Every year the red carpet hooplah, fashion hits and horrors, and award winner predictions send America into a tingling frenzy and the Hollywood Pop Gallery team of event stylists is as ready as Joan Rivers would have been to pounce on the Oscars of 2015. We come to you with some of our favorite Oscar party ideas to celebrate the arts without spending thousands buying your way into the Academy Awards or wasting your time and self-confidence when you can’t get into an official Oscar after-party.

The envelope please… The top 6 ways to glam up your Oscar Night with these Oscar Party ideas from Hollywood POP!


1. Dazzling Dames and Gussied-Up Gents

While it’s not exactly the season for estate sales, the nearest luxury consignment shop can be a great source for some vintage stunners worthy of the red carpet. Even in your living room, the Academy Awards are no place for sweat pants and scrunchies! Not all of us are so fortunate to be able to have the world’s top designers throwing their couture evening wear at us. The Hollywood Pop Gallery gals love INA in New York City (their multiple locations are super convenient) and Roundabout Couture in Greenwich, CT for top-quality second hand treasures. For those non-committal types, our favorite local costume rental and authentic vintage clothing spot, Sophia’s of Greenwich is sure to never leave you in the stardust.

2. Decadent

The Academy will have to nominate you for ‘Best Production Design’ when you pull off these tips from our events team at your own Oscars viewing party.

A great movie always has a great set so decorations are key. This fun DIY chandelier made out of colorful ticket strips made our eyes POP! Since these perforated strips come in a variety of colors, add your own touch with whatever color scheme you like. Apartment Therapy has the right idea with this step-by-step tutorial to make your own.

3. Must-Have Munchies

No ‘Don’t Feed the Models’ signs here! Impress your guests with fabulous bites like Curious Forks’ recipe for White Bean Hummus with Truffle Oil with fresh veggies and pita and decadent Chocolate and Peanut Butter Dipped Pretzels. Our Director of Special Events likes to glam them up by adding a touch of edible gold leaf flakes, dust, or gold sprinkles- available in many craft stores that carry baking supplies. Janet Cristina of Sweet Temptations serves them as dipped pretzel sticks (and also offers a covered Oreo subscription club! Swoon!).

4. Sparkling Service

Just WHO are those models who effortlessly whisk the trophy on and the actor off the stage? Who cares when you have your own statuesque beauties at your very own Oscar Night party? Hollywood Pop Gallery has a knack for booking top quality staff for private and corporate events – and it doesn’t hurt that they are easy on the eyes too. At a chic private event in New York City, Hollywood Pop Gallery had our Champagne Dames, or models dressed in elegant gowns with rhinestone encrusted champagne bottle belt holsters, filling glasses of bubbly for guests all throughout cocktail hour. It’s a subtle but memorable touch for guests to enjoy at a party and let’s be honest… famous Oscar award presenters wouldn’t be caught dead holding anything but an envelope on stage so why make your guests even have to ask for a glass of champagne?

5. POParazzi Problems

Half the fun of the Oscars is getting to see your favorite stars making out and making faces at the sponsored photo booth! OK, maybe not half the fun but we’ve all had a good laugh at the famous couples posing with their shiny new Oscar statues after having had a few cocktails during the ceremony. Hollywood Pop Gallery’s digital photo booths pump out high-resolution prints at a rapid rate and photos can be custom branded for your event. Photo booths are a classic for many occasions but with the ever-changing advances coming out that give a techy spin on the black and white carnival strip, they remain one of the most popular features of any well-planned party. Write with light, share your picture instantly on most any social media outlet, or for the real over-achievers the 360° surround photo booth captures guests at every angle. Also known as the “Glam Cam 360,” feel like a celebrity awards show-goer and you too can put your best Oscar look under the microscope. Just don’t trip up the stairs!

6. Winner, winner….

With all the buzz about who’s wearing what, may we not forget to address the real reason we all have something to talk about for the next 364 days… the great films that take the world by storm. These films created by immensely talented masterminds that provide us with multi-sensory displays of true art are a cherished global diversion and we must give due credit where it is deserved. Whether you are a Oscar nominee connoisseur or have never even heard of “Birdman,” print out your own ballot from sites like Fandango and have some fun predicting the winners. When in doubt, choose the most ridiculously titled short film. Or actually go out and support filmmaking. Whichever comes first.
