The Academy Awards is one of the most glamorous occasions in Hollywood, so what better excuse to throw an elegant affair of your own? We put together our ideas for a dream dinner party, taking inspiration from two of the night’s most infamous events: the Governor’s Ball and the Vanity Fair Oscar Party. Our menu includes refined fare dreamed up by the longtime caterer of the Governor’s Ball (and celebrity in his own right), Wolfgang Puck, plus chic cocktails and gilded decor.
Champagne and Strawberries
Gold charger plates
Vintage China and candlesticks
Sophisticated centerpieces—we used artichokes in place of florals
Place cards with the name of each guest’s favorite nominee
Nothing. We’re hanging on every word of the acceptance speeches.
