Awards Night party themed inspiration and ideas

Awards Night Party Theme

And the award goes to…

About the Theme

Dust off those champagne flutes and slip into your judgy-pants--it’s Awards Season time. The Oscars, Emmys and Golden Globes offer annual opportunities to weigh-in on celebrity red carpet looks and cheer on your favorite artists, performances and films.

Give your viewing party a black tie spin to fit in with the red carpet glam, or dress it down with a funny dress code like snappy sweatpants (a spin on business casual) so everyone can feel comfortable while watching the show.

VIBE: Extravagant


Venue Settings


A Penthouse can offer all the luxuries of a ritzy venue with the cozy appeal of a home-thrown event. There will be plenty of room to lounge—and most likely—with a view.



Award shows typically commence with beautiful classical music that set the tone for the rest of the evening. A violinist can emulate this experience while delighting guests upon their arrival.

Gourmet Popcorn

Serve up this classic movie snack by the bag or set up a DIY gourmet popcorn bar. Offer a range of flavors: butter, caramel, kettle corn, cheddar. A few varieties of chocolate candies balance out this salty treat.
