Celebrities can always be seen walking the red carpet at Hollywood events, rocking their beautiful dresses and posing for the camera. I especially love to see when photographers get every angle of celebs outfits and shoes – the whole 360 spin and shoe cam. The Academy Awards, nicknamed “The Oscars” specifically is a huge event in the celebrity world. The most prestigious movie stars get together to celebrate their accomplishments, which leads to an insanely glamorous and luxurious event. Seeing The Academy Awards on television isn’t enough for everyone – some dream of being there in the mix of the event and this is where a red carpet party comes into play.

The aim of throwing a red carpet or academy awards party is to recreate the entire event with friends, changing the atmosphere to match the one of Hollywood. To kick off this red carpet party, there are some things that are required:
- The invitation
- Dress code
- The red carpet
- Step and repeat banner
- Red carpet decor
- Food and drink
Inform all invitees to attend your event in their best formal ballroom attire. When you create your invitations, you should make sure to put the dress code on there, informing your guests to play the part. This means that women will wear long, formal gowns and men will wear their fanciest tuxedo. Think about what you see on the red carpet – this is the type of outfit you are going for. If you do not have a gown or tuxedo that will “fit” the event, try searching for websites that allow you to rent for the night. For example, Rent The Runway is a great website for renting dresses!

Shop around for a red carpet long enough to cover the entrance of your venue. The red carpet is the first thing that guests will see when they walk into your event, so make it noticeable! If you can, have lights that amplify the red carpet and make your guests feel camera ready. Another fun touch would be hiring photographers as “press” for the party!

Red Carpet Decor
Red carpet decor is important to set the tone of the event. The decor includes flowers, tables, tablecloths, and more. A great, special touch to add to your event is a sword from Swords of Northshire. Swords of Northshire has replica movie swords on their website, which would be a great addition to your Academy Awards party. For example, they have a Braveheart replica sword. Braveheart won an Academy Award for best picture, best director, best cinematography, best sound editing, best makeup and hairstyle, best director – motion film, and many other awards. Another movie replica sword on their website is from Kill Bill. Your guests will be in awe of the high-quality replica sword and the good thing about purchasing a sword for your party is that it will be of use after the event too. All of the swords are hand forged and battle ready, ensuring that you have the best product possible. Swords of Northshire has many fantastic reviews on their website to help you feel more comfortable with your purchase, too. These two reviews are just two out of over 375 reviews on their website: “I collect all kinds of swords, and I can honestly say the one I just got from swords of northshire is my favorite and one of the best quality blades I’ve ever gotten thank you so much!” “My sword is amazing. Better then I expected. I would recommend anyone looking for a sword of any type to look here first.”
