Throwing a glitzy Oscars soirée this Sunday night? Our advice is to skip the (stale) sit-down dinner party and instead opt for something that's a bit more fancy and Oscar-worthy. The first step is to set up a DIY stunning champagne cocktail bar. This way your guests can help themselves to fancy cocktails like a champagne cocktail, or spice it up with a gingery gusto. Then make a selection of these classy hors d'oeuvres and nibbles (think baked veggie spring rolls and the most indulgent crostini topped with fig, honey + walnuts or buffalo mozzarella and roasted heirloom tomatoes) for your guests to nibble on while you take in the fashion on the red carpet.
The grand finale? Pop up a huge batch of your favourite kettle corn, sprinkle it with sea salt, lime zest and lots of freshly grated Parmesan and let your guests fill indivdual bags full. We promise your swanky guests will be happily munching just in time to see all the winners (and losers!)
