Oscar Party 2014

The Academy Awards are coming up, so you know what that means: getting together with your best friend to watch the big event, of course! It’s time to start the party planning for a night you’ll always remember by cooking, drinking, eating, voting, and dressing like the celebrities you love to watch.

Get dressed up
If the celebs are getting dressed up for the big night, there’s no reason why the two of you shouldn’t either. Maybe you don’t have thousands to spend on an outfit, but chances are you already have something fabulous in your closet you can sport, so slip it on and get fancy!

Fill out a ballot
You and your best friend can chip in and buy a prize, then each of you can fill out a ballot. Whomever comes out the winner gets to keep the goody.

Drink champagne
Guests at the Academy Awards are going to be drinking their fair share of champagne, so you should as well. There’s plenty of incredible champagnes that cost under $50 for those of us who are on a budget.

Make appetizers
You’ll need to eat something with your bubbly, and these hearty appetizers should do the trick. Many require little time to make, so you can easily finish several before the show begins. Chow down, ladies!

Have themed entrees
To personalize your get-together, you and your best friend can pick a Best Picture nominee and build your menu around it. For example, if you love 2014 nominee “American Hustle,” you can make a dinner menu of Chicken Piccata, Garlic Bread, and Sauteed Broccoli Rabe.

Make jellied champagne dessert
These super-cute jellied champagne desserts are easy to make and are perfectly festive. Not only does each dessert require only 5 ingredients, but they come in at only 96 calories.

Make strawberry and champagne cheesecake

The strawberry and champagne cheesecake recipe is sure to be a big hit on Academy Awards night. There will be more than enough left over, so you can keep some for yourself and give the rest to your best friend.

Make Oscar cookies
Someone brilliant decided to make a cookie cutter in the shape of the Oscar statue, so use it to your advantage and whip up a batch of cookies in the shape of the award.

The 86th Academy Awards will take place on March 2, 2014 and will be hosted by Ellen DeGeneres.
