Every year I throw an Oscar party. I love the Oscars! This year will be my biggest party yet. I have 40 people so far the have RSVP'd and it is going to be so much fun!

Here are just a few things I am doing this year for the party.

Oscar Bingo: I've made and printed out "bingo" cards that have Oscar related things instead of numbers. The cards have things like, music cuts off speech, presenter puts on glasses to read teleprompter, nominee trips coming up stairs... When you get a "bingo" you shout OSCAR!

Pin the Oscar on the actor: My friend came up with this idea. She printed out two large posters of Kate Winslett and Heith Ledger and a smaller picture of an Oscar. Same idea as pin the tail on the donkey.

Movie quote challenge: We printed out a ton of movie quotes from all different types of movies and put them in a jar and pass it around. People have to try and guess the movie and who said it.

Movie soundtrack game: Same idea as movie quotes, only you have to guess what movie the song came from.

Guess who: When guests arrive, they are given an actor/actress to wear on their back (just small picture) and they are not allowed to know who it is. They have to figure it out by asking other guests yes/no questions to try and figure it out.

I bought two pinatas (one shaped like a movie camera and the other like a slate). We are giving away prizes like movie theater tickets, itunes gift card and little oscar statues for games.

Our clubhouse where we had the party. Pin the Oscar on teh actor posters and swag bag area.

Close up!

Swag bag table with cds, candy, toys, awards!

That sounds great.  I had an Oscars party for my birthday one year and I spraypainted a Ken doll gold, nailed him to a gold spray painted tuna upside-down tuna can, and glued a crafted golden sword between his hands.  In the photos it looked EXACTLY like an Oscar and everyone loved it.  Also, I worked at a movie theater so I had special privileges, but I'm sure you can convince your local theater to give you old movie posters and a trailer reel for free.  Trailer reels are just like 4" in diameter, but there's hundreds of feet of film to them and they make great decorations instead of streamers (also, guests love to guess which movie they are for).  I both put up the posters and I gave them away to people who won Best Costume, Most Correct Ballot Guesses, and some other third thing (it was 3 years ago - cut me a break!).  Lastly, I'm sure you've got some version of it, but I bought a red plastic tablecloth from the dollar store and cut it into three long runs for a red carpet as people approached the house.  Yours sounds so much fun and I can't wait for photos.

I love planning parties - come to me if you need any ideas!

Tomorrow is the big day! I've been working on a crocheted Oscar inspired by the one that a fellow crafter on these forums made. I've also been burning and Oscar party mix cd for all the guests (will include songs from movies from all years).

We are making little goodie bags for adults and kids. The adults will have a cd, Oscar buttercream mints, movie star glasses and candy from the pinatas. The kids will have little toys, candy, a cd, movie star glasses and crazy straws.

The posters that we made for pin the oscar on the actor were printed on photo paper and after the party, we are gonna have everyone sign the borders on both pictures and then get them framed.

I am so excited about our party!
