Awards Night is a festive celebration that usually takes place during or after an awards ceremony, most popularly The Oscars; so why not give guests the red carpet treatment with some victory songs? Indeed, any good Awards Night party will come complete with tunes that both celebrate and inspire. They could include:

Winning by Santana
Victory by Kool and the Gang
The Secret to My Success by Night Ranger
Simply the Best by Tina Turner
If the Awards Night festivity is indeed an Oscar party, the host may also wish to play a selection of songs related to motion pictures. These could include:

Movies by Miami Sound Machine
Whatever Happened to Randolph Scott? by the Statler Brothers
The Heart Will Go On (theme from Titanic) by Celine Dion
A successful Awards Night party also should come complete with a ‘winning’ host of glamorous party supplies. This might include a movie theater or red carpet scene setter, invites or place cards that resemble Oscar night awards envelopes, and even gold-wrapped chocolate Oscars as take home party favors. Confetti and champagne should flow in equal measure at an Awards Night party, so also be sure to have colorful goblets on hand for what is sure to be an award-winning party. Quick suggestion: Use movies or music to help set the mood when they are related to a theme or idea. Pick your favorite music and play it softly in the background before your guests arrive, to help you calm down and start to relax. Games will be most useful when selected accordingly to the age range of the participants.

An awards ceremony is a special time in most people’s life and homemade party supplies such as homemade party streamers, balloon bouquets and homemade garden flags make an awards night celebration the perfect ending to a great day. This is a time to honor and celebrate something special. Awards night homemade party supplies such as banners, signs and noise makers are a great addition to an Awards Night party. Little things mean a lot when it is time to celebrate.

Everyone loves receiving awards and a variety of homemade party supplies only add to an Awards Night party. Homemade party supplies such as personalized trophies, hats, feathered boas, noise makers and music make this night one to remember. Every guest will feel like a winner on this evening. Most often, homemade party supplies such as balloon bouquets, handmade flags and personalized Awards Night banners will only add to this party. Handmade party supplies such as costume jewelry, hats and feathered boas are also perfect additions for this party. The more sparkle and glitter the better for everyone.

Most people enjoy dressing up and being the life of the party and the addition of homemade fashion jewelry, costumes and body jewelry will be a welcomed addition to the evening. Everyone will become an adornment at this special happening. Additional homemade party supplies and handmade party goods such as balloon bouquets, personalized banners and flags to adorn the house will make your awards night a success. Most often, handmade banners, signs and flags are personalized and specifically designed to recognize the award recipient. Furthermore, there will be no comparison between these homemade items and others that have been used in the past.


What better way to celebrate Awards Night than with a cake that’s—well—award-winning? Or, at the very least, downright delicious. This is the time to bake an award winning treat.

The specific type of Awards Night cake a host prepares will depend on the type and theme of awards that the party celebrates. After all, there are all types of awards and honors. If the host is planning a festivity to honor a spouse, friend or family member who has won an award, he/she might want to bake a simple homemade cake with an iced “Here’s to the Winner” message emblazoned on top. The winner will feel more victorious when they see this. To decorate the cake, she could use party supplies like first place ribbons and tiny plastic trophics (or edible candied versions of each) to place on top. Little tokens mean a lot in this particular case.

For an Oscar party, perhaps the most frequently celebrated awards festivity, the host could make a vanilla Awards Night cake in the shape of good ol’ Oscar, one perhaps topped with icing of sweet gold buttercream. Make this particular Oscar look like the real deal! For a Grammy party, a standard party cake could be topped off with a plastic facsimile of a Grammy award, or an edible model of a gramophone or turn table. A tasty cake in the shape of a musical note also would work.

For a sports awards party the host might serve an Awards Night cake shaped and iced to resemble the type of ball used in the sport being honored, such as a baseball, basketball or soccer ball.

Have a real ‘bar’ at any awards festivity with an Awards Night cake.

Movie buffs and true-blue music lovers are sure to love an Awards Night Party theme. As excitement builds up for the next Oscars, Golden globe or Grammy Awards ceremony why not commemorate the occasion by having a little party of your own. It might be a nice way for you and your friends to get together and witness the ceremony on TV. But if you are a real fan then you wouldn’t want any disturbance on the awards night in which case you may want to host your party on some night prior to the actual event.

So how do you begin to prepare for your Awards Night Party. It’s not that difficult really. All you need to think is glitz and glamour and everything will fall into place. Lay out a red carpet as your guests arrive and fix some flashing strobe lights to make them feel like they are being hounded by the paparazzi. Welcome them with some bubbly and keep it flowing through the evening. All your decorations and place setting should be very elegant and classy, yet shiny and sparkling.

In anticipation of the real Awards Night, you can start a competition at your party and have your guests take a guess at the winners. Of course you should have a prize ready for the one who gets the most right.

So go ahead and glam it up to your heart’s content and make your Awards Night Party nothing less than one of those at Hollywood.

The term Awards Night generally brings to mind an occasion such as an Oscar party; a grand fete celebrated in conjunction with an award ceremony that dates back to 1929. There is simply no grander spectacle than the Oscars.

Traditional Oscar parties were formal gatherings based in Hollywood and Los Angeles, that involved catered meals, lavish evening wear, the presence of paparazzi, and goodie bags that could contain diamond jewelry and gold trinkets. No expense was ever spared at these grand galas.

Through the years people around the country, of all income levels and economic situations, have started to host more casual Awards Night galas on Oscar night, featuring exorbiant servings of pizza and beer, laughter and casual conversation, and novelty party favors like chocolate Oscars and plastic ‘movie star’ sunglasses. They also host awards parties in conjunction with the Grammys, the Emmys, the Golden Globes, the Tonys, etc. A reason to honor achievements is a reason to have fun.

Moreover, Awards Night parties now are held in honor of other types of honors, such as those given by companies, sports teams, schools, as well as by social and community service groups. These awards festivities typically take place at restaurants, country clubs, and community halls, and involve full meals as well as the distribution of trophies, plaques and certificates; some of which are professionally made, others handmade. Though these events generally fail to boast a red carpet, hosts do give the red carpet treatment to award-winning guests. Even a scarlet hued doormat qualifies as a red carpet!

Whether a host is celebrating a national awards program, or handing out some home grown honors all her own, nothing beats the glamour and excitement of Awards Night.
