Creating an Awards Night Party

March 7, 2018

In addition to being the time of year for resolutions, and new starts, the early part of the year is also the awards season for the entertainment industry. Whether it is for movies, music, television, Broadway, or even sports, it seems like there is an awards night on TV every week. And awards night can be an opportunity for you to gather with your friends, make predictions, and even dress fancy if you want. If you're going to have a viewing party with your family and friends that will be the envy of the neighborhood, use these tips to make your party award worthy. 

Create invitations

Nothing will get guests in the spirit of the occasion easier than creating letters in the theme of the show you are watching. Make them fancy looking with the colors and font type used for the awards show. Guests will appreciate the time and effort you put into the invites, and the party will feel extra exclusive if you collect the invites at the door.

Create a dress code

Use your imagination on this. You can ask guests to dress up fancy or dress up in dresses or suits of their favorite actors or actresses from years past. To go the extra mile, you might even have a camera or two and interview them on who they are wearing. You might also have a contest on who is best dressed, etc. 

Roll out the Red Carpet

Rolling out the red carpet is a fancy touch. Everyone enjoys feeling special and what better way to glam up your party than to have a red carpet welcoming people to your party. 

Create an Awards Night Bingo Card

Make a competition out of the viewing party. As you are watching, you can have different things that can happen during the show and make some themed awards for people that complete their bingo cards.

Create a Photo Booth

To create an even more memorable experience for your guests, give them the chance to be photographed just like the celebrities. Have a couple of photographers (professional or amateur) that will take pictures of people as they enter the house. 

Upgrade that Viewing Experience

If you don’t have a cinema-like experience in your house already, consider renting a screen for the night. Create theater-like seating with chairs or even recliners taken from the rest of the house or borrowed from others. Consider having someone serve hors-d'oeuvres or food at the party while guests watch the ceremonies. 

Decorate the room

Create an exciting experience by decorating the room in the right colors. Consider black and gold streamers, placing Old Hollywood or other types of decorations that match the theme of the show you will be watching. Decorations will create an atmosphere that will help guests get into the spirit of the occasion.

Take the time to create an atmosphere and guests will be talking about your viewing party for years to come. Contact Mark Moyes for all your lending needs.
