How to Host an Impressive Oscars Party on a Budget

Stab your hard cheese cubes, olives, fresh fruit, and bacon-wrapped figs with these shimmery toothpicks that celebrate the theme of the evening: celebrating the stars. The double-sided star party picks are sold in sets of 24. The stars are constructed of smooth shimmery gold (not chunky, glittery gold) cardstock, about 1 inch in diameter and mounted on standard round toothpicks. Price: $7.75 for 48 picks, which seems like a good amount. But you can go lower or higher. And whip up some of our appetizers, and check out our tips on how to set up your room for an Oscar party.
