The Oscars are two days away! Two. Days. For everyone who is as obsessed with the Oscars as I am, you can appreciate the excitement I’m feeling right now. What is Emma Stone going to wear? Who is going to trip going up the stairs to accept their award? Who will Benedict Cumberbatch photo bomb (hopefully everyone)?
Every year I have some people over and host an Oscars party to celebrate all those weird and amazing moments. Although the decorations and food may change, one thing that is a staple at these gatherings is Oscar Bingo. I did this for the first time a few years ago and everyone went bananas over it. It’s such a simple, fun game to get everyone involved…and the prize doesn’t hurt either. There’s lots of free printables on the Internet that have pre-made bingo sheets for you, but it’s easy enough to make your own.
I pulled up a Word document, added a grid, and typed in my own fun squares. Matthew McConaughey says “Alright, Alright, Alright”…my chips are on he does! I also printed my cards on a heavier card stock so they could hold up amongst all the cheers, boos, and party fouls. This year, I was also inspired by my copy of Washi Wonderful by Jenny Doh, and decided to fill in my free square using this versatile tape, as well as adding a few fun pops of color on the bingo card.
The last thing I do to prepare for Sunday is to make sure my date is red-carpet ready. Phillip wears his penguin suit year-round, but that doesn’t take away from his dapperness. Add a tie, and this cat’s ready for his close-up.
