Throw an Opulent Oscar Event

At the Oscars, Hollywood stars, top movies and high fashion come together for one over-the-top night. The awards are all about the glitz and glam, and so should your viewing party. Read on for our tips to throwing a five-star event.

Food: Think homemade classics revised into hors d’oeuvres. Try ham and cheese croquettes, mini mac ‘n cheese bites and eggplant fries.

For snacks during the show, serve gourmet popcorn in retro-cool bags.

Drinks: Offer red or white wines to guests with hors d’oeuvres. Because a dose of champagne always ups the ante, serve Semifreddo Bellinis with dessert. This fruity and slushy remake of the classic drink will satisfy any sweet tooth.

Dessert: Make Oscar statue cookies! This cookie cutter from gives you the perfect mini golden man. Cut the cookies, bake, ice with vanilla frosting tinted bright yellow and cover with yellow sprinkles.

Games: Before guests arrive, make ballots for everyone to fill out who they expect to win each category. At the end of the night, figure out who predicted the most winners and give them a a set of movie tickets as the prize.

Favors: Put the ballots from the game inside wine glasses for guests to take. Consider personalizing the glasses with “And the winner is…” so guests will always remember your award-winning party.
