Ideas to Bring Glamour to Your Awards Party
Throwing an A-List Awards party can be exciting and a great way to get all of your friends together and cheer on your favorite celebrities. There are many ways to make your party unique and a night to remember for your guests. Decorating is key in making it feel like you are a part of the celebration as well as serving award-show dishes on dazzling displays. At Broadway Party, you can find many things you may need for decorating and displaying, making your Awards party worthy of a trophy.
Bring the celebrity experience to your guests from the moment they walk in. Using a Carpet Runner along with Stanchions and Ropes for the grand red carpet entrance will be sure to get your party going in the right mood and bring the elegance of an award party. Focusing on your color scheme will also help bring it all together. For an Oscar or Grammy party, thinking reds, golds, and blacks will help tie the theme together. Utilizing these colors in your napkins and table runners will give your tables the extra touch of style. Be sure to highlight those sought after trophies and let the gold shine throughout. For centerpieces, get creative with candles and consider a chalkboard to use as a welcome sign or to write out the schedule for the grand event.
For feeding your guests, be sure to utilize multiple platforms of serving dishes. Having food and appetizers accessible throughout the party is easy with serving platters and tiered dishes. That way they can refill when they want and you won’t have to wait until commercials or interrupt the award viewing with set meals. If you are planning on having a drink bar, make sure there are enough champagne flutes for everyone to enjoy. Stock tanks are available to keep other drinks cold and can be filled with ice or prefill decanters. If you are looking to have classy plates as well, you can rent china plates and silverware as well.
For added fun, rent a helium tank to fill festive balloons. Look for balloons that fit your color scheme for the entry or by the food or other fun shapes that fit like gold stars. If you are looking for other activities to do before the awards show or to fill in during commercial breaks create a backdrop for a photo area to capture the fun moments with your friends on the runway just like the celebrities with a Red Carpet for your Step & Repeat Publicity Back drop. For snack ideas, you can also rent a popcorn machine to keep going throughout for an easy and fun award viewing snack.
Whether you are invested in Oscar Award predictions or just want to throw fun party for your friends, you will find all of the extra touches you will need to make your A-List Awards party extra special and glamorous.

Want to Know Some Red Carpet History?
In modern times, red carpets are synonymous with entertainment awards, glamour, visiting VIPs, or just to give guests the “red carpet treatment,” but why is it we like to roll out the red carpet?
No one is absolutely sure of the origin, but it’s been suggested it goes back to ancient Greece and the classical play Agamemnon, written in 458 BC.
A character in the play, Agamemnon, is welcomed home by his wife to a grand reception with a deep red and purple carpet, the color of the gods! He’s an arrogant character and his wife Clytemnestra wants to show this by having him literally walk all over the gods, eventually he does but only after protesting that a red carpet is only worthy of a god.
One way or another, this fable passed down through centuries with the purple fading to a plain deep red, which only the most important members of society were to walk on.
A red carpet is traditionally used to mark the route taken by heads of state on ceremonial and formal occasions, and has in recent decades been extended to use by VIPs and celebrities at formal events.
Railroads seem to have commercialized the practice by commonly rolling out red carpets on platforms to direct passengers to the correct portion of the train just as many hotels run red carpets from the pavement into their lobbies for arriving guests.
Today it’s been widely embraced by the entertainment industry, with the world’s most famous red carpet events being at the Academy, Grammy Awards, and Oscars ceremonies where many of the world’s most glamorous and beautiful celebrities have their photos taken and show their latest fashions!
From school proms to weddings and nightclubs red carpet runners are a common feature at many special events today, giving guests a feeling of importance and status and giving the occasion an air of high importance!
Can’t Get Enough of that Red Carpet Glamour?
The plot of the red carpet has been the same since Douglas Fairbanks walked Hollywood’s first crimson plank 92 years ago. The question has always been, to paraphrase Melissa Rivers, how do you make each carpet a little bit different?
