While the awards show will, of course, be the star of the evening, you can all feel like celebrities yourselves while watching it. Use a party palette of gold, black, touches of red and lots of sparkle!

Incorporate themed decorations everywhere, such as miniature Oscar statuettes amidst glittery votives on your table setting (1) and a giant balloon with gold calligraphy (5) as party “signage” over your food and drinks buffet. A stunning backdrop of gold-sequined fabric spells instant star quality!

Since you’ll all be glued to screen while you party, prepare an easy to serve menu. Pasta Bolognese (6) would make a flavorful and filling main dish, accompanied by a salad and side dishes (see our suggested recipe links at the end of this post). For a fancy beverage, consider a dessert cocktail like Raspberry Popsicles with Champagne (3), paired with Red Carpet Cupcakes topped with sparkly stars (4). And for party favors, “award” each guest with Oscar-shaped cookies (2) to take home.
