  • Send save the dates: Whether you send them via email or in the mail put all the information on it and tie in with your theme. 
  • Play nominated soundtracks: Great to set the mood when your guests arrive and to play before the awards show begins.
  • Champagne for everyone: A splash of bubbly kicks of the celebration or mix pomegranate juice and soda water as a non-alcoholic option.
  • The ballot game: Download and print the big nominated categories and give prizes to the 3 guests who guess the most winners right.
  • Party favors: Who doesn't like party favors? It's the last opportunity to tie in your theme and give your guests a fun parting gift.
