Re-create the star treatment for your guests with a red carpet inside your home. You can print out Hollywood Walk of Fame Stars and tape them to the floor. It’s the next best thing to Hollywood Boulevard! Serve champagne in flutes with black bow ties on the stem, and decorate your wine bottles or tables with mini-movie posters. Carley suggests checking your local party store for inexpensive, movie-themed decor.

When your guests get hungry, serve a popcorn bar and plenty of movie theater candy. Prepare main courses inspired by this year’s nominated films; Philly cheesesteaks for Silver Linings Playbook, Louisiana gumbo for Beasts of the Southern Wild and fondue inspired by Argo, which is set in the 1970s.

Play a version of Oscar Bingo during the show, and even allow your guests to become a nominee. Assign each person an actor, actress or director, and then if he or she wins, your guest also wins! Swanky gift bags should include movie gift cards and chocolates.
