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. GigSalad 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 more fun!
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 Rod Stewart 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.
