Author Christine Cuthbert helps turn Oscar night into a real party

Oscar party ideas

SAN ANTONIO – It’s been a year of watching movies at home, so your living room needs to be a red carpet event.

Author Christine Cuthbert has five easy and fun ideas for an over-the-top but casual Oscar night party.

1. Red carpet correspondent: Make a DIY microphone so your child can do red carpet interviews. You need a wooden dowel rod, an old tea box, black duct tape, and a styrofoam ball.

2. Star-studded snacks: It’s a DIY Charcuterie board. Take your favorite snacks and cut them into star shapes with a star-shaped cookie cutter. Another fun snack idea, use pretzel sticks and olives to create mini-microphones.

3. Black tie decorations: Elevate even the finest champagne glasses by dressing them up. Fold a black napkin accordion-style, then pinch the middle and tie with a pipe cleaner, then tie to the glassware.
