Your Oscar® night party will gain glowing reviews with these tips from the Food Network. Check it out…
Grab some toothpicks and create these little letters to decorate your cupcakes. Regular or paper stock would be fine… or even seals would work for your letters.
This decorating idea can be used for other theme parties.
For a birthday, anniversary and/or retirement party simply spell out the guest of honor’s name.
Another idea is to use copyright-free clipart instead of letters.
The possibilities are endless.
Another quick idea for your party is to cut your fruit garnishes in a star shape for all your drinks.
Don’t limit this to just the garnishes… serve star-shaped cheeses with your crackers as a hors d’ oeuvres.
Turn paper napkins into Oscar® envelopes with a gold seal, red ribbon and some clever folding: Open the napkin and lay it flat; fold in the top two corners to form a triangle. Fold the bottom edge of the napkin up until it meets the base of the triangle, then fold the top triangle down and seal.
