How To Throw a fun and exciting Oscar Party

The Oscars are this Sunday and most of the buzz seems to be around Leonardo DiCaprio, who may finally win his long overdue award (shouldn’t he have won the award five years ago?). If you are a pop culture junkie and plan to host a party, here are a few tips for making your event a memorable one.

 

Popcorn bar: clear out a table and put lots of popcorn and a load of fun topping. Throw some jalapenos, honey, tabasco sauce, butter, yummy worms—anything that might taste great with a bowl of popcorn.

 

Champagne: nothing says Oscars like a glass of bubbly. Find a tasty recipe or just drink it on ice. Yes, it’s a Sunday and everyone has work the next day, but the drink can add a bit of style and classes to an Oscar party.

 

Games: everyone loves to show off their pop culture and movie knowledge, so give your guest the opportunity. Write movie quotes from all the nominated films on an index card and challenge your guest to name as many as possible. Give a prize to anyone that produces a perfect score.

 

How to Sound Proof Your Apartment Against Outside Noise

If your apartment has been noisy for whatever reason—loud neighbors or construction work going on—here are a few tips for sound proofing your home.

 

Thick drapes: hang thick drapes in your bedroom or living room to help absorb outside noise. Something as simple as this can make a huge difference.

 

Decorations: hang sound absorbing materials like fabrics and cork on your walls. Of course, this should be done with a stylish DIY project to help create a fun, yet useful piece of décor.

 

Furniture: arrange your furniture so that it block noise coming from the problem area. If your issue is with the balcony put furniture in a layout that will absorb the most sound coming from that area. This might seem small, but it will go a long way in reducing noise.
