Plan Your Grammy Party!

    Award show season has arrived, which means you've got to pull out those fancy dresses and get ready for some parties! There's no better award show to throw a party for than the Grammy Awards. It's upbeat, fun, and includes some awesome performances that you and your friends should all enjoy together! Here are a few tips and tricks on how you can plan your very own Grammy party!

    Invite Your Friends. Get creative with the way that you invite your friends to your Grammy party! Send out an invitation that looks like a nomination or an award, and make sure to include all of the information about your event! You don't want any confusion among your guests!

    Dress Code. Indicate that your event will be a cocktail party or formal event, so that your guests dress up! This will help create an atmosphere similar to the one at the Grammys, and hey - everyone feels better when they're all dressed up, especially like Grammy go-ers!

    Decor. Depending on the location of your event, there's a lot that you can do to decorate for your Grammy party. Set up a red carpet leading up to the entrance of your venue. If it's in your budget, try to hire a photographer to take photos on the red carpet! Make your guests feel like they are the Grammy nominees. It will make for a great time and a story to talk about later! Keep your decorations classy and elegant: black, gold, and silver are great colors to incorporate for your event decorations.

    Catering. Consider hiring a caterer or private waiters that can come around to guests with h'orderves and food throughout the night. It's a good idea to have this extra help, and if it's in your budget, it's worth it! You don't want to be stressing about cooking and serving your guests, because you want to be able to have a good time yourself. Make sure that your caterers/bartenders are serving martinis, champagne, and other classy cocktails that keep the atmosphere of the Grammys in tact at your party. You want your guests to feel like they are Grammy attendees!

    Entertainment. For a Grammy party, entertainment isn't as important as it may be at another party, simply because you should be playing the Grammys! Make sure that your party venue is able to stream the Grammys on a television, so that your guests can enjoy the show! They probably won't be watching it silently, but it can be on in the background to keep the atmosphere "awards-like!" After the show is over, if it's in your budget, bring a DJ into your party! If not though, make a playlist filled with the Grammy artists of the year and their hit songs!

    With the help of these tips and a little bit more work, you will be able to throw the Grammy party of the year! Make your guests feel like celebrities, and make it as easy as you can on yourself! Don't forget to let us know how it goes, either in a comment below, or on Facebook or Twitter!
