And the Oscar goes to... Inspirations for hosting an Oscar Party!

The 86th annual Academy Awards are coming up soon - (on March 2nd, to be exact!) and you know we Soirée girls love a good excuse to put the pedal to the metal when it comes to glitz and glam!

We've been inspired by glitz that is the Academy Awards with ideas to get your inspired to throw your own Oscar soirée! Also, next week we'll be sharing our "What to Wear to an Oscar Party" style board so be sure to be on the look out for that!

First, let's talk about invitations! Paperless Post has a lovely Awards Show line - get them printed or send e-vites, your choice! Here are our 3 top faves:

We're noticing a hint of Gatsby in their cards, aren't you?

That brings me to decor! Gold is such a perfect color for the Academy Awards, plus it scales things up a bit. Here are some ideas for your tabletop and decor!

And what about the food you say? 
Well here's what we'd make:
Salmon Caviar Sushi Bites via Food & Wine
Butternut Squash Crostini via Food Network
Scallops with Potato Pancake and Caviar Sauce via Food & Wine
Every good party needs a little "swag"(read: a fun little prezzie for guests to take home) and what could be more perfect than these guys?

Via Etsy has some suggestions for what to serve; as well as a few games to play - free printable Oscar Bingo and Oscar Ballots.

Want to go even further with your party? Set up your own "Red Carpet" with a photo booth! Click here for a tutorial on how to make your own!

And, as always, head on over to our Oscar Party Inspiration Pinterest board for all the links to the items you see here plus even more ideas!
