How to Throw an Oscar Party and Be a Star!
With recipes and how-to videos, setting the stage for your own Oscar event is super easy!
An Oscar Party is your chance to live the fantasy of glitz and glam! And it all starts with setting the stage…To set the stage, start by wiping the slate clean. Remove all decorator items, family photos, and any other décor that doesn’t fit the bill of clean, sparkly, classy, and glamorous in the room you’re throwing the party. Even remove lamps from tables, unless they fit the following concept.. You can place four uplight floor lamps in the four corners of the main viewing room, shooting up and across the ceilings. These are your starlights!
Hampton Bay 6-3/5 inch uplight floor lamp ($11.97, homedepot.com). Or take this multi level floor lamp and turn the lights up to the ceiling for that spotlight look.
Perfect Home Essentials gloss oyster 3-light floor lamp ($13.92, homedepot.com). You can even string Christmas lights across the ceiling from all four corners to create the ambience of a “starry” night. If you happen to have a 60’s mirror ball, it could be fun with a spotlight on it! Now, gather up anything clear and sparkly, like faceted glass decorator items from bedrooms and any rooms not used for the party. Bring them into the party area for touches of light and sparkle to set the scene. A trip to a thrift store can turn up glass faceted items that can cast refracted light from votive candles inside. You can even greet your guests in the entry way with a fifteen foot “red carpet” found at a party store. Here’s one we found for $6.99.
