Yes, every movie snob’s favourite time of year is finally happening.
If you’re not heading out to see the Awards, you’ll probably be hosting (or attending) an Oscars viewing party – compete with Oscar ballots, champagne ,and fancy hors d’oeuvres.
But if you’re still struggling with ideas on what to serve, don’t worry – we’ve got you covered.
Here are a few of our favourite Hollywood worthy ideas.
Oscar Statue Cookies
It might not be the easiest thing in the world to find an Oscar cookie cutout, but the looks on your guests impressed faces will make it worth it.
Popcorn with Herb Salt
Because you can’t have an Oscar party without popcorn, you should at least try to make it extra fancy popcorn.
Courtesan au Chocolat
This delicious item is featured prominently in one of our favourite nominated films this season, The Grand Budapest Hotel. Pull this recipe off and your guests will be begging you to host every party.
Buying enough champagne to last the night for all your guests might get expensive – this will allow you to spread it out a bit more – and you need boozy punch or it’s not a party.
Bacon Wrapped Dates with Parmesan
These sweet balls of fat will be gone before the stars even exit the red carpet.
Ice Cream Bonbon Pops
This sounds like something that’s probably being served at the actual Oscar after-parties.
Cocktail Star Cubes
These easy to make star shaped ice cubes will glam up the night while also adding flavour to your cocktails.
Pretzel Bites with Cheddar Dip
Pretzels and cheese dip? This is such an easy win we don’t even need to give you another reason why you should serve it.
Sun Dried Tomato Deviled Eggs
Deviled eggs are always a party favourite. And if you’ve never tried them with sundried tomato this is the perfect opportunity to find out just what you’ve been missing out on.
Caramel Corn with Smoked Almonds
You’re drooling just reading the name of this one.
Caesar Salad Spears
Because you should probably serve something healthy – and one of these is probably all the food every woman walking the red carpet in a gown will eat all day.
Veggie Frittata Squares
Not only are these healthy, they also look like edible art.
Shrimp with Avocado Salsa
Anything with avocado salsa is going to be pretty much the best.
Stuffed Baby Potatoes
So cute you won’t want to eat them. So tasty you’ll eat 10 and regret it.
It’s got fruit in it so it’s healthy, right?
Mini Grilled Ham-and-Cheese Sandwiches
Tip: make some with avocado instead of ham for your veggie guests.
