Award-Worthy Dessert Tray Ideas for Your Oscars Party

After patiently watching all of those wins, losses, and award robberies, your guests are going to need a sweet treat to get them back on their feet. Top off your Oscar’s celebrations with an award-worthy dessert tray.

Presentation is Key

Start from the tray and build up – our DIY Elegant Chalkboard Serving Tray makes it easy to label the contents of your spread and adds an extra touch of sophistication to the décor. If chalkboard doesn’t tickle your fancy, serve them on a DIY Mirrored Serving Tray instead. Once you have the tray ready, it’s time to focus on what you’ll serving.


Get Glam with Gold

Award ceremonies are a time to let your inner glamour shine! Pair your glitzy award party décor with a sparkly dessert spread to match by adding gold details to your food like glamorous gold cupcake toppers or even better, edible glitter!


Serve It on a Stick

Chances are, your guests are glued to their seats during the exciting announcements. Whether they are lounging on your favorite couch or sitting on the foldable chairs, serve up a sweet that’s easy to eat with decadent desserts on a stick like our Chocolate Drizzled Strawberry Donut Kabobs or Caramel Apple Dessert Kabobs. You can even purchase/make bite-sized brownies and just stick a tooth pick in them – so simple yet sweet.


Make it a Movie Theatre Combo

What’s a movie themed soiree without the most traditional cinema snack of all time – popcorn! No paying $8 a bucket here, instead make your own popped kernels of goodness. Your dessert bar is sure to cause some serious drooling when you serve our Peanut Butter Popcorn or traditional Homemade Cracker Jacks

Use these free Oscar popcorn box printables from The Popcorn Factory to take your snack decor to the next level! 

You’ve got your popcorn, now all you need for the ultimate cinema combo pack is the theatre-sized candy! I love this simple touch that makes it really feel like you’re hitting the big screen (minus the uncomfortable seating).
