No Oscars watching party would be complete without some bubbly! Champagne is the favored drink for celebrations like this one, but do not feel restricted to simply popping open a bottle and pouring drinks. There are several exciting and fun champagne cocktails that your guests will be delighted to sample. One unique champagne drink is the Cork County Bubbles. This cocktail uses a mixin that is made in Ireland’s County Cork, hence the name. Herbal, woody Jameson 12-year Irish whiskey is what makes this champagne cocktail so unique.

Decorate the tables with delicious chocolate award statues that your guests will get to take home with them. This fun party favor makes for great table decor, a fun photo prop, and a cool take-home gift for your guests. The solid statues are 6.5 inches tall. Choose from milk or dark chocolate. The award statues have a flat bottom and stand up in a bag. Choose the color ribbon you prefer (to match your theme) and add a tag if desired. You could even add an award name to each statue. These statues will help you create a red carpet worthy event for your ultimate Oscars party.
