entertaining for the Oscars

The Oscars are tomorrow night, and hosting a red carpet watching party is so much fun!  I love getting together with a few girlfriends and noshing on a few fun hors d’oeuvres while watching the fashion parade of celebrities unfold on tv.   I want to share with you some fun and simple decorating ideas for hosting an academy awards party. One idea is to sprinkle around some framed photos of your favorite movie stars.  You can just fill small silver frames with photos cut from magazines or ones printed from your computer.    
Add a dazzle of gold to some plain white helium balloons.
Wrap some glass votives with some old 35mm negatives.
I love this one!
Cut out a few sparkly Oscar statuettes 
and highlight them with candle light. 
Create some specific Oscar wine charms.
This one is creative,
make your own Oscars with old Ken dolls!
Offer your guests a popcorn bar with a variety of flavors. 
Movie props are always fun.
Party stores usually have some available.
Buy or make a few starry garlands. 
A red napkin represents the red carpet,
then all you need is a white folded napkin with a gold sticker and a touch of red ribbon for this table setting.
Here's how to fold a napkin like an envelope.
Enjoy your night at the Oscars!

ciao! Fabiana

  2. So many fun ideas. I'm with you, I like the candle wrapped with film. My second is the gold painted balloons. I'm going to paint some balloons for my next party! Fun post. Thank you for the ideas.
