Academy Awards Oscar Party Ideas

by Jillian Leslie on


We were asked by Velveeta and Ro*Tel to come up with ideas for an Academy Awards Oscar party and I have to admit, this was a lot of fun!

The first thing I did, was print out this set of free Oscar party printables designed exclusively for us by PartyChic. The collection includes invitations, cupcake toppers, tented cards, and an Oscar ballot.

The printable ballot is a perfect activity for your guests watching the show. I suggest a prize for the person who predicts the most wins. Maybe he or she gets to go home with the Oscar!


Now for the party decor... First thing I needed was gold. So I went to my local party supply store and bought a few gold stars, a sparkly gold garland, and of course a plastic Oscar to decorate my buffet.


I wanted to keep the food low-key, not too expensive, and definitely fun, so I bought some cupcakes which I topped with these Oscar toppers...


I took some donut holes (my favorite!) and sprinkled them with gold sugar just to give them a little sparkle.


I put out popcorn and vintage colas...


And for the main course I decided to make Philly Cheese Steaks with queso dip, which were so easy to put together  and so yummy!

I took thinly sliced roasted sirloin, added grilled red pepper and onion, and topped them with Velveeta-Rotels Queso Dip.




1 lb. (16 oz.) VELVEETA®, cut into ½-inch cubes 1 can (10 oz.) RO*TEL® Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies, undrained


  1. Mix ingredients in 2-qt. microwaveable bowl.
  2. Microwave on HIGH 5 min. or until Velveeta is completely melted, stirring after 3 min.
  3. Serve with assorted cut-up fresh vegetables, crackers, or tortilla chips. If you're having more than a few friends over, simply double the recipe and use one whole 2 lb. package of Velveeta  and 2 cans of Ro*Tel.
I hope you enjoyed my spread!! oscar-party-ideas-31A
