Golden Globe Party Invitations
© lovetoeatandtravel.com

Be creative with your invitations — use nominated Movies, Actors, TV Dramas or Comedies in your text, e.g.

Carol and Mad Max the Martian request the pleasure of your company at this year's Golden Globes Spotlight Party. Come as your favorite star, movie character or director. Enjoy decadent hot hors d'oeuvres, yummy desserts — and all the champagne you can drink, but go easy — you don't want to end up a Trainwreck. It'll be a Joy to see you. If traveling from out of town, we recommend you stay at The Revenant Hotel. RSVP to The Big Short — password is Spy... you get the idea!

If you don't want the expense of buying printed Golden Globe Party invitations, you can always print your own. If you want to go high-tech, use Eventbrite.com — the online service can be used to send free invitations, or you can charge for tickets to your event. You can also make the event public or private. Other options include sending an email, using Facebook.

Golden Globe Party Decorations
Go Hollywood — decorate your house with "Award Trophy Statuettes," "Director's Clapboards," customizable "Walk of Fame Stars," "Lifesize Celebrity Standup" movie legends (Marilyn Monroe, Austin Powers, Elvis and other Hollywood favorites).

Red Carpet & Digital Pics/Video
For a fun "Red Carpet" effect, get a Red Carpet "Runner" for your entranceway and take Digital Pics or a Video of your guests as they arrive. Set your dining room/coffee tables with bright red runners, sprinkled with black and gold confetti stars.

Videos and Comments
Upload your Digital Party Pictures for Free to Flickr, Facebook, Instagram, Shutterfly, Twitter or Google Photos and upload your Video to YouTube after your Election Party to share with your family, friends and co-workers. Post comments and updates on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram to share what is happening real-time.

Free Video Conferencing
For those people who can't be at your Golden Globe Party (especially your overseas friends and family), set up a FREE Web Conference using Skype or Google Hangouts — that way they can participate live during the event. We use Skype for our FREE International Video Calls, Meetings, Parties and Conferences.

It's all in the detail. Make High Quality Video calls on Skype – FREE

Golden Globe Ballots & Prizes
Pass out Golden Globe Ballots and have your guests cast their votes prior to the Awards ceremony. Offer a fun gift to all the winners and a Grand Prize to the person who gets the most categories right.

Fun Gifts & Party Favors
Put together a "Hollywood Stars" Gift Tote Bag of goodies — be creative with your gifts. We're not talking expensive freebie "designer swag" like the movie and TV stars usually get — you don't have to spend a fortune if you know where to shop. Go to the "Dollar Stores" or Target for token gifts and candies.

Give out Fun "Hollywood Stars" Party Favors. Hollywood Magnets make fun gifts for homes, lockers, dorm rooms or offices — buy just one, or save with packs of 10 or 100.

Golden Globe Party Themes
Depending on how formal or casual you want your party to be, here are a few Golden Globe Party Theme suggestions:

Formal:" Black Tie" / "Favorite Movie or TV Star"
(Drama or Comedy)

Be creative and have everyone dress as their "Favorite Movie or TV Personality or Comedian" or opt for a Formal "Black-Tie"
event — rent a Designer Dress, Jewelry& Accessories.

"Black Tie,  Blue Jeans,
Red Carpet"

Host a Semi-Formal "Black Tie, Blue Jeans, Red Carpet" event and give guests the option of dressing "up or down."

Formal/Semi-Formal Menu
"Chilled Martinis, Champagne, Strawberries & Decadent Finger Foods"
Whip up a batch of chilled Martinis and keep the bubbly flowing — Champagne and Strawberries.

Fun Finger Foods
Plan a fun menu of
decadent "finger foods" and hors d'oeuvres... and fabulous desserts. Here are a few ideas:

  • Mini Blinis topped with Crème Fraiche and Caviar
  • Ahi Tuna on Wasabi Crackers
  • Smoked Salmon & Dill Canapes
  • Crab-stuffed Mushrooms
  • Sui Mai Dim Sum
  • Assorted Sushi
  • Roasted Peppers Tapenade Crostini
  • Grape Tomato, Fresh Basil & seasoned Mozzarella (on colored toothpicks)
  • Melon-wrapped Proscuitto
  • Chilled Jumbo Prawns with Cocktail Sauce
  • Camembert/Brie atop Pear/Apple Slices (brush w/lemon juice to prevent browning)
  • Mixed Olives
  • Roasted Asparagus Spears
  • Spinach Balls
  • Garlic Mushrooms
  • Goat Cheese Bites
  • Spanakopita Pastries
  • Fresh Berries & Whipped Cream
  • Chocolate Truffles
  • Coconut Macaroons
  • Fudge Brownies

Costco and Trader Joe's both offer a wide variety of delicious hors d'oeuvres, fun munchies, fabulous desserts, Champagnes and fine wines.

Catered Event / Entertainment
If you don't have the time — and aren't worried about a budget — hire a caterer to handle "all the details" for you.
For more elaborate parties, hire Celebrity Look-a-likes (Marilyn Monroe, Elvis) to mingle among your guests.

Casual Chic:
"Golden Globe Bash"
Keep your Golden Globes Party simple — make it a fun "Golden Globes Bash" and dress "Casual Chic."

"Golden Globe Bash" Menu
Whip up something easy for a large group (buffet style works well)

  • Lamb & Rosemary Shepherd's Pie
  • Poached Salmon
  • Mac 'n Cheese
  • Lasagne
  • Irish Beef Stew
  • Chicken Pot Pie
  • Chili Con Carne
  • Baked Ziti
  • Enchilada Casserole
  • Chicken Curry
  • Roasted Vegetables
  • Sweet Potato Fries
  • Vegetable Tempura
  • Portobello Mushrooms
  • Greek Salad

Serve a decadent dessert:

  • "Make-Your-Own Ice-Cream Sundae Bar"
  • Assorted Cheesecakes
  • Cream Puffs with Chocolate Sauce
  • Tiramisu
  • Chocolate Cake
  • Banana Cream Pie
  • Fruit Tarts
  • Giant Chocolate-covered Strawberries

Wine Selection & Quantity
Depending on your budget, you have several options regarding wine selection.

Tip: Allow approximately a 1/2 bottle to one bottle of wine per person for a three-hour party.

For an "upscale" Golden Globe Party (with wine aficionados), splurge on a selection of "fine" red and white wines.

For a "casual chic" Golden Globe Party, offer a variety of good mid-priced red and white wines.

For a "limited budget" Golden Globe Party, buy a case of Charles Shaw "Two-Buck Chuck" wines from Trader Joe's — at under $30, these good table wines are an excellent value. We like the Cabernets and Merlots. Or ask your guests to "BYOB" — bring a bottle of their favorite wine or whatever they'd like to drink.

Be sure to have plenty of sodas, soft drinks, bottled water and coffee on hand for non-drinkers and "designated drivers.

"Golden Globe Pot Luck"
Better yet...host a casual "Golden Globes Pot Luck Party." Pot Lucks are a lot of fun, especially if you're on a budget.

"Golden Globe Pot Luck" Menu
Make a big batch of Popcorn and have everyone bring a dish (appetizer, salad, entree, dessert...and what they want to drink).

Some additional food ideas include: assorted Costco and Trader Joe's hors d'oeuvres:

  • Crab Cakes
  • Coconut Shrimp
  • BBQ Chicken Wings
  • Mini Quiches
  • Potato Skins
  • Assorted Cheeses, Veges, Dips & Crackers
  • Dim Sum
  • Fresh Fruit Salads
  • Beppo's Thin-Crust Pizza
  • Max's Deli food
  • In & Out Burgers
  • Hot Dogs
  • Mixed Nuts
  • Mini Brownies
  • Krispy Kreme Donuts

Whatever you do...have FUN!
