Throw an Award-Worthy Oscars Party + A Giveaway!

With the Oscars only a little more than a week away, are you ready to throw an award-worthy Oscar party? I’ve got 5 tips below to help you prepare:Oscar Party - Legal Miss Sunshine1. Set the Mood: Are you tired of all the black/white/red/gold parties? I am. They feel dated and … well, obvious. So I decided to shake it up with a pink (of course!), orange, and gold themed party! I know, obvious for me. But no red carpet, no film reels, but a lot of fresh colors and fun!Oscar Party - Legal Miss SunshineYou can also set the mood with a dress code: have your guests dress in costume, dress to the nines, or wear pajamas! I love the idea of a costume party! Who would you dress up as for this years Oscars? 

2. Craft Services: A party just isn’t a party without a cake … or cupcakes!Oscar Party - Legal Miss SunshineThese Red Carpet Cupcakes with Hollywood Sign Caketoppers are super easy to whip up!

And any award-worthy Oscar party will have popcorn, or better yet, a popcorn bar! You can check out a few of my Popcorn Toppings recipes including Chocolate Peanut Butter, S’mores Popcorn, and Garlic Parmesan! And I created a new one: Fancy White Chocolate! What makes it fancy? The sprinkles!Oscar Party - Legal Miss Sunshine

White Chocolate Popcorn Topping


  • ½ cup unpopped popcorn
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup white chocolate chips

  • sprinkles of choice


  1. Pop popcorn and transfer half to bowl.
  2. Melt and mix sugar, white chocolate chips, and corn syrup over low heat on stove.
  3. Once mixed, drop a few spoonfuls over popcorn, add sprinkles, and mix. Repeat.
  4. Add other half of popcorn to bowl.
  5. Repeat step 3.
  6. Salt to taste.
  7. Enjoy!

3. Cocktails: I decided to keep the cocktails simple with some bubbly. But I couldn’t just put a bottle of bubbly in an ice bucket – no, it had to be glitter bubbly!Oscar Party - Legal Miss Sunshine4. Comfy Seating: Make sure you have enough seating. Only have a couch and some chairs? Add some floor pillows and blankets.

5. Games and Entertainment: I know the Oscars themselves can be entertaining (with a good host), but sometimes it’s more fun with games! I LOVE a good game of Bingo! I’m competitive so a bingo game keeps me watching the show when I really just want to eat and chat with friends. If you’re hosting, you can giveaway a bottle of champagne to the first guest who yells BINGO!

But my favorite is a ballot! You can either have guests “buy-in” when they arrive and the winner with the most correct guesses wins the grand prize at the end of the night, or you can host the prize and giveaway a gift card for movie tickets!
