Hollywoods most glitzy awards night of the year is nearly upon us so we thought it would be fun to show you how to host your guests Oscars-style! PS. Most of our picks aren't Oscars-specific and can work for a lot of themes:


Inspired by Oscar itself.

From the invites to the flowers, gold elements bring a touch of luxury to any table setting be that Oscars-related or just-because. To keep things modern, we love the idea of marrying gold with white and clear accents in interesting ways for example the gold-dipped dinner plate and crackled ombre vase aren’t a perfect match but they work well together.

If there’s a theme you’re going for, there’s likely a recipe to match.

What better way to get your guests in the spirit of your event than with delicious food to suit the occasion. Blow them away with a movie-inspired menu or keep it simple with good old-fashioned canapes served on stylish tasting plates. Black platters are a classy touch!

With good food must come great drinks and laughter.

Charades are the perfect nod to the Oscars-theme but also an easy icebreaker to entertain your guests with in between meals (and in between award categories, if you’re watching that is!). A bond-inspired cocktail might also help to improve your Charades’ act, alternatively the Moya wine glasses and bow tie are very 007.
