Oscar Prep Movie Night

by Cindi SutterChief Communicator & Editor of Spirited Table®

In anticipation of the Oscars, my goal, like every other movie aficionado in the USA, is to see as many of the nominated movies as possible, before 2/24 at 6 Pacific Time SHARP. No sharp is not a new time zone. So in order to make that happen asap, let’s discuss having at least one of these party nights below before 2/24.

How to Throw the Ultimate Oscar Prep Movie Night

an understudy for the Oscars

I ripped a page out of an Oscar screenplay, added a dash of LA, for my Oscar party template. (Katie Chin get’s an assist for part of the foodie list).

The envelope please… it reveals 28 Oscar Cocktails from Town & Country. (See my top 10 favs below)

Add some LA spirit to your next Movie Night with these award-worthy tips:

  1. Create a Popcorn Bar with gourmet seasonings

  2. Print "movie ticket" themed invites

  3. Create party favor buckets with Twizzlers, Raisinets, etc.
