American Hustle

Any great American Hustle party would of course be '70s-themed and groovy. Sunita Sadhnani from Glamorous Events Planners on Long Island suggests hanging a large disco ball in the center of your party room and play some cheesy disco music. Don't forget to roll out the blackjack and check out our recipe for "Fuhgeddaboudits" or chocolate and caramel covered rice krispie treats- just as decadent and over-the-top as Jennifer Lawrence's hairdo.

Gravity

It's all about the space theme when it comes to hosting a Gravity party, so go all out with sticking glowing stars on the walls and ceiling, and sprinkle star confetti all over. Sunita Sadhnani of Glamorous Event Planners in Long Island says to craft your own spaceships with with empty paper towel tubes, silver spray paint and tinfoil. And even if crafts are not your forte, you can wow your guests with a frozen spherical vodka cocktail.

Check out this recipe for the "Anti-Gravity Ice Sphere" cocktail from entertainment expert and designer Mark Addison.

August: Osage County

August: Osage County gives you that rare opportunity to celebrate one of the plains states, Oklahoma, and to celebrate family togetherness. So be sure your guests are seated around the table and eating these watermelon feta cheese skewers (from Evite) while listening to some country music in the background. After all, Oklahoma is well-known for their watermelon.

Check out Evite's recipe for Mediterranean Watermelon Feta Skewers.

Frozen

Frozen practically screams, "throw a party!" Whether you're hosting kids and doling out Olaf the snowman-shaped cupcakes, or hosting a more sophisticated adult party, we've got you covered. Your decor should have a silver and blue color scheme, to match the movie, and don't be afraid to hang some paper snowflakes to make your own winter wonderland. Enjoy your party while sipping on some frozen blue margaritas.

Check out this recipe for a "Frozen" blue margarita

Captain Phillips

For a Captain Phillips party, it's all about the nautical theme, hopefully without any unwanted Somalian pirate guests! Serve up some seafood dishes like a crab dip appetizer, or any other seafood snack.

Check out this crab alfredo pizza bites appetizer from Celebrations at Home.

Her

If you've seen this sweet and unusual romantic flick, you know that the carnival plays a big part. So make it a carnival theme to match the date Theodore takes Samantha on, says Sunita Sadhnani of Glamorous Event Planners in Long Island. Hand out bags of popcorn and candy apples, and string up colorful lights around the room.

Check out this signature cocktail, the Strawberry Crush Cocktail by BLT Steak Scottsdale, meant to evoke the sweet rush of a crush.

Dallas Buyers Club

Everything's bigger in Texas, and the same goes for your Dallas Buyers'-themed party! Have everyone wear cowboy boots and hats, play some twangy country music and possibly play a round of "pin the cowboy hat/oversized moustache on Matthew McConaughey."

Check out this Texas Toast topped with refried beans and salsa, from Kitchen Daily.

Wolf of Wall Street

You're probably going to have to keep your party a little bit tamer than Leonardo DiCaprio's antics, but you can get a little wild by having your guests come in their business best and slug down some gin.

Check out The White Collar, made with Plymouth gin and crème de cassis, by Andaz Wall Street.


Throw an Oscar Party

The hubs and I are avid movie goers, but admittedly we have not seen as many lately as we would like (thanks massive honey do list). However, the Oscar’s are right around the corner saddled to air March 2nd, which is exciting for fans like us! We have not seen all of the nominees this year, but there are some strong contenders. It’s bound to be a great year for some of our favorite actors.

The show is a bit later than usual this year, but that just means more time to plan an Oscar viewing party worthy of an Academy Award!

How you ask? Let’s turn to the blogging world to find out. Photo credits belong to each individual blogger or page and a link back to the page is attached to each image.

1. To start, send out invitations to everyone reminiscent of getting invited to a shindig at Gatsby’s mansion. Keep it simple, but fancy. Send it electronically for free via evite.com or go old school and mail out invitations. I like these from Twig & Thistle from a few years ago, download the free printable here:

Or this one from Paper Muse Press, which really reminds me of The Great Gatsby parties:

You can also dare to be creative and design your own using the free service at Paperless Post.

2. Of course, you are gonna have to roll out the red carpet for your guests just like at the Oscars.

Thanks to stores like Party City and Party Cheap, you can do this pretty inexpensively!

3. Decorate in style. Float some pearly gold and black balloons. These come cheap from Party City.

Use lots of pretty black and white details. Find a version of this awesome Tassel Garland on Etsy.

Gold plastic plates and silverware are inexpensive, but make a fun statement. Make gold confetti using a large hole punch and heavy duty shiny gold paper.

4. Provide your guests with an Oscar Nominee Ballot and turn it into a fun, competitive game – whoever guesses the most correct wins in each category gets a prize!

How About Orange does a beautiful graphic version every year that you can download for free directly from her website, here, in pdf. You can also download her Oscar Bingo to add a little fun to the party!

5. Get the party started with some classic cocktails in honor of your favorite nominees for Best Picture! Serve up this classic Dirty Martini from BBC with olives to celebrate the Wolf of Wall Street and a Harvey Wallbanger from Daisy’s World with the Italian Galliano liquer for American Hustle.

6. Dish up menus inspired by your favorite Best Picture nominee. Thanks to Epicurious, all of the thought into planning a menu is taken care of for you. Chicken Piccata and cannolis for American Hustle or collard greens and johnnycakes for 12 Years a Slave.

7. Popcorn is a must at any movie-themed party, especially one celebrating the Oscars.

Try a twist on traditional movie popcorn with Two Peas and a Pod’s Garlic Rosemary Parmesan Popcorn:

Put out a pretty Popcorn bar like this one with an assortment of flavors, drizzles, salts, melted butters, fillers.

Or have it for dessert with this Buttered-Popcorn Ice Cream Sundae from Bon Appetit or Buttery Popcorn Ice Cream from The Kitchn:

8. Have Irish Coffee, like this one from Delish, available in honor of Captain Phillips when the late night sleepies start to set in so you can make it to the best part – Best Picture winner! Everything gon’ be alright, Irish.

What was your favorite movie this season? Are you rooting for your favorite actor or song? I’m really hoping “Let It Go” pulls off a coup and wins best original song! We really enjoyed that movie this year. I’m also hoping that Leo finally gets his turn at the Oscar since it’s long overdue!

5. Get the party started with some classic cocktails in honor of your favorite nominees for Best Picture! Serve up this classic Dirty Martini from BBC with olives to celebrate the Wolf of Wall Street and a Harvey Wallbanger from Daisy’s World with the Italian Galliano liquer for American Hustle.

6. Dish up menus inspired by your favorite Best Picture nominee. Thanks to Epicurious, all of the thought into planning a menu is taken care of for you. Chicken Piccata and cannolis for American Hustle or collard greens and johnnycakes for 12 Years a Slave.

7. Popcorn is a must at any movie-themed party, especially one celebrating the Oscars.

Try a twist on traditional movie popcorn with Two Peas and a Pod’s Garlic Rosemary Parmesan Popcorn:

Put out a pretty Popcorn bar like this one with an assortment of flavors, drizzles, salts, melted butters, fillers.

Or have it for dessert with this Buttered-Popcorn Ice Cream Sundae from Bon Appetit or Buttery Popcorn Ice Cream from The Kitchn:

8. Have Irish Coffee, like this one from Delish, available in honor of Captain Phillips when the late night sleepies start to set in so you can make it to the best part – Best Picture winner! Everything gon’ be alright, Irish.

What was your favorite movie this season? Are you rooting for your favorite actor or song? I’m really hoping “Let It Go” pulls off a coup and wins best original song! We really enjoyed that movie this year. I’m also hoping that Leo finally gets his turn at the Oscar since it’s long overdue!


Throw an Oscar Party

The hubs and I are avid movie goers, but admittedly we have not seen as many lately as we would like (thanks massive honey do list). However, the Oscar’s are right around the corner saddled to air March 2nd, which is exciting for fans like us! We have not seen all of the nominees this year, but there are some strong contenders. It’s bound to be a great year for some of our favorite actors.

The show is a bit later than usual this year, but that just means more time to plan an Oscar viewing party worthy of an Academy Award!

How you ask? Let’s turn to the blogging world to find out. Photo credits belong to each individual blogger or page and a link back to the page is attached to each image.

1. To start, send out invitations to everyone reminiscent of getting invited to a shindig at Gatsby’s mansion. Keep it simple, but fancy. Send it electronically for free via evite.com or go old school and mail out invitations. I like these from Twig & Thistle from a few years ago, download the free printable here:

Or this one from Paper Muse Press, which really reminds me of The Great Gatsby parties:

You can also dare to be creative and design your own using the free service at Paperless Post.

2. Of course, you are gonna have to roll out the red carpet for your guests just like at the Oscars.

Thanks to stores like Party City and Party Cheap, you can do this pretty inexpensively!

3. Decorate in style. Float some pearly gold and black balloons. These come cheap from Party City.

Use lots of pretty black and white details. Find a version of this awesome Tassel Garland on Etsy.

Gold plastic plates and silverware are inexpensive, but make a fun statement. Make gold confetti using a large hole punch and heavy duty shiny gold paper.
