Decorating tips for your Oscar-themed soiree

Hollywood's most glamorous night is almost here! Even if you can't be on the red carpet, you can still enjoy the glitz and glamour of Oscar night in the company of your friends. Check out some of our creative tips which will win you the Academy Award for hosting! 

  • Decadent desserts: Impress your guests with an array of sweet treats that coincide with the theme of movies. Movie-theater inspired candy and "red-velvet carpet cupcakes" are just some suggestions for your party. 
  • Glamorous Bar: No party would be complete without festive drinks. "We plan on keeping things simple by serving champagne, but with a fun touch, attaching photos of the Oscar-nominated actors and actresses to straws. We simply printed out pictures of their faces, cut them into circles and attached them to the straws," writes lifestyle blogger Emily Schuman in her popular blog Cupcakes & Cashmere.
  • Metallic accents: Metallic accents are chic and oh-so glamorous for Oscar night! Furthermore, this trend is applicable every day of the year. To make use of this style, try creating a chic centerpiece to impress all of your guests. Shimmery silver and white décor mixed with feathers exudes old-school Hollywood glamour. Try adding gold curtains or drapes to your dining room windows, symbolic of the shade of an Oscar trophy.
