Oscar Night - Paint your party RED!

Having an Oscars party this Sunday? Check out these ideas...

What's more celebratory than champagne?  Serve bubbly red cocktails like Kir Royale or Bubbly Blood Orange Campari.  Bubbly not your thing?  Forgo the bubbles but stick with red carpet red with a Red Ball or a Big Red.

This isn't like any other movie night, so give your popcorn a facelift with these ideas from Martha Stewart.
Serve "Red Carpet" Velvet Cake, but make it Oscar-ready with gold stars, ribbon, and dragées.  Decorating idea from The Goddess Kitchen.

The official Oscars web site has a party section with ballets, bingo, and more!

Who are you rooting for?  I'll admit, I haven't seen many movies lately, so fill me in!

up until last year, I did an annual Oscar fete. We're on hiatus for a few years . . . but I still create a great "Acceptance Speech Bingo" game. Fun excuse to get friends together for an annual event, even when it means staying up past your bedtime on a school night.
