There are few things in this life that I love more than a good movie and a great bowl of popcorn! Celebrate this year’s Oscars with a party full of glitz and glam. Here are some ideas for a fun movie themed get together.

Decorations

Special décor is not required however, for a big themed party it can be a lot of fun. Especially when you’re celebrating Hollywood and movies. Why not go over the top?

The iconic Oscar statuette needs to make an appearance but there’s no need to break the bank. Make paper Oscar statues with this free printable download.

Frame your TV with a red curtain to bring in a bit of colour and fun.

Bring in some twinkle with special lighting. White Christmas lights under gauzy table cloths, flashlights tucked into spray painted tin cans for spotlights or marquee lights will make your event feel glam.

Make some film reels from cardboard or foam core and use temporary sticky hooks to mount them on your walls.

Faux velvet rope stanchions are a super fun touch and can be used to bring emphasis to certain areas of the party – a fondue station maybe?

Food

A party isn’t a party with out fun eats! You can go simple and easy or absolutely on theme depending on your crowd and how much time you have to pull things together. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

You can make a themed charcuterie board to suit your crowd and then fill in the rest with some fun extras
