Host an Oscar Party

We’re in the midst of award season, which means we’ve spent the last few weekends obsessing over the latest red carpet fashion and discussing who won what. But everyone knows the best part of any award show is sharing it with a few friends—we love any excuse for a party! Celebrate the Oscars this Sunday by hosting a gathering at your house. Here’s a few snapshots from a party Allison hosted during last year’s Oscars that was originally featured in the Star Ledger. Bring on the glamour!

Oscar5The invites: If you have the budget, custom invitations are a great way to set the tone for an award party. Hand-making them is also an option—incorporate red and gold to fit the Oscar theme. Take it a step further and request formal attire or a color dress code.

Oscar4Go gold: Gold spray paint, glitter glue and adhesives are your friends! Glam decor doesn’t have to be expensive. Check out a dollar store for inexpensive stem candles and votive candles.


Use what you have: Borrow a family member’s china, pull out your fancy cloth napkins and some of your old Christmas decor. Fresh flowers are a good way to add interest to the table.

Oscar1Plan your own award ceremony: Engage your guests with games. Hand out prizes for the person who guesses the most winners or is best-dressed.
