Family Movie Awards Party
It’s Award Season, Host a Party!
We’re in full award season this time of year. Our family loves going to the movies so we host a family movie awards party where the kids vote on all their favorites. We made the family room red carpet ready with decorations from Oriental Trading, served up popcorn and cupcakes and even had swag bags for our guests.
Oriental Trading provided Mom’s Lifesavers with movie themed party items to facilitate this review – all opinions expressed are our own.
Setting the Scene
We love this table runner featuring film – it is such a hit with our guests. It is lightweight, laid flat and is perfect for collecting autographs. We put a few markers out so our guests could leave their mark. We also had movie themed notepads for our guests to collect ‘autographs’ from one another.
Food & Games
What goes great with movies? Popcorn of course! We popped ours up and served it with a side of ‘Movie Bingo’. Bingo is a great family game, the directions are easy to follow and the competition can get fierce. This ‘everything included’ bingo card game from Oriental Trading comes with star spots, game cards and bingo call outs. Made of heavy card stock with perforated lines, the game pieces are easy to use.
Cupcakes on the Red Carpet
That’s right, we used this awesome film inspired cupcake stand from Oriental Trading as the centerpiece of our red carpet cupcakes. This stand arrives flat and goes together in under 2 minutes. Not only is it sturdy when assembled, it looks amazing! We added cupcakes along with some movie inspired decorations can holders.
