Whether you hang on every word in each acceptance speech or not, the Oscars is a spectacular time to throw a party.
But of course, if you’re going to throw a shindig, you may as well do it in style. That’s why we’ve consulted with three celebrity event planners to help you turn your living room into an A-list-approved soiree.
These entertaining gurus have style, but they also appreciate a good cocktail, and they know what makes a party game fun. And between them they’ve planned parties for Brooke Shields, Ellen DeGeneres, Heidi Klum, Katy Perry, Halle Berry and Diddy. Plus, one even has a tip for scoring invitations created by the same stationer that’s doing the Oscar envelopes…and they’re free!
There’s celebrity caterer and event planner Andrea Correale of Elegant Affairs, who is the go-to caterer of the Hamptons (hint: check out her blog for the recipes to some of her amazing dishes); Details Event Planning founder Lisa Gorjestani, one of LA’s hottest wedding and events planners; and wedding and events planner to the stars, Mindy Weiss.
In other words, your cheese-n-cracker gathering just got a major upgrade.
