The 89th Annual Academy Awards take place this year on February 26th, and it’s always fun to watch it with a group of friends. Here are some tips on how to host your very own glamorous Oscar party!
Have the proper decor for the occasion! Because this is Oscar-themed, maintain a gold and black theme. Same can be done for a “Movie Night” or “Hollywood” themed party!
Print out copies of the Oscars ballot sheet, and provide one to each guest before the show starts. Each guest can then make their own predictions. At the end of the evening, hand out prizes, such as golden trophies, to the guests who have the highest number of correct winning predictions.
Food & Drinks
Set food on a buffet table away from the TV so guests can get up to move around during the more dull portions of the telecast.
Desserts are a must so be sure to have sweet treats for your guests to enjoy.
Serve a selection of finger foods and bite-sized appetizers as these will be the easiest types of food to munch on in front of the TV.
Serve one or more signature cocktails, or several different ones, named after this year’s Oscar-nominated films and stars. Mix up a Grand Mimosa and re-name it the “La La Land”, or serve a Sangria disguised under the name “Hidden Figures”. The possibilities are endless—just use your imagination to come up with fun and original names!

For red, we recommend the Meiomi Pinot Noir, perfect for those who enjoy a mixture of woody, spicy, floral and fruity aroma. For white, we recommend the Ruffino Pinot Grigiot, which contains floral, fruity and mineral aromas.
