Really, your Oscar-night party doesn’t need much: a few nibbles, some drinks and a big TV. The rest will take care of itself – between the dresses, the speeches and the weird public displays of affection (remember
Angelina Jolie smooching her brother in 1999? [shudder]), there’s always plenty of fodder for hilarious commentary. But tarting things up a bit will definitely add to the fun.
Designer gowns: optional. Style: a must. For Oscar-worthy party stylings, see after the jump.

Marchesa-plate-2 Watching the Academy Awards (including the pre-show red-carpet coverage) is a time commitment – your guests will need sustenance. We suggest you serve something beautiful and gourmet, but even if your nibbles end up being Doritos and M&Ms, they’ll look pretty classy on this gorgeous Marchesa platter.

Pinterest. Instead, pick up some of these edible gold stars and sprinkle them over cupcakes. Beautiful – and no skill required.
