Hi friends! Are you excited – the Oscars air this Sunday, February 24th! Do you watch? I have to be honest, I have a thing for watching all of the glitz and the glamour. And though I’ll likely be viewing it from the comfort of my own couch this year, I have attended and hosted FUN Academy Awards parties in the past. And to me, you need three elements: food, fun and fashion!
First up is food! Finger foods are best. Small sandwiches, fun cocktails or mocktails, but be sure to add some bling! This gorgeous gold cake or star brownies would do the trick. Or how about the adorable cookies! Even just one or two of these touches will send your party over the top!
Next up is FUN! Start out with some fun and classy invitations! Then create a photo booth and buy or DIY some fun props for the pics! Whip up some fancy programs or give folks ballots to fill out with their picks.
Last up is fashion, which we’re sharing with you in our post Oscar Fashion + PEOPLE Magazine 2013 Oscars Double Issue! Head on over to check out last year’s top Red Carpet trends and even enter to WIN a $20 Target giftcard so you can pick up your own issue when it hits the shelves on March 1st!
