How To Host A Girls' Oscar Night Out Viewing Party

Where did February go? Wasn't it just New Year's? Awards season wraps up this weekend with the granddaddy of them all, the Academy Awards.  I have always wanted to host a girls' night Oscars viewing party, can you believe I've never hosted one?

How To Host A Girls' Oscar Night Out Viewing Party

It's the perfect excuse to invite friends over to dress up and drink champagne, especially when I was offered the chance to partner with Party City and use a few of their products. Here are my a few easy ways to host your own viewing party; it's all about easy glitz and glamour.

What To Serve:
  • It is a awards show devoted to movies, so a popcorn bar is a must.  There are lots of amazing recipes to make your own flavored popcorns, add ons and flavorings. You can always take my route and head to your favorite gourmet food spots to purchase them already flavored.
  • You must have lots of chocolate when serving champagne...they go hand in hand!  Mix up your baked goods routine with shaped baking pans.  I made chocolate mini Bundt cakes with my new, favorite ganache recipe and finished them off with a chocolate covered gummi bear and almond with gold sprinkles. They are no more complicated than cupcakes...just pouring the batter in the pan.
  • Pretty, chocolate covered caramels and fruit are a great way to round out your menu.  Little nibbles are always best...
  • It's ok to mix china with paper and plastic! I used my favorite striped china with popcorn boxes, paper napkins and plastic cutlery.
