You’ve often debated whether it’s the red carpet or the awards themselves that draw in the crowds, but let’s face it. Hollywood award shows are a fabulous occasion to gather your A-List friends and dish about dresses, gorgeous stars + their shining talents.

It’s never too late to decide to throw a fun, casual fete, and we’ve got 5 show-stopping tips for throwing a great party, even if you announce your plans the day of!

5 Tips to Throwing an Award Winning, Awards Show Party | Red Stamp 1. And the invitation goes to… :: Pushing the envelope on last minute fun? Text or email a digital invite to round up the troops. Make sure you invite your crowd over early enough so you can tune in for the red carpet! The show starts at 4 pm PST // 8 pm EST – but leave plenty of time for the *fab* pre-shows! Details here.

2. Dazzle with all things gold :: Gold is a great – and easy – way to glam up your space. And it ties perfectly in with the theme of those sparkling statuettes. Roll out a red carpet – literally – using everything from construction paper to actual thread. Rim your stemware with sugar laced with gold sanding.

3. Eat like a star :: Nibbles and bites are in order for such a decadent affair. Let guests serve themselves to free you up to join in the fun. Here is our {Red Stamp!} award-winning popcorn. Trust us, it’s delicious!

BROWN BUTTER ROSEMARY POPCORN
{serves 2}

4 Tbsp. butter
1 bag popcorn {popped}
2 rosemary sprigs
4 Tbsp. chopped rosemary
¼ cup shredded Parmesan

In a skillet, heat butter over medium, whisking frequently. Once the butter begins to foam, turn heat to low. Add rosemary sprigs. Remove from heat once browned specks have formed + there is a nutty aroma. Discard rosemary sprigs. Pour liquid mixture over popcorn. Add parmesan + chopped rosemary, mix thoroughly.

4. Spice the night up with an activity :: Award show bingo is a fun opt-in for those who want to actively enjoy the festivities. Here is our go-to Bingo download.

5. Don’t let them go home empty handed :: Clearly your guests play some sort of important {lead or supporting} role in your life. Is she your Thelma to your Louise? Is he your Jack Dawson to your Rose? Let them know with a handwritten sentiment on how they’ve been there for you this year. Tuck it into an envelope so they can take it home.
