5 Ways to Prep for the 2017 Oscars

The 2017 Oscars are just around the corner and if you’re like us, hosting a viewing party is a must! So, we put together a few ways you can prepare for the biggest award show of the season. From knowing what’s in the running to the refreshments necessary, it’s all here so you won’t miss a beat this Sunday evening.

1. Have Viewing Party Snacks on Hand

Code for: popcorn! (Turn it into unicorn popcorn for extra fun). Cheese & crackers and chocolate almond butter cups are also great finger food options.

2. Stock Up on Champagne

Nothing says viewing party more than a bottle of bubbly! We’ll be popping open Piper-Heidsieck champagne.

3. Watch the Best Picture Nominated Films

There’s nothing like watching your favorite film win – so make sure you have seen the nominees! Hacksaw Ridge, Arrival, Hell or High Water, and Manchester by the Sea are available to rent. And there’s still time to catch LaLa Land, Hidden Figures, Fences, and Moonlight in theaters!

4. Get Cozy!

Crab the blankets and cuddle up for the big show! If you’re hosting guests, bring out the floor pillows and create the perfect viewing seating area.

5. Make Your Predictions

Now that you’ve seen the films and have snacks on hand, predict the winners! You can print out a ballot here and see if your picks align with the experts!
