You’re on your way to enjoying a fantastic Grammy Awards Party.
Party Like a Rock Star!
The Grammy Awards have always been a show that nobody wants to miss! We love
to watch the rich and famous interact with one another looking fabulous. Great musical
performances, entertaining hosts, and the thrill of finding out who the Grammy Award winners
are have viewers glued to the television. Why not gather up your friends and family and enjoy
this enchanting night together? It is the perfect excuse to throw a marvelous party of your own,
where you and your guests are the stars of the show. Gig Salad can help you plan a night that is
just as amazing as the Grammy Awards themselves!
Dress to Impress
Get the buzz going for your Grammy Awards party by sending out creative and eye catching
invitations. A unique idea
is to make the invitations look like back stage passes or tickets to the show. Also, making your
invitations in the shape of a Grammy or simply making them metallic, sparkly, or fancy is a great
way to get people’s attention. Make sure to add the dress code on your invitations. A black tie
affair is exciting, but having your guests dress up as their favorite rock or pop star can be even
Glitz and Glamour
Make sure your party decor
is as flashy and fabulous as the Grammys! Black, gold, and silver is a perfect color scheme
to use. Balloons, streamers,
and confetti are a great way to glitz up your party and get people excited. Have black glitter top
hats set on tables that guests can have fun with. Put up posters of your favorite mix of old and
new Hollywood artists. Also, decorate with music memorabilia, instruments, and records and
large music notes spray painted gold. Another fun way to make your guests feel like they are
part of the action at this year’s Grammy Awards is to have life size cutouts of your favorite music
stars. Along with that, roll out your own red carpet for your V.I.P.s. Hire a photographer to take pictures of your
guests as they enter the party to really make them feel like stars!
Food for the Fabulous
In Hollywood, the tinier the food is, the more popular it is. Cook accordingly and have
mini appetizers on silver platters to maintain the Grammy vibe at your party. Treats like mini
quiche, caviar on toast, shrimp, mini cheeseburgers or sandwiches, and stuffed mushrooms
are great examples. For desserts, go with fancy items like flavored cheesecake, tiramisu,
creme brulee, or chocolate covered strawberries to impress your party goers. Cooking food
that is fit for a star is difficult so feel free to hire a caterer to ensure everything will be delicious. Champagne, sparkling wine, and
other ritzy mixed drinks are perfect for your party. Hire a bartender
to make sure all your drinks taste wonderful. Finally, make
your guests feel even more pampered by having servers walk around with trays of appetizers
and drinks to offer them.
Grammy Fun and Games
The Grammy Awards will be the main form of entertainment at your party, but do not forget
to fill the time before, after, and during commercial breaks with fun too! To begin, hand out
Grammy ballots to your guests when they arrive at the party. Whatever guest picks the most
correct winners gets a prize. Name that tune is another fun game that is great for commercial
breaks. Next, since music is what the Grammy Awards are all about, be sure to have great
music of your own. Think about having a top 40 band, tribute
band, party band, event DJ, or cover band at your party. If you want to add some
star power to your party, hire a Beatles tribute band, Barbra Streisand, Elvis, Cher, Michael Jackson, Neil Diamond, Ozzy Osbourne, or
impersonator to get the party going. A dance troupe is also an exciting way to entertain your guests. Another fun form
of live entertainment is to have your guests be the performers by singing karaoke or playing rock star or guitar hero.
With all these options, there won’t be a dull moment at your party!
Once you send out the invitations, decorate your space, figure out your menu, and pick out
the entertainment, your Grammy Party is ready to start rocking! If you want a little help getting
your party together, hire an event
planner to make sure your event is a success. Don’t forget to use Gig Salad to help guide
you through your party planning, making it quick, fun, and easy!
