Oscar night is one of our favorite excuses for throwing a stylish party. Whether you’re planning a small get-together or a big Hollywood-themed bash, one thing is certain: glamour is queen. Here are some simple ways to stage a smashing soiree.
Take a cue from old Hollywood. Serve guests with sparkling glass, mirrored, and metallic entertaining pieces. Then add glitzy, store-bought touches to embellish your look. Glass decanters filled with the evening’s beverages create a formal red carpet vibe. To double your dazzle, set a footed cake plate atop a mirrored tray. Simple white flowers from your grocery store add a pretty touch.
Tall glass candlesticks create a focal point—your sweets are sure to look deliciously dazzling when those candles are lit! Our Small Darcy Glass Jar filled with foil-wrapped chocolates invites guests to indulge.
And be sure to keep the party going! Set out your food and drinks on a console table or mirrored chest (if you have one) in a space away from the television. This will encourage people to move and mingle—and guarantee you’ll win the award for best host or hostess!
