Oscars Party

The Oscars are this weekend and I will be tuning in to see if my favorite movies from this year win. I've actually seen all of the best film nominees this year. That rarely happens. All the buzz got me thinking about an Oscar party. I'm not sure anything can really top the full on red carpet experience at the party I attended last year but here are some of my favorite festive ideas for the occasion anyway.

No movie themed party would be complete without popcorn but this idea steps it up a bit. With sweet mix ins, a variety of sprinkled toppings, and fancy popcorn boxes, the popcorn bar is ready for its close up. Okay. That was cheesy. No more movie industry cliches.

Cupcakes with Oscar themed toppers are the perfect dessert. You can find some cute ones here.


Filling out a ballot and competing with your guests for most correct predictions will add a little excitement. Think about adding incentive with a prize for the winner. 


Adding photos of the nominees to your cocktail straws is a festive way to incorporate the theme of the night.

Do you have an annual Oscar party? What are your favorite ideas for decorating/food? Be sure and check out the Friday Happy Hour post this week (just click the Food page on the bar at the top of the page or click the link in this paragraph) where I've curated a group of yummy champagne cocktails great for any Oscar shindig.
