keep your guests entertained:

  • Game on! Challenge your guests to make their own Oscar winner picks. Use the fun MyPicks form to create your own ballot or the pre-made Oscar 2012 Ballot; distribute it as your guests arrive and have each one complete their own ballot. At the end of the evening, award an “Oscar” to the most accurate Red Carpet savvy guest!

  • And the Oscar goes to: Create your own list of Oscar categories, complete with space to nominate a guest for each “best of” category. Throughout the evening, announce award winners, complete with an “Oscar.” Here’s a few ideas to start your own Oscar Awards program:
    • Best Dressed – Best Strut – Best Bling: Have a “cat-walk” just like the Red-Carpet! Then award an Oscar to the “Best” in each category.
    • Best Predictions: Pick five top categories and take a quick poll right before the winner is announced. Treat the winner(s) with an Oscar.
    • Best “Acceptance” Speech: Have everyone offer up their best Oscar Acceptance speech.
    • Best Dessert: Ask everyone to bring a special dessert and have a taste-testing “pre-Oscar” event. Will it be “death by chocolate”  or “sunshine salad” for this year’s best tasty treat?

      Hi Carolyn, So the big question is: did you buy anything? I really loved the jewelry from both Gilt and Etsy. And I am attending an Oscar party where there is a “best picks competition” … I think I better do some research so I stand a chance of winning! lol

      Hi Elvira, So glad I could help you get a deal on those sunglasses! I bet they look great on you. Great idea on kids’ clothing deals. I think you just “suggested” an upcoming blog for me. What kind of bling are you looking for? I’ve seen some pretty awesome drool bibs! lol
