Oscar Party Ideas

    Posted by  ·  March 4, 2010

    I would love to host an Oscar Party. It isn’t going to happen this year, but if I did have an Oscar Party I would…

    send these cool invitations that can be printed for free at Twig & Thistle.

    A table decorated with photo cylinders like Hostess with the Mostess would be lovely.

    I would print these ballots and popcorn bags also from Twig & Thistle—- isn’t she amazing!

    It would be fun to play How About Orange’s Oscar Bingo during the awards.

    The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has an Oscar Night Essentials Party Kit including recipes, party ideas, printable ballots, bingo cards and cross word puzzles.

    I am always looking for appetizer inspiration! Delish and Woman’s Day serve up some yummy ideas. Food TV shares some best supporting snacks. Food and Wine Magazine doesn’t disappoint with their 10 Oscar Appetizers. Food and Wine Magazine also has a Make Ahead Cocktail  Party!

    Movie themed food would be a must! Epicurious and Allrecipes have themed dinners for each of the nominated movies.

    Gourmet and that’s the spirit share the perfect cocktails to pay tribute to the nominated movies and actors.

    We could also dine on tuxedo strawberries.

    These Oscar Award Cookies from Bakerella would make a spectacular statement.

    How about these Oscar statutes that were made from white chocolate and then painted with edible gold made by My Little Cottage in the Making. Served with a slice of cheesecake and a chocolate “Hollywood.” Simply pipe melted chocolate onto parchment paper, allow to cool. Once hard, peel away from parchment paper and embellish the dessert.

    My Little Cottage in the Making sent her guests home with some swag –bag full of candy, a bag of popcorn, a movie gift certificate, a Hollywood clap sign key chain and a pin in the shape of the pink stars on Hollywood Walk of Fame. I would want to do this also!

    I would also borrow some of Cathy Filian‘s  great ideas for Oscar party decor, food and fun!

      Hello,
      Some ideas to decorate in style include: life size cut outs of famous actresses and actors, movie reel tins centerpieces (type 'movie reel centerpiece' in search), large clapboards that you personalize, 'walk of fame' stars (you could make your own and include family and friends names on them), and of course balloons with a Hollywood theme. Sprinkle colorful 'star confetti' on the tables, including the serving tables.

      I am with you!

      Oscars party? Not at my little "cube" !!! I must admit, any edible gold baffles me. In this case, how à propo.

      Cindy, if you don't mind, I'd love to call to your attention some clever Oscar related recipe titles such as Inglorious Custards or Up In Éclair. These being shared with the world courtesy of Hyundai.

      we have taken old happy meal toys, painted them gold & glued them to an upside down black cup - they make great "oscars"
