Award Winning ideas for your own Green Carpet night…

With Oscar Sunday fast approaching, here are a few quick ideas for an award-winning Oscar watching soiree, EcoStyle of course.

Best seat in the house: While the Golden Globes is a full-scale dinner setting, the Oscars is all about the awards and of course the seat fillers.

  • So, move your dining room chairs to the living room and turn your dining table into your grab & go concession stand.
  • Keep it simple – Tea sandwiches & Shortbread (The King’s Speech), Boston Clam Chowder soup shots (The Fighter), Black & White cookies (Black Swan) and of course Sweet & Savory popcorn packs (recipes on popcorn.org). 
  • Cocktails are key so serve us Spicy Bloody Mary’s (yes, a nod to the Fighter), White & Black Swans (2 oz vodka, 1 oz coffee liqueur – light cream for the white versions) or a sustainable sparkling (Pommery Pop Earth – pommery.com).

A little Oscar Gold:

  • Repurpose your gold round ornaments from the holidays and string through fishing wire (knot about 6 inches apart) to create an easy & eco Oscar chandelier over your seating area to add a little glitz & glam. You can also fill a tall glass cylinder with a bunch of ornaments and place on the sides of your TV stand or mantle to create your own Oscar stage.
  • Gold mercury glass votives (target.com has great ones) offer a soft glow of gold which makes any party sparkle. These are such a great deal since they are highly usable for any occasion. Scatter everywhere & flicker away!

Tomorrow’s post…all about the (gift) bag!
