Award Season is in full swing. And whether you’re more into the Bafta’s or the Brits, the Grammy’s or the Oscar’s, there’s no denying we Brits are scooping them up left, right and centre!
So to celebrate, and join in with the stars, why not throw your own Awards Night party
? The Oscars are fast approaching, on February 22nd
, that’s a Sunday by the way, and they begin at 1.30am Monday morning our time, so plenty of time to warm up the party before they start right?
Maybe that’s not such a good idea, but the Award Night Theme is! We’ve got a huge range of decorations
and fancy dress
to make your 'ceremony' a roaring success.
To begin, well who’s on your guest list? That’s up to you, but we can help with our fantastic selection of award night invitations
And if, for some reason you don't actually manage to get the Angelina Jolie
's and Brad Pitt's
to come then why not use some of our celebrity masks
? Did you see our blog
on this a few months ago? Well why not put that into action? With your real guests in appropriate black tie, of course.
Next, the decor. Simple and understated, or over the top and flashy? Either way you need a red carpet
. For the understated, we've got these gold pom pom decorations
to add a bit of glamour and a slightly vintage feel to your party. And for the overstated, check out our award night whirls
Gold and black is definitely the main colour theme for this party. Check out our full range of coloured decorations here
. Star decorations are also a must. Whether it's in the form of hanging ceiling decorations
, no award night party will be complete without them.
PS if you're feeling lazy, we've done the hard work for you and put together a great pack
, with a great selection of award night decorations in it. Simple.
Now for the meal. What's on your menu? And make sure you get the place settings right, you know what the feuds are like in LaLa land....
Our disposable ranges of tableware are great for any event, and make the clear up a LOT easier. Mix and match our plain colour range
, or go for one of our themes
. Tables aren't all about the crockery remember, pinterest
has got some great ideas for table settings, this
is our favourite for the theme, and uses all items we stock on our website!
With the meal is over and done, it's time for the actual award giving. What will yours be? Best Dressed? Best Behaved?.... Worst Behaved?! Whatever you decide, we've got the statuettes
Once you've doled out the awards, and given a few awkward speeches, then I think you're off duty. Time to relax and enjoy your event, and probably hit the dance floor. Lacking a dance partner? It might be a bit OTT to try and dance with one of these
lifesize cutouts, but they're great fun anyway, and definitely in keeping with the theme. Don't forget to use our scene setters
to make sure your dance floor is looking every bit as fantastic and Hollywood worthy as it should be!
Well there you have it, our definitive guide to throwing a great Award Night bash! We hope we've given you some good ideas. And here's one final one
to help those last straggling stars to find their way home..... You are welcome :)
