It's Oscar time again! I have to say, I think the Oscars have gotten so big because they come at such a great time. People have recovered from the holidays, shoved the New Year's resolution to the wayside and are ready to party! As much as I don't like to admit it, I can't help but be enthralled by the Hollywood glamour and the Oscars lets me indulge in the opulence for one night.
So, I've put together a glamorous Oscar Party roundup board to give you inspiration for your party. What I love about this particular board is that since it is not too "theme" driven, these items could be used year round for any party that incorporates a gold theme. (Think New Year's, an anniversary party, a baby or bridal shower, or a graduation.) Thinking outside of the traditional red carpet or movie ticket theme can elevate your party to the next level.
A sparkly tablecloth can make a big impression when used on your food table (and would totally be reusable come Christmastime). And I love the idea of putting popcorn and desserts in fancy glasses. (You can use plastic champagne flutes from PartyCity.) Items people can pick up and eat individually such as cookies, truffles, and desserts in individual containers are always a hit and I especially love how the strawberry shortcake would add a pop of red into the event. (Not to mention that you can purchase and pre-assemble all of the components of strawberry shortcake for an easy no-bake dessert--score! The Cozy Apron has a great boozy recipe!)
But I think what really helps make a party memorable are the special details. Sending out a chic invitation and having touches such as gold doilies or drink stirrers make the party unique. And it doesn't have to break the bank, DIY printables such as cupcake toppers, food tent cards and games are a great way to add a unique touch to your party without a hefty price tag. I've created some below:
No matter what you choose, remember to have fun--after all, you're not the one that has to squeeze into a fancy gown and give a speech!
