The 83rd Annual Academy Awards are only a few days away! If you're hosting a party, I've compiled a bunch of great ideas to dress up your tables and dining area. The Food Network magazine has some easy ideas for an Oscar party. My favorite one is their simple table setting with napkins folded to look like the award envelope.

For easy party decorations, I always check out my favorite spots:
- the scrapbook paper area at Michaels (I love these sparkly cardboard papers for under $2 each to use as placemats like I did for my niece's birthday party and my family Christmas party). I've also seen inexpensive gold charger plates at Michaels that would match any Oscar decor.
- the $1 area at Target (I found these $1 plastic popcorn containers at the E 117th/East River location in NYC). Sometimes various Dollar Stores also carry these popcorn containers.
- right now Party City online is offering 50% off these Director's Clapboard paper plates ($2.73/18 ct). They look cute, but you'll have to order them now in order to get them in time for Sunday. (In NYC, there's a Party City store in the Union Sq area).

Lastly, you can take ideas from our New Year's Eve party for a star-studded Oscar party! Make your own star-shaped chocolates, popcorn containers (out of plastic cups), and cookie truffles (wouldn't they be cute "wearing" tuxedos?).
