The glitz, the glamour, Hollywood’s biggest stars vying for little golden men…. We are so ready to watch the biggest awards show — and red carpet — of the year. And we’ll be inviting over our star-studded guest list (i.e., our nearest and dearest) to join us for some ballots and bubbly. Want to throw an effortless but fabulous fete of your own? Here’s how to do it in style:

Channel Old Hollywood glamour by sticking to a black-and-gold palette. Start by chilling some bubbly in a gilded ice bucket that’s both functional and fabulous. Serve up some star-struck champagne cocktails in gold-stemmed glasses — and don’t forget the festive coasters — cheers! A simple cheese plate and some award-worthy appetizers served on a glamorous tray and you’re set for nibbles and tipples.

Next, set the scene. Swap out your usual pillows for black-and-gold cushions, add a few bold black-and-gold canisters to your mantel, and arrange some golden starbursts on your coffee table in lieu of a traditional floral centerpiece. And, just as on the silver screen, lighting is everything. A sophisticated ebony pendant lamp adds a golden glow to any occasion.
