Quintessentially the Oscars

Tomorrow night is the big one, and as I mentioned here, I love awards season.  With the Academy Awards starting in the afternoon, I can hardly contain myself - all the red carpet glamour, Billy Crystal back as host and enough Hollywood glitz to make your eyes hurt!  For the few years we were in London I missed watching and all the excitement of the live show, so I feel this is an even more special year for me this time.  In honour of Oscar, and the great parties I am sure we are all hosting tomorrow night, here are some yummy treats, decorations and party ideas to go with this gold night! What have you got planned? Are any of you hosting parties of your own? 

I love the palette of this table - black, white and gold - very Hollywood, very chic! And to customize people's drinks, you can do as the stars do down the red carpet; have a mini bottle of bubbly with a straw and a personal label. Not too keen on the champers out of a straw, but love the label idea!

Twig & Thistle have some amazing make-your-own party templates available for download ont their website. I love the idea of everyone having their own personal oscar ballot to fill out before the ceremony begins. And what movie party would be complete without a drink (with your own personal tag) and your own personal bag of popcorn?

What party would be complete without Oscar's presence? Well click here to see how to make these amazing cookie statues - they look amazing!

If you aren't in the mood to bake, there are several websites that will deliver delectable Academy Award worth treats right to your door.  My favourite is Eleni's where their cookie and cupcake categories include Best Actor/Actress, Best Picture and Hollywood Quotes.
