Are you guys watching The Oscar’s this Sunday? Awards shows are a lot more fun when you’re watching them with friends, so I’ve put together a few tips for hosting your own Oscar’s viewing party at home!
A chic invite is easy to whip up with sites like Postmark and Punchbowl. In a day and age where people send our their Save The Dates electronically, it’s perfectly fine to send an email invite for your party. If you want to be an over-achiever, you can also mail them through these sites. But I prefer the instant gratification of sending out an invite via email and getting responses right away from my overly-connected friends.
Another recipe from Baileys that sounds Oscar-worthy: the Glamour Shot
Add some fabulous to your evening with this decadent blend of Baileys Vanilla Cinnamon and pure gold leaf.
1 oz. Baileys Vanilla Cinnamon
0.5 oz. Goldschlager Cinnamon Schnapps Edible gold flakes (Optional; found at most baking stores)
Rim shot glass with gold flakes. Mix ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Strain into a shot
This recipe contains no more than 0.6 fl oz. of alcohol per serving.
When I’m hosting, I like to wear dresses, because they’re comfortable and keep me looking put together. Black and gold with lots of shimmer may be an obvious choice for an awards party, but add a few pops with a red lip and quirky rings, and you’ll be in business. Just be sure to wear an apron while you’re mashing those berries for your cocktail. 😉
Ok, I’m off to go watch a couple more of the nominated movies so I know what the heck is going on Sunday night! What other touches do you like to include when you’re hosting an awards party?
