Didn’t get an invite to the Oscar’s this year?
Bring the Oscar’s to your home by following some of these tips that will help keep your red carpet event chic and glamorous.
Pamper your guests by keeping an unlimited supply of Moet & Chandon (known champagne supplier of the Oscar’s) waiting for them at your champagne fountain. Don’t forget to serve your guests two of Moet & Chandon’s signature Oscar cocktails: Starlet and Silver Screen Punch!
Ingredients- 4 mint leaves, 3/4 oz silver tequila, 1/2 oz elderflower liqueur, 1/2 oz simple syrup, 1/2 oz lime Juice, 3 oz Moet & Chandon
Instructions- In a cocktail shaker combine simple syrup, lime juice, and mint leaves. Use a muddle or a wooden spoon to muddle the mint leaves. Add tequila and elderflower liqueur and fill shaker with ice. Shake vigorously for 20 seconds. Strain into a glass and top with Moet & Chandon. Garnish with starfruit.
Silver Screen Punch:
Ingredients- 1 (6 oz) can of pink lemonade concentrate (partially thawed), 8 oz pineapple juice, 1 cup frozen strawberries, 1/2 tsp of grated ginger, 1 cup vodka, 1 bottle of Moet & Chandon, 1 pineapple (if preferred for a garnish, cut into rings and freeze).
Instructions- In a blender, combine pink lemonade concentrate, pineapple juice, strawberries, and ginger. Blend until smooth. Pour into a punch bowl. Add vodka and stir to combine. Just before serving, pour in Moet & Chandon. Add frozen pineapple rings.
Keep it elegant!
Break away from the expected Oscar Party decor. Make sure to keep the décor simple, yet chic by adding black and gold accents to your centerpieces, table settings, and floral arrangements. If you choose to display Oscar statuettes at your party, purchase them with a gold plated finish and keep them minimal throughout your home. Elegant touches to your event will make guests feel like they are at an “A List” celebrity affair.
Everyone knows that in order to make an unforgettable entrance at the Oscar’s you have to make a fashion statement. Encourage your guests to wear their most formal attire and favorite designer pieces and make it a black tie event! Lay a red carpet down, hire a professional photographer as “paparazzi”, and have your guests walk the red carpet! Pick a great backdrop for guests to stop and take their red carpet photo. Send guests home with a printed copy of their photo. Some vendors can even turn your photo into a magazine cover image on the spot. That is a great take home party favor.
