Focus on items that are easy to make and present, so you can enjoy the show too!

For an outside-the-box Cheese display, check out the photo gallery – we found those cheese stands at our local Home Goods store.

Popcorn –  Who doesn’t love popcorn while watching an awards show!  We got these great flavors from Al’s Popcorn.  They have every flavor imaginable!

Keep the bar simple & stick with what you like.  We are big fans of anything with bubbles….

Sparkling Rose makes a great alternative to champagne.  On today’s segment we featured Billecart magnum, Rose Moet, Pommery Pink Pop.  If you want a little help choosing a champagne or rose that’s right for you head over to Macarthur Beverage.  Their team is so knowledgeable they will be sure to help you find the right match!

Dessert! – Godiva of course!  As a major sponsor of an after party in LA, adding some Godiva to your party is a way of bringing a little of the AList to your guests.

Creating a Red Carpet Backdrop that doubles as a photo wall/step & repeat – take advantage of the opportunity to capture some fun images of you with your friends.  Using a few props and you iPhone camera and you can be ready to go.

SPECIAL NOTE:  Use the Slow Motion camera option on your iPhone for some really hilarious images.

With these tips you’ll be able to throw together an A-List viewing party in a flash!
