If your invitation to the 83rd Academy Awards somehow got lost in the mail (like mine), I have a great way to celebrate the amazing films that will be honored on Sunday, February 27 like Black Swan, The King's Speech, The Fighter, The Kids Are All Right, The Social Network, True Grit, and 127 Hours.
Why not host a glamorous event in your own home? Take inspiration from the statute itself and decorate with gleaming gold -- not to mention plenty of stars.
If you are looking to add a little shimmer to your Oscar event (or any party), I found some great pieces to make your space worthy of any glitterati.
Lastly, toast all the nominees with these cocktail and hors d'oeuvres...
