This being said, I have not held a full-on Oscar party yet. I usually get together with a few girlfriends to enjoy some wine and give our opinions/yell at the tv during the red carpet- and this year is no different. Seeing this set up makes me really excited for possibly planning a party next year. I would love to incorporate a pool to see who guesses the winners and maybe add in some delicious desserts in a nod to the nominees- this year I'm making Black Swan brownies and I believe there was mention of True Grits being served. Since variety is the spice of life, I was really excited to see this post with some great ideas on creating your own affordable (key word!) Oscars party. Creating a movie snack area with popcorn, sno-cones, and milk duds will definitely be a hit. And this post offers more great ideas plus an Oscars themed cake! It really is up to you on how elaborate you want to be- from Oscar invitations to prizes to framing past winners as decor, there are so many options. Whatever you decide to do, I hope you enjoy Hollywood's biggest night as much as I know I will!
