Plan an Oscar party! What could be a more fun "Girls Night Out" than gathering all your special girlfriends together to watch the Academy Awards on Sunday March 2. Ellen DeGeneres will return for an encore as the host. She has a tough act to follow after the great job Tina Fey and Amy Poehler did at the Golden Globes! Plus read that they are going to move the ceremony along a bit more quickly this year, so perhaps even the working girls can stay for the final award presentation! These ideas also make for a great Hollywood theme party any time of year!
Oscar Party Food and Drink Ideas
Concoct some fun cocktails and drinks based on the Oscar nominated movies.. my ideas for this year: Merchant Marine Margaritas for Captain Phillips; Osage County Sangria for August:Osage County, Wall Street Wines for Wolf of Wall Street and Cosmic Cosmos for Gravity, perhaps Hustler Punch for American Hustler.. you can dream up some of your own. Display them on a table and tag with a sign! How fun!!Wolfgang Puck, the well-known chef and restauranteur, usually caters the post Oscar dinner for the nominees and is well known for his famous pizzas. Why not make up mini-pizzas with a variety of toppings. These are so easy to do using Boboli 2 Mini 8" Italian Pizza Crusts, 10 oz. and a variety of toppings. You can make ahead and pop in the oven and in 12 minutes you have an array of yummy personal pizzas! Easy and economical too.. what a great addition to your party.
Rachel Ray has some fun ideas to help you roll out the red carpet
on Oscar night. I loved her idea of putting a red runner down the table
and throwing some gold confetti. So simple and inexpensive, but adds to
the ambiance of your Oscar festivities. Rachel always has a great
supply of easy and delicious recipes. I have tried her Grilled 5 Spice shrimp and it is fabulous.
