throw a stylish oscar party

Gather the gals (and fellas if they are willing) and throw an Oscar themed party to watch the big show. There are plenty of special touches you can do such as a signature champagne cocktail and setting a dress code urging your friends to be in their Sundays best. Serving stylish bite sized food allows everyone to snack freely.  Let's face it watching the movies these actors star in allows them to be so rich, so sit back and pour yourself a glass of champagne and enjoy! You know the stars will be sipping bubbly and probably drunk off one glass after weeks of fasting to fit in their skin tight gowns. A fun way to keep the guests interested in the show when it gets dull (aka during the behind the scenes awards of people you never heard of) is to place small wages on your best actor, actress & movie nominations. Below is an example of a stylish and fun fete with printable decor from one of my favorite blogs - Hostess with the Mostess.  And since the Oscars are just a little over a month away there is plenty of time to plan your own little soiree. I also included some additional fun decorations on how you can turn your house into a small replica of the famous event - happy planning!

Delish Champagne cocktail ideas can be found here!

Bold colors like yellow and black with modern shapes perfectly theme a fun night to watch the Oscars!


put all 2012 movie nominations on each wrap around


folding the napkin like a evening purse is easy & cute

serve the popcorn in all different flavors - I especially adore kettle corn



veuve clicquot's gold label bubbly is a perfect match to the theme & these cute little tags on your glasses will help you from losing your glass


if you choose to do a sit down dinner the table setting below is super elegant but you can also transform this into a fabulous buffet table for small bites to snack leisurely
