Oscar Party!

Since the Oscars are on Sunday, here is my Oscar post from a few years ago! I've added in this years printable ballot.

 


While I mainly watch the Oscars to mock them




I do enjoy the fashion




... and the betting aspect
(I won last year!)


So why not celebrate with a party?




It's been awhile since I had a themed party that wasn't a holiday...




I think the last one was a Lost Party.


So here are a few ideas in case you want to host your very own Oscar Party:


I like to keep party decorations in plastic bags like this so I can reuse them each year.  
 
A few of these items I got at Party City



but anything gold or silver - you can find at the dollar store.




They have tons of decorations like this - they're multipurpose! 

If you have any gold/glitter type of New Year's decorations tucked away some of those may work as well. 




Popcorn makes a great snack!

These gourmet flavored popcorn recipes look really good!




 Theater Box Candy is always fun to hand out to guests. Check your local dollar store for these. 


 For something more formal, how about this chocolate ganache cake?

It always comes out great! It's even better if you make it the day before.

This year though, I'm making something like this.



Champagne goes great with cake.




Oscar ballots and Oscar bingo are a must!



And voila! You have an Oscar Party.
