Lights! Camera! Action! The 84th Annual Academy Awards

Want to host your own Oscars party? We can help. Make the party look effortless and inspired by “Best Picture” nominees: War Horse, Midnight in Paris, The Tree of Life, The Descendants, The Help, The Artist, Moneyball, and Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close.

Before serving your guests, give them an Oscars ballot and see who your “Academy” thinks the winners should be.

So, what should you serve? Start the night off and drink like the stars with a Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 1998. Consider pairing it with an International Cheese Platter with cheeses from all around the world.

As celebrities walk away with Oscars and $70K goodie bags, give your guests the star treatment by sending them home with awards & goodie bags of their own! Make your own awards for “Best Dressed”, “Best Supporting Actress” and “Best Supporting Side Dish”; or get pre-made ribbons at a party or craft store. Then, fill goodie bags with mini luxuries like a Celebrity Wine sampler from Tasting Room. Everyone will be a winner at your party!
