5 Tips for Hosting an Awards Party Like a Pro

Get ready to roll out the red carpet for guests with a fun and festive get-together that’s stress-free and award-worthy!

Set the stage
Create a Tinseltown ambience in your space with silver or gold napkins, hanging stars or make these DIY Marquee Letters. Use any leftover tinsel from the holidays to dress up tables and set out these easy DIY trophy wine toppers on your bottles for added decor. 

Make a dress code
It’s always fun to get dressed up from the casual everyday wear and look your best. Plus, you can give your guests a chance to ham it up and strike a pose for the cameras with some props and a hanging sheet for a fun and easy DIY photo booth right at home.

Cast your vote
Add a little friendly competition to the party by voting on your picks from the awards ballot. Print out the categories and nominees, have your guests vote at the beginning of the party, and have something fun such as a trophy or a bottle of champagne as the prize for the winner at the end of the night.

Open the bubbly
Set up a signature cocktail for celebrating throughout the night, or pick a few of your favorite drink recipes and create a small drink menu for your guests to choose from. Our top picks below will have everyone in great spirits!
