The Oscars are one of the most anticipated nights of the year in my family….well, at least for my mother, sister and I. The men can be found running to the hills trying to escape the red carpet gossip. Ever since I was a little girl, we would all gather around the TV and watch the red carpet from start to finish, as well as the awards show itself. Between us friends, it is not unusual for my sister to put on an evening gown for the occasion (with her slippers)!
If you are like us, half the fun is betting on who will take home the statue. There are so many darling free printables out there for you to download. You can find many of them (along with more Oscar party ideas) on my Pinterest board. I just love this ballot that One Charming Party designed.
We keep it simple – carryout is typically involved so no one misses a second of the show. But it is fun to dress up our cocktails with some festive straws. I love how the Glitter Guide embellished these charming polka dot ones with gold tinsel. I may serve up some theme-appropriate desserts as well. I love these ideas from Amy Atlas: star shaped brownies or cookies, cupcakes topped with licorice rolls to look like film wheels. Or perhaps I will serve popcorn in these charming paper cones from Birds Party:
