When it comes to dining, Epicurious has created nine delicious and thematically appropriate dinner menus – one for each of the films nominated for Best Picture!
You could select a menu based upon your favorite nominated movie or select a different course from each! The Help inspired menu includes an array of Southern classics, The Descendants menu features Hawaiian favorites, while The Artist meal is replete with signature Old Hollywood dishes.
For an ideal finishing touch for your Oscar gathering, add some of these free printables from Cupcake Wishes and Birthday Dreams! Printables are one of the easiest, least expensive ways to take your party up a notch and this set is ideal for Sunday’s Academy Awards!
