So, who are you wearing?
When you’re walking the red carpet, the person who designed your gown merits a shout out. When you’re hosting an Oscar themed party, you’ll be the one your guests thank – for all of the great decorations, snacks and entertainment. How do you make this event worthy of a standing ovation?
Keep your guests entertained with game like Name that Famous Character. Once the presenters take the stage, hand out Oscar bingo. You know, every time a winner cries (or someone who isn’t J.Law trips)… Create your own version of Madlibs as your guests fill in the blanks to create an outrageous acceptance speech that will be as quoteworthy as Sally Field’s “you really like me!”
And, then, there’s the food. The nominees in the Best Drinks category are…
Champagne. It wouldn’t be the Oscars without champagne, and it’s easy enough to drop a couple of raspberries or strawberries into your flute but why not add a little sparkle with these champagne chantilly shooters?
Or, get a little glamorous with this Red Carpet Glamour Cocktail that was served at the Governor’s Ball.
Or, depart from tradition with a special martini like this one with apple juice, buttershots and a splash of Gloldschlager.
In the category of Best Appetizers…
It’s a tie (a bow tie!) between tuxedo strawberries or tuxedo cheese on crackers.
And, finally… the award we’ve all been waiting for… Best Main Dish!
Put on your thinking caps and get punny, creating a menu based on all of the nominated films. Perhaps some Irish Pasta with Sauce and Cabbage in honor of Brooklyn. Or, a Bridge of (S)pies?
The show may be over but we can’t forget to thank our Award winning desserts – How about oreos painted with edible gold spray?
So pop some popcorn, break out the champagne and roll out the red carpet. Let the viewing begin!
