A Night With the Stars! An Oscar-Worthy Table Made Easy with Ornaments!

Posted on Feb 17 2015 - 3:41pm by Brenda Meehan

Once we pack up the Christmas tree, it can be easy to pack it and forget it…out of sight, out of mind right? Not this month! We snagged a few sparkling stars that went from tree to table and truly shined for Oscar night! Academy Awards night doesn’t have to be all gold and red. Switch it up and keep it simple with a black and silver theme…adding bits of colorful shine throughout. We chose purple as our pop of color…and this Award-Worthy table came together in no time!

By “puddling” and layering shimmering black mesh-ribbon over a white table cloth, dimension and texture are created quicker than a paparazzi’s camera snap! By selecting a few tall shimmering candle holders in varying sizes for height and shine, your table will sparkle in the spotlight. Be sure to add tea lights to each for light! Drape a silvery necklace or two carefully between candle holders, (as to not touch any flame) and your glamorous centerpeice is complete.


Nothing says glitz and glamour like black china on silver. Layer black dishes over silver charger plates and add the “piece de resistance”…your glittery ornaments! Pull a black cloth napkin through each ornament and stand carefully atop each plate and BOOM…this adds another layer of dimension to the table. Each star is a burst of color for each place setting.

We found these mini picture frame place cards for a bargain years ago, and waited for the picture perfect time to feature them. We attached them to simple picture holders to serve as place-card holders! Print each guest’s name in the official Oscar font and you’re golden!

Speaking of Golden…(not the globes, that it…) Stay tuned tomorrow for a little sneak peek of our official Judge’s Green Room Table from last year…we go ALL OUT for our VIP green room with ballots, swag bags, martini bars, microphones and more…it’s truly a sight to behold! We even include a trophy…which Chris describes as “too crazy to explain”…but we really have fun with it.  It doesn’t have to be complicated to be OSCAR-WORTHY.
