Oscar Party Idea

Welcome to our Oscar Party Idea page.

It's time to walk the red carpet... Bask in the glitz and glamour of your own Oscar party!

Greet your guests with a personalized Oscar party sign.

As guests arrive, the spotlight is on them as they walk the red carpet. Look for an inexpensive red sheet or material at a second-hand store and cut it to three or four feet or whatever works best for your location.

If you have a Polaroid camera, take pictures of your guests as they arrive, and give them the photo to take home. Otherwise, send a digital or print photo later.

Use a microphone and announce them as they walk in. For extra fun, use phrases like, "Best Soccer Mom nominee, Jennifer, has now entered the building. She is being escorted by Tom, best known for his supporting role in, "Armchair Football Fanatics."


Inside, set the mood by creating easy and inexpensive decorations to use throughout the room. You can use card stock to create a "Hollywood" sign as well as other movie-themed items such as a megaphone, scene marker, director's chair, and more.

Decorate with Best Picture movie posters.

Make your table settings as elegant as possible using richly colored table cloths (such as red, burgundy, or black).

Use poster board to create an award statue to place on the refreshment table. Make smaller awards to give each of your guests, inviting each to come to a center stage and podium to accept the award during or after the main meal.

Use some white Christmas lights tastefully throughout the room to add some sparkle and ambiance.

Create your own "walk of fame" by making stars from poster board with your guests' names and place them on the floor throughout the room.

See the Oscar Party decorating kit for all the needed decorations and supplies.

Dress Attire

Let your guests know that this is a red carpet event and that they should dress in their finest.

This is a great excuse to break out those old gowns and tuxedos that have been hiding in the back of the closet (or in the trunk)!

Or, go informal and add some boas and top hats just for fun!


Movie ticket invitations are fun for an Oscar theme party. You can also create your own by creating black and white invitations with gold stars, tuxedos, scene markers, etc.

Food & Drink

This theme works great as a dinner party. The menu can include anything you like to cook, but keep it on the elegant and formal side. Consider a rich pasta dish or a meat and vegetables option.

For the award part of the party, have champagne or sparkling juice for your guests. Choose your awards carefully so that there will plenty of opportunity for a few laughs.


Play memorable movie theme music, either current or all-time favorite tunes.

I hope the Oscar Party Idea page helped spark some fun ideas for your upcoming celebration!
