Black, gold and white is always a classy combo for your Oscar Soiree. Try spray painting glass bottles with gold paint for a festive decor option. Use gold, black and white crepe paper  to make a big fringe photo booth backdrop.  Make a topiary using deliciously beautiful Ferrero Rocher chocolates. Of course, black, white and gold balloons, table cloths, and napkins will polish off the look. And don’t forget the champagne! What better decor than champagne in an ice bucket and clear flute full of golden bubbly.

What’s a party without games? Of course, the Oscars is not really a pin-the-tail on the donkey kind of occasion. Red carpet bingo is a fun option for those who love the fashionable pre-show. Or write your own acceptance speech with a mad-lib style fill-in-the-blank printable. And make sure to print out a blank ballot so each guest can make their guesses before all the trophies get handed out.
