DIY Oscar Party Part II

February 26th, 2010

★ Update! A 2012 version of Oscar printables (including an invitation and ballot) is now available. Check out the full post here!

As promised here is the rest of the goodies for the DIY Oscar Party! I thought a candy tray would be a fun way to serve your guests and what Oscar party would be complete without a ballot! Mine are designed to let guests make their predictions and keep track during the ceremony. There is a place on the back to record the final score to help you pick a winner if you’re awarding a prize. Also note, not all categories are represented due to space constraints.

Candy Bag Toppers Download
Fill 3 5/16″x5 1/8″ cellophane bags (buy) with candy and staple in the center. Print out candy bag toppers onto solid sticker paper (found at office supply stores), cut to size, fold in half the long way and affix toppers to cellophane bags. Don’t have sticker paper? Just print onto cardstock paper and affix with double-sided tape.

Candy Tray
Inspired by the candy girls at Alt, I thought a candy tray would be a perfect touch to the party. All you need is a white tray and a length of red ribbon. Tie the ends of the ribbon together. The knot should rest behind your neck and the ribbon should go under the front of the tray. Then just fix the ribbon in place with strong tape or thumb tacks!

Ballot Download
Print double-sided onto 8.5×11″ card stock and fold in half length wise. Coordinate with red pens.

    I thought yesterday was good, but you’ve outdone yourself with all the rest of the party goods.

    You are too cute. The ballot is such a good idea! I love it. And I love the idea of classic movie theater snacks. An affordable place to look for trays is any old craft store – but you’d have to paint it yourself.

    Such style!! The “fresh popcorn” bags make me smile. I can’t thank you enough for the Oscar ballot download. It’s perfect. Do you mind me asking what font/size you used in case I wanted to add the additional award categories? Thanks again. I’ve been following your blog for a while but just became an “official” follower.

    Hi Jill! I’m so sorry I couldn’t fit them all on there! It’s odd that there are 10 nominees for best film this year, it’s normally only 5! Sheesh, they don’t make it easy do they? Anyhoo, the red type where I listed the categories is Trade Gothic Light in 8pts and the nominations are Janson Text, Roman in 8pt. Hope that helps and have fun!!!

    Pleasant good

  18. Melissa Says:

    Thank you so much! I love it. I had to share it on my blog!

  19. Emily Says:

    I think this is just about the cutest idea I’ve come across. I’m a sucker for making any tv or sports experience a theme. I made “olympic athlete” finger puppets during the olympics for my viewing parties- that was a hit! But these downloadable ballots and stencils are terrific- thank you! xo

  20. Cindy Mindy Pindy Says:

    Thank you so much for the templates! I always want to do something like this but I’m too lazy and you’ve made it so easy and simple!

  21. Becky P. Says:

    How wonderful! I adore all the details – thank you so much.

  22. Natalie W. Says:

    Are you perhaps going to do a 2011 ballot for the Oscars this year??? My husband saw these posted on your site last year and would LOVE to use them for our little shindig! 🙂

  23. Alison Says:

    I’d also LOVE for you to do a 2011 ballot. Everything is so pretty!

  24. Alison Says:

    One other question..which bags did you use for the red vines? I’d love to buy some. Thanks!

  25. Jessica Says:

    Just remembering how much I enjoyed this Thank You!
