The 72nd Golden Globe Awards are upon us, this Saturday (11 January 2015)! We’re so stoked for another round of the Fey-Poehler combo, and for all the awesome films and shows that we hope will take home the awards.
Ignore the miserable weather outside, and host your own Golden Globes viewing party! You don’t need to plan very far, you just need a few elements to make a kickass couch party. Check it out, after the cut:
Decorate with: DIY Gold Stars
Don’t have time to spruce up the pad to make it look like a glitzy ballroom? You’ll only need to make these gold stars to put around the TV screen, and you can make ’em with cereal boxes! You can even make tiny ones and fill vases/glasses, and place around the room for an instant glam feel. Full instructions here!
Forget buttered or caramel popcorn, go big or go home for your Golden Globes viewing party. Shoutout to Buzzfeed for five popcorn recipes to make up a gorgeous popcorn bar, because what’s a couch party without popcorn? We’re talking about Parmesan Garlic, Maple Bacon.. your guests will be fighting over these babies. Full recipes here.
Beer Cheese Spread
Who doesn’t love spread? While we watch Hollywood stars pretend to enjoy their food, enjoy a beer cheese spread that will go with crackers, pretzel sticks, your fingers… Just don’t double dip! Just blitz the ingredients, before adding the beer until it becomes a smooth consistency. Don’t forget to chill for as long as you can, to develop flavor. Full recipe here!
Spiced Grand Marnier Hot Chocolate
We’re not thrilled about the cold outside, so instead of a fizzy cool drink to enjoy with the Golden Globes, get cozy with a spiced Grand Marnier hot chocolate! It’s rich and spicy, with a touch of that gorgeous orange flavor to complete this boozy cup of hugs. Don’t forget to top with decadent amounts of fresh whipped cream! Your guests will be tripping over to the kitchen to make many, many more cups. Full recipe here!
Pick Your Winners!
One of the best parts about viewing parties is predicting the winners of all the categories, especially with an awards show as long as the Golden Globes! Pop Sugar has a printable voting ballot that you can pass to all your guests. The person who has the most guesses right can walk away with more boozy hot chocolate! Get your printable ballot here.
When In Doubt..
Don’t forget to check our vendors out, so that they can give you a helping hand to make this viewing party happen! Awards season is here again, y’all. We’re so excited!
