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?

It’s Presidents’ Day: Celebrate with a Sale!

Celebrate Presidents’ Day with a little shopping. Or maybe with a lot of shopping. Why? Because of the Presidents’ Day Weekend Sales of course!

Sears

Where are the biggest deals this weekend? Think off-season or end-of-season. Think fashion clothes and winter-wear, mattresses, flat screen TV’s and laptops. You’ll find the best deals on 2011 close-outs, left-over fall and winter clothing, and last year’s toys. Retailers are bringing in Spring, and need to unload inventory. That’s not to say you won’t find a good deal on a super Spring outfit, though!
