Hello Oscar Party planners! Sunday is approaching fast, and it’s time to put the finishing touches on your shindig. Looking for something unique to entertain your guests? Here’s FIVE ways to use a polaroid camera at your Oscars party.
For me, Oscar Sunday is a a big day. I love the fashion, the comedy, and, of course, the very handsome men dressed in suits. Throwing a party is a great way to get your friends together and celebrate your love of film. The tricky part is keeping your quests entertained the whole time, especially during the red carpet and commercial breaks. I think using polaroid cameras are a great way to do this.
(1) OFFICIAL PRESS BADGE
Make official press badges by printing out templates and then gluing or taping on polaroid pictures of your guests. I think this is a cool way to make your friends feel special. It also serves as a name tag.
(2) PICTURE FRAME PARTY FAVOR
(3) PICTURE GAME CONTEST
Make a list of pictures you want your guests to take (ex. George Clooney smile, funny Tina Fey expression, etc.). During commercial breaks pick something off your list and see what pictures your friends came up with. You can also have people vote on who had the best picture. It’s a lot of fun and is sure to keep your guests happy.
(4) CAPTION GAME
You can also try a polaroid caption game. Have your friends take funny polaroid pictures. Then gather all of them, mix them up, and distribute them. Now have your guests write funny things under the pictures. See an example to the left. This is also a really fun game to play.
Last, but not least, commemorate your Oscar party by making a scrapbook. Have your guests take polaroid pictures of themselves and others. Then they can add them to the scrapbook along with a special note. A scrapbook is a great way to remember the fun times at your party. TIP: add stickers and other decorations to make it more creative.
Have a fabulous Oscar Sunday!
