Oscar party ideas: sticking to the theme

The main consideration is sticking to your theme. Think glitz, class, making a fuss of the "star" or stars. Your decoration should reflect that idea.

Decoration, food and drink and your choice of entertainment should all stay true to the theme of a night on the red carpet.

Hollywood 18-inch Metallic Foil Balloon!

Hollywood-themed balloons

Talking of red carpets... this brilliant and great value accessory is totally PERFECT for your Oscar party!

15' Red Carpet Runner

Oscar party: Red carpet runner accessory

All you do is unroll the fake red carpet (it's fifteen FEET long!) and secure it using the provided tape. A really great idea and a superb price, too! We're assuming you don't already have an old red carpet lying around... but if you do, it would be fine too.

Now, when your star or starlet arrives, what could be a more appropriate way to dedicate the party to them than their very own "Walk of Fame" star?

Star Peel N Place

Oscar party: the guest's very own "Walk of Fame" star!

You simply peel off the backing and stick it down. You could even frame the star if you wanted to make it a special gift to remind the party boy or girl of their special night! These are so affordable that you could even create a walk of fame in your home and put a star for everybody at the party there. (The name of the star is written onto the blank template with marker pen.)

Next on our list of essential academy award party supplies is another great piece of decoration:

Hollywood Road Sign Cutouts (4 count)

Oscar party: Hollywood address road signs

These Hollywood road signs really brighten up the party and stick dead to the chosen theme. They're really well priced and a very original way to decorate your Oscar party.

Here's a piece of decoration that's also a great gift idea: statuettes for her or him!

Awards Night Female StatuetteAwards Night Male Statuette

A statuette is not only perfect for your Oscar theme, it's hilarious. They have one for guys or girls. See our Oscar party games and entertainment page for ways to use this as a prop in a fun party game! It's the closest almost everybody will get to receiving their own Oscar. We think this is a brilliant value item ($5 at time of writing).

Another terrific value accessory which can be presented as the guest of honor arrives is a VIP pass:

VIP Party Pass

There are loads of ways to use this, but we recommend preparing it in advance and putting it around the neck of the birthday guy or gal as they enter the party! It sets the tone perfectly and stays on theme.

Academy award party supplies: things to eat off

A party's not complete without food. Obviously if you're on a tight budget, one of the first places you can save money is by using plain paper plates and plastic cups. But if you can push the boat out to themed flatware and accessories, then the payoff will be an even better themed look!

Hollywood Deluxe Party KitHollywood Additional Guest

These academy award party supplies are super-cute and high quality. The pack on the left caters for a total of eight guests and also includes the table cover, centerpiece, balloons and ribbons. On the right is a booster pack for one extra guest. Your party guests will love them!

We also found a serving platter which will look great holding your nibbles:

Hollywood Platter 15

This is especially cool if you have the Hollywood-themed table cover and accessories to go with it.

Academy award party supplies: costumes

Here's an area that's very difficult to shop for. The good news is, any "glam" evening wear will do nicely. Men can wear regular suits and women any frock and high heels, costume jewelry or fake tiaras. (We don't feel it's worth renting top hat and tails for men and black dress for women, but if you really wanted to, that would be the creme de la creme.)
