  • Set up a simple buffet with salty & sweet treats for guests to munch on before dinner and signature drinks. Champagne cupcakes, truffled popcorn, and macarons are always festive crowd-pleasers.

  • Toss fresh popped corn with truffle oil & sea salt for a decadent treat. To make your own paper holders, simply cut a sturdy piece of paper to measure 7 1/2 X 11″. Twist into a cone shape and tape!

  • Use delicate glassware to hold cookies. Add a golden touch by spraying macarons with an edible metallic finish and topping with edible glitter!

  • Allow guests to mix their own signature drinks. Try a champagne bar and use recipe cards to guide guests.

  • Try 3 drinks that use similar ingredients—like a Classic Champagne Cocktail, Rosemary Gin Fizz, and French75.

  • Let your guests dress their drinks with festive swizzle sticks and paper straws.

  • Print Oscar ballots online and see who racks up the most awards! You can download the ballot we used from Good Housekeeping here.

  • Edible gold stars add a fun touch to simple cupcakes.

  • We kept the tablescape simple with white linens and dishes, and we scattered gold star cut-outs and movie tickets down the center.

  • For the seating cards, we used small trophies from the dollar store and spray-painted the tickets gold. We attached them with mini clothespins we covered in gold glitter!
