Academy Award worthy party tips and ideas:
- It can’t be a true Hollywood Academy Awards event without welcoming guests to the gala with a movie premiere inspired red carpet entry. Our REEL Hollywood indoor/outdoor red sidewalk runner is perfect for an impressive entrance to the seriously swanky Oscars inspired event.
- Along the red carpet, be sure to set up spots for paparazzi style photo shoots of your “celebrity” guests as they arrive at the Oscars. Try locating life-size cutouts of your favorite movie stars from past or present Academy Award winners. “All right Mr. Demille, I’m ready for my close up” – Gloria Swanson, Sunset Boulevard
- Set the stage with the REEL Hollywood theme decorating panels. The bottom and top panels combined create the look of pulled red curtains with bright stage lights overhead.
- Our customizable giant party banner allows the flexibility for use at a variety of events like "A Star is Born" baby shower, Hollywood A-list bridal shower, an Academy Awards birthday celebration or even an annual Oscars party.
- The movies are all about the love story. For co-ed wedding shower fun, locate two movie director’s chairs and incorporate the name of the bride and groom on each. "It was a million tiny little things that, when you added them all up, they meant we were supposed to be together… and I knew it." – Tom Hanks, Sleepless in Seattle
Oscar worthy appetizers and treats:
- Find your favorite Caprese salad recipe with Mozarella, Tomatos, and Basil to create delicious “Hollywood & Vine Tomato Salad”
- A Hollywood icon, Spago inspired Mini Pizza’s can be a big hit for all ages and super fun to create. Just locate take home pizza dough from your local grocery or pizza palace and let guests go crazy with a variety of pizza toppings. Go traditional or let wanna be Hollywood chefs create their own masterpieces using inspirational toppings provided. Do you have a Wolfgang Puck in your midst?
- Be sure the bar is well stocked for your Oscars event with items for creating Shirley Temples (7-up or ginger-ale mixed with grenadine) or for the more masculine taste, Roy Rogers (cola mixed with grenadine)
- Pop up some movie-style popcorn for service in the REEL Hollywood theme Popcorn Boxes. These also serve as a great decorative element for your goody table at your Academy Awards party
