10 Things You Need for the Best Awards Night Party Ever

Spoiler alert: It's all gold!

Hollywood's big night is fast approaching, and all the stars are likely putting the finishing touches on their red carpet looks. Even if your invite to the black-tie affair was mysteriously lost in the mail (that's why we didn't get invited, right?), you can still celebrate in style.

Hosting a viewing party is probably more fun than having to spend hours in formalwear anyway. And it's so easy to add a little Hollywood glamour to an at-home affair; all you need is one secret ingredient — gold! Decorating with gorgeous gilded accents or using metallic plates and cups to serve your food and drink options will immediately make your own living room feel ready for the silver screen. Read on for 10 products your viewing party needs.
