The Oscars are fast approaching on February 22nd! Having a party set up can make the event more enjoyable, classier, and it gives you a chance to show off some old-fashioned glamor of your own. Here are some ideas:


  • Create ballots for guests to complete. Hand out statuette favors to each guest who correctly predicts a category winner and then award a grand prize to the person with the most accurate slate.
  • Decorate with star balloons and metallic tableware. The more glitz, the better!
  • Encourage guests to come in costume or provide accessories like dark sunglasses, feather boas and faux jewels to help create a Hollywood vibe.
  • Roll out the red carpet by taping red fabric yardage to the floor.


Our collection of Hollywood items will give you just the right inspiration to celebrate some great films over the last year!  To get you started in the know, the main contenders for Best Picture are: Birdman, American Sniper, Selma, The Imitation Game, Boyhood, Theory of Everything, Whiplash, and The Grand Budapest Hotel.
