Go Glam! 6 Steps to Award-Winning Party Hosting | Weekends Only Furniture and Mattress
 
A new year kicks off awards season, and if you’re throwing an awards show party, let us make glamorous entertaining easy for you. Whether you’re planning watch parties for the upcoming Grammys and Oscars or tucking these ideas away until the Country Music Awards, Tonys, or Emmys, here are some guaranteed crowd-pleasers for your red carpet debut!

1. Your Dream Bar

The “cocktail dress of furniture” is a core piece for every hosting event. This can be used to serve drinks, as a tabletop buffet, for easy access to your dishes. Plus, it’s an easy spot to display awards party décor.

2. Trays at Your Service

If you want to be a fabulous host with ease, you’ll need some glamorous serving trays that do the work for you. Choose luxurious materials like gleaming silver or soft microfiber to accent your bartending and cooking talent. (Cooking here meaning the Oscars party essential – popcorn!)

3. V.I.P. Seats

After filling your guests up with yummies, make sure your VIPs have “box seats.” And what better way to do that than a upscale leather sectional? Even the Fashion Police won’t find a problem with these styles.

4. The Feature Presentation

If you’re watching an awards show, your TV will be the focal point, so make sure it’s looking red carpet ready. With a stand that hides all of your cords and keeps your living room pretty and organized, your TV will be on everyone’s Best Dressed list.

5. End Credits—Er—Tables

Add an end table or coffee table to make sure everyone has a place to set drinks and food. This will increase comfort and decrease the chance of spills.

6. Accessorize and Finalize

Add glamour with finishing touches such as celebrity-inspired wall art and glitzy colors like gold, silver, and red. And don’t forget that rich jewel tones are one of the biggest trends in home decor for 2017.
