The Fab Five Are Here to Help You Throw the Ultimate Oscars Party

How to Throw the Ultimate Oscar Party

Spring for a Red Carpet
“I always say if you’re going to go all out, then go all out. For me, a good Oscar party starts with making sure you’re throwing a bash that’s as glitzy as the real thing. Encourage your guests to dress for the red carpet—you can even order one online. Whether you set it up in your front yard, entryway, or building hallway, it’s the perfect way to set a festive mood. If your budget allows, have a step-and-repeat. Personalize it by including an Oscar logo and your name, and then take snaps of everyone who attends—it’s great for social media.”

Soup Up Your Decor
“Keep the decoration simple but glam. I like to use an inexpensive gold lamé and lay it over coffee tables and other surfaces to set the mood. You can also purchase replicas of Oscar trophies and customize them for your guests with categories like Best Dressed or Best Supporting Friend in a Drama.”

…And Your Table
“It’s the Golden Globes that are known for their food and round tables, but borrow a similar layout for your Oscar party to create the ambience of a reception. Rent round tables from a party supplier if you can, and add a gold tablecloth to create some of the glamour synonymous with the awards show. A simple satin gold tablecloth won’t break the bank.”
