Oscar Party Must-Haves

Posted by tina_peril


Bust out your voting ballots, pop the champagne, and get ready to watch Joan Rivers rip Hollywood a new one because it’s Oscar night, baby! If you’re behind on planning an Academy Awards bash we’ve got you covered with the perfect party favors, decor, outfit, and of course, beauty.

Roll Out The Red Carpet

Ever wish you could walk the red carpet? Well, dreams come true on oscar night. Lay down a plain red table cloth, like this one, in a doorway or down a long hallway so that all your guests get to make a grand entrance.

Shine Brighter Than The Trophies

Charlize and Meryl aren’t the only ones who get to wear shimmery dresses on Sunday. Opt for a glitzy mini like this ASOS number for all the glam without a couture price tag.

Brews Fit For A Queen

When the alpha males at your party pretend not to cry during Octavia Spencer’s acceptance speech and ask for a beer to hide their teary eyes, serve an Oscar-worthy brew with this diamond ring bottle opener. Elizabeth Taylor would approve.


Disposable Elegance

Champagne is pricey enough without having to invest in flutes for all your guests. Cuptainers makes plastic flutes in every shape and size so you can save your dish washer the trouble and just toss them out after the bubbley is gone.


Make The Best Hair List

Take it from Wella professional stylists: updos will be all the rage on the red carpet. Beat the stars to the punch and show off a glamorous chignon at your pre-Oscar viewing. One Goody spin pin does the work of 10 bobby pins!


Everyone Takes Home An Oscar

Leave it to an Etsy user to create the perfect Academy Awards party favor. If your favorite actors win, consider these lollipops a tasty congratulations. If they lose, you’ll have the chocolate to console yourself.


Rock A California Tan

If the bronzed babes on the red carpet make you suddenly notice that winter hasn’t done wonders to your skin tone, slather on St. Tropez skin illuminator. The flecks of gold give your face and body a sun kissed, natural tan without looking orange.


Invite All The Girls

Remember some of Oscar’s favorite leading ladies with these wine charms. Have a drink with Audrey, Marilyn, Liz, or Grace and cheers with a movie star at the Academy Awards.


Don’t Leave It Up To The Academy

The best part of any party is when things start to get competitive, so start printing enough oscar ballots to go around. Decided between Brad and George, Viola and Meryl, but bank on The Artist taking home the top prize.
