Posted by editor on 02/23/17

If you’re thinking about hosting an Academy Award party at the Castle, we have you covered! Your friends will be impressed with your party hosting skills if you follow some of the tips below.

Dress to Impress: You don’t have to get all decked out if that’s not your thing, but it could be fun to get dressed up as if you’re walking the red carpet, plus you’ll have some fabulous pictures of yourself and friends after.  Another idea is to have people dress up as their favorite movie character.

Have a Food Feast: Having a potluck dinner party is a great idea for Sunday night and a lot of people enjoy showing off their best dishes.  You can even offer awards for Best Appetizer, Best Entrée and Best Dessert. Here are some Oscar party recipes to try. Enjoy the delicious food with a few glasses of champagne to set the mood.

Decorate your Castle Apartment: You can roll out a red carpet down your hallway and see who can do the best cat-walk.  Black and gold streamers and balloons will really give your apartment an elegant look.  Don’t forget about a fun photo booth with props such as Oscar statues, cutouts of your favorite actors and a microphone.  This way you’ll have fun pictures of your party to post on social media (make sure to have a hashtag).

Print Your Own Oscars Ballot: You can print out this Vanity Fair Oscar ballot for everyone to fill out when they arrive and reward the guest that got must of the winners correct.
