The glitz! The glam! Beautiful dresses on beautiful people! The Oscars are a yearly extravaganza of glamour that we lucky regular-folk get to watch from the comfort of our homes. The Oscar party is a tradition that brings together all of our favorite things– food, drink, friends, and friendly competition (those ballots aren’t going to fill themselves out!)
We are so pleased to share blogger Elaine Hargrove’s House of Hargrove Oscar Party Ideas to get you started on the road to an epic Oscar night.
Oscar Party Basics
There are a few basic tenets of a great Oscar party, and they include indulgent food and wine options, a lot of glitter, and gold, gold, gold. Nothing says glitzy like an elegant gold mirrored bar cart, laden with beautiful glasses and bar accessories.
When settling in for a long night of dresses, celebs and Best Song performances, it’s best to load up on rich treats both sweet and savory. From popcorn covered in edible glitter and delicate, buttery palmiers to sumptuous brie on water crackers and tempting artichoke bruschetta, it’s easy to create a delectable spread for your Oscar party guests.
Make the Room the Star
A classic way to display your food and drink is a console table or multifunctional media stand that fits the overall aesthetic of your room and keeps people close to the main attraction– the awards! Accent your room with metallic decor that serves up Oscar gold, but don’t be afraid to mix metals and layer your balloons, banners and other decorations. Of course, don’t forget the Oscar ballots. That would be a “Titanic” mistake!
