Throw Your Own Buzz-Worthy Oscar Watch Party with Goodwill!


It’s Oscar Season and the internet is abuzz with award fever. What better way to celebrate the Academy Awards than host your own “Watch Party.” We’re not suggesting you open a bag of chips and salsa and call it a party. We’re saying with a little planning, a little imagination, and a little help from Goodwill, YOU’LL be what all the buzz is about!

First things first, you want to make a spectacular entrance – and that starts with your outfit. Goodwill has tons of red-carpet ready dresses and formalwear at prices that won’t involve teary speeches at check-out.

If you’ve always wanted to visit one of our boutique stores, now may be the perfect time to find that Oscar-worthy ensemble. Take a look at our 10th Street location, featured in the video below, to find out why our customers love to shop gw Boutique.

Next, let’s talk about the real star of the show – the food! Nothing better to get you in a celebratory mood than bites and bubbly, and Goodwill has all of the dishes and glassware you need to show off your skills. Find everything from an assortment of champagne flutes starting at just .99 cents to serving pieces with Academy Awards flair. We also found some recipes in one of our book sections with inspiration starting at $1.99. Or, you can make it really easy on yourself and invite guests to bring their own dish and vote on Best Appetizer, Best Entrée, and Best Dessert.

With just a little DIY fun and gold spray paint, you can create your own awards statues, complete with golden design. First, we selected an assortment of kitschy items at our local Goodwill – similar to that iconic silhouette – for $1.99 each. Next, we picked up a handful of 4” round, wood plaques ($2.99 total) at the local crafts store and a can of metallic gold spray paint ($6.99). A little glue and two coats later – voila! – personalized Oscar statue.
