No need to put on your thinking cap. Check out some fabulous Oscars party ideas below.

  • Oscar Party Menu: Serve a fun array of snazzy appetizers like shrimp cocktail, mini quiche, beef skewers with spicy dipping sauce, and mushroom turnovers.
  • Oscar Party Decorations: Take a few of the nominated films and build the party theme around those movies. Decorate your party space according to what the movies were about or set up several food tables that express the themes of the top nominated movies.
  • Oscar Party Favors: Make the Oscar themed party extra special and hand out party favors to all the guests. Go over the top and give bottles of sparkling Prosecco or wrap fancy chocolates in gold paper.
  • Oscar Party Supplies: Make sure you have all the necessary supplies on hand for the night so you don't have to run out to get anything in a hurry. Have plenty of plates, napkins, cups, utensils, drink options, and food. Ask guests to bring a special dessert so you don't have to do all the work!

An Oscar theme party is a wonderful way to get everyone together to chat, gossip, and watch who's best and worst dressed on the red carpet. Start planning and thinking about your Oscar party theme now!
