Oscar/Academy Award Party Ideas

Post by Sige »

So, our office is hosting a gala, the theme we chose is Oscars/Academy Awards and yours truly is in charge of the decor.

I have some pretty good ideas, but I really want to find, or have made, a life sized cardboard "Brad Pitt" and "Angelina Jolie". Any suggestions as to where I may be able to get this done?

You can search for celebrity cutouts on this site - prices vary and not sure how long to ship.

Party City has cutouts but I think they are more the animated movie characters. They do have a section for Hollywood Movie Night, etc.

You could probably get Brenda's Blueprint to print it, if you find a hi res picture to start from. Then get cardboard from an appliance store and glue it on.

If you have a S. O., then one of you go as Harvey Weinstein and the other go as #MeToo.

I tend to see the hi-lights the next day if I am interested, since I can't watch something 5+ hours long.

before someone brings up my sports watching, at least it's exciting... awards shows is like watching paint dry.
