Hi guys!  Do you get excited when movie awards season rolls around?  We do!  I love to watch the red carpet, dish about the fashion, and make predictions about who's going to win each award {even though we haven't seen half of the movies}.  So. Much. Fun!  Usually we gather around the TV as a family in our jammies and settle in for the evening, but I have always thought it would be awesome to throw a fancy party and invite our friends to dress up and walk the red carpet in real life.  My husband, not so much.  Now that my kids are teenagers, however, I have a whole new group of people to entertain!  My kids were totally game for throwing the "most epic" movie awards party their friends had ever seen.  Woohoo!

How to Host an Epic Movie Awards Party in 3 simple steps:

1. Prepare Your Friends

An epic party begins with an epic invitation so your guests can catch the vision of what's in store the night of the event.  We thought an Old Hollywood Gala would be a fun idea so we went in that direction.

The blank version is available here for you to download and use.  Just add your party info, print, and send it to all your guests.

2. Prepare Your Home

A "gala" calls for some super fancy decorations and food.  I'm thinking mocktails, metallic gold, mirrored finishes, and a touch of Hollywood memorabilia.

We found mirrored frames at the dollar store and filled them with iconic images from classic movies found on the internet.  To get our guests mingling, we made a game of identifying the movies represented by the images.  The person who can correctly guess the most classic movies will win a pair of movie tickets! {My daughter and her friend are taking Film Study this year in school, so they may have an unfair advantage...}

We also thought it would be fun {and a little cheeky} to frame some common awards show phrases to add to the decor:

3. Prepare Yourself!

You can't show up to your own gala looking like a scrub!  Before your friends show up to celebrate the top picks in entertainment, get your act together with some award winning products.  Make sure your nicest clothes are Tide-clean and pressed.  Brush your teeth with whitening toothpaste like Crest 3D White Brilliance for a sparkling movie-star smile.  And, by all means, make sure you apply your Secret or Old Spice deodorant so you don't break a sweat under pressure as the host!  {You want "the scent of confidence", don't you?}
