It's not too late to add flavor and flair to your Oscar party! Design and entertaining expert Francesco Bilotto is sharing a few fast, fun and frugal ways to do so.
Famous Snack Bowls
Use red disposable cups as your snack bowls. Style them up with gold washi tape stripes for an added touch of glamour.
Think beyond the butter and salt. Nowadays everything goes into popcorn. Make a perfect party popcorn mix in minutes from your pantry. Mix sweet and savory for the winning combination. You can add anything from candy to bacon and even a few puffy cheese balls!
These snacks are another great way to add a little sweet treat to your menu. Simply take a fresh strawberry and insert a stick at the top where it's green. Then take your favorite sauces (I used chocolate and caramel) and pour them into smaller serving bowls. Guests can dip their strawberries and add a few finishing touches like walnuts and gold sprinkles, which can also be served in smaller bowls.
Red Carpet Champagne Cocktail
Nothing says "party" more than a little bubbly! Make it red carpet-worthy by adding in a few drops of maraschino cherry juice and one cherry for garnish! Works perfectly as a mocktail as well, by using sparkling cider.
