It's no surprise we have Oscar fever here at POPSUGAR (have you filled out our 2015 Oscars ballot [1] yet?), so when we caught wind that Katie from Katie Rebecca Events [2] was hosting an Oscars bash, we knew we were in for a treat. Between the glitter-decked DIYs (this is the Oscars, after all), film-inspired sweets, festive decorations, and free printables, Katie has award season entertaining in the bag. Keep reading for Katie's foolproof party guide and look out for her Oscars party DIY [3] tutorials!

The New Streamers

Forget taping streamers to the ceiling and walls. Katie made a big statement with little effort by anchoring her buffet table with tasseled confetti balloons [6] from Stephanie Shives Studio [7].

Popcorn For Sugar Hounds

While popcorn and movies go hand in hand, these popcorn cake pops by Sugar Puddin Cafe [10] are a playful way to balance sweet and savory. Yum!

Simple Signature Cockatils

Instead of buying out the liquor aisle, focus on a single cocktail to serve guests, like Katie's grapefruit and tequila drinks.

Award-Worthy Flowers

Even if you don't have time to DIY [20] a sparkling vase, you can easily find an inexpensive gold option at discount stores like HomeGoods or Ross. These pretty posies are from Tango and Foxtrot [21], but even Trader Joes' flowers can look stunning in the right vessel.

Disposable Table Runners

Instead of buying matching linens, experiment with pretty paper goods like this gold glitter wrapping paper [33]. Top off the look with star cake pops [34] (yup, that's edible glitter!) from Sweet Lauren Cakes and milk.

Black Tie Event

Just because it's a party in your living room doesn't mean black ties can't make an appearance. Try tying black ribbons on favors and setting them on your buffet table.

Upgrade your buffet table by using cute stir sticks as skewers.

A Touch of Glitter

Hold off on the fancy silverware – adding glitter to food cards and wooden spoons feels just as special.
