Party In True Oscar Fashion

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – There’s only one way to celebrate the 80th Annual Academy Awards (Feb. 24): With a glitzy, Oscar-worthy bash at home!

The folks at Turner Classic Movies (TCM) have some fabulous, Hollywood-style party tips that’ll make your Oscar- themed bash the talk of the town.

For starters, you can create party invitations for guests that resemble the foldout Oscar envelope and include a ballot that lists nominees from major categories like Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Director for guests who want to participate in an Oscar pool.

For decorations, you can set up glamorous, Oscar- inspired lights and a movie theater seating arrangement in front of the TV.

You can also buy a piece of red carpet to create a red carpet entry for your guests as they arrive to your party, and hand out disposable cameras for guests to play paparazzi.

Finally, create variations of traditional movie theater staples for snacks, like homemade chocolate-covered raisins, and allow guests to create their own popcorn flavors with dried herbs, spices, and parmesan cheese.

To ring in the Oscars, TCM is currently airing 31 Days of Oscar, a special programming schedule that includes films like Jerry Maguire, Some Like It Hot, and Funny Girl.
