How to throw a last minute Oscar Party!

One of my favorite TV nights is this Sunday - The Oscars! For the last 10 years, our dear friends, Jeff and Andrew, have hosted the most amazing Oscar Soiree but this year they are taking a break, which leaves me in distress. I love the idea of gathering with close friends and family around the TV for an Oscar Party. Even though I haven’t watched all of the movies it is fun to see what the stars are wearing (good or bad), listen to funny speeches and make bets on who is going to win (or should win).  So I have decided to host my very own Oscar Fete with close friends! Since it's last minute, it can't be anything too fancy but the plan is to evoke the glitz and glamour of the Oscars within the comforts of my own home.  Rest assured I will wear my designer gown! So here's the plan. Decor: Stick to the traditional black and gold color scheme and add a dash of hot pink  or red if you like color. Menu: Signature cocktail, buffet station with heavy appetizers, cupcakes Sample Menu Idea MINI PHILLY CHEESESTEAKS TWO WAYS MINI CRAB CAKES WITH CHIVE REMOULADE MINI GRILLED CHEESE WITH OTTO BLACK TRUFFLE HONEY  MAC & CHEESE CUPCAKES WITH BACON & CHIVES recipes can be found at Mary Guiliani's blog
Dress up your signature cocktail with these festive gold pom pom swizzle sticks
Decorate the buffet with mini oscar statues, gold stars, and gold balloons
Add some glam to your cupcakes with gold liners and sprinkles
Serve popcorn in these gilded bowls for extra glam during the show
Oscar Ballots: No Oscar night party would be complete without ballots to fill out while everyone is watching the red carpet.

The mood should suit the event, and awards season parties shouldn't be taken too seriously. Be creative and quirky — may the best hostess win! Hope you have a fun night....
