I just did these myself, and obviously used iStock photo without paying. But if I was really gonna do it, I would get the ladies at The Pomegranate Basket to do my invites. They are super creative and would come up with something awesome!
Then we would have to have some awesome drinks, I liked this one:
- 2 bottles sparkling wine
Fill flutes with the sparkling wine and add a splash of the liquor.
Then we would have to have some killer appetizers. I love bruschetta, so I would have to throw that in there. I also love this baked brie. I have made it many times to awesome reviews. Here is a recipe.

Then we would have to have some pre-viewing games. Maybe something like sceneit, Oscar style. We would do voting ballots passing out ahead of time and see who wins in ‘our’ Oscar’s. We would definitely take pictures of all of our Oscar outfits and talk about who and what we are wearing. 🙂
Then, of course, I would love to have my guests leave with little party bags! It’s a must! This is what it would have in it:
- CD of the Oscar nominated songs, and some more, just for fun
- Homemade frames to put the Oscar photos in
- Lip gloss
- Nail polish
- Cutely packaged bag of candy
- Scented lotion
