The 88th Academy Awards airs Live Oscar Sunday, February 28, on ABC and will be hosted by Chris Rock.

Whether you are hosting a party of few or many, we’ve got some fun ideas for your viewing pleasure that we’re excited to share.

Statue favors are always a hit at any award show themed party! Not only will they make for dazzling décor but they will also help to ignite the “party” vibe throughout your event. Your guests will get a kick out of them and take them home to display on their own mantles – at least for a little while.

We at Photo Booth of the Stars are just loving these golden Oscars Party free printables that we found over on We Heart Parties. They are sure to glam up your space and the possibilities for them are endless! You can grab your own set by clicking right HERE. We hope you will use them to deck out your cocktails, cupcakes, or buffet area. We’d love to see what you do with them!

When planning your party decorations, don’t forget about the floor! Roll out the red carpet and stick some gold stars to it! Kick it up to award winning level by including your guest’s names on each star like these we found over on The Succulent Wife. You can see more ideas from them by clicking HERE.

Don’t stop there! Use some of those stars as photo booth props or a festive backdrop in your photo booth rental!

Don’t forget about all of the fun little photo booth props you can indulge in throughout the award show! Your photo booth is the perfect commercial break activity and will keep your guests entertained all night long. We love this 24 piece Hollywood prop set we found on Etsy. It has a little bit of everything you need for an award show including 3D glasses, popcorn, ticket stubs, and so much more. You can click HERE to check out the set.
