How to Host the Ultimate Movie Night

Throw a blockbuster bash or host an elegant Oscar party bursting with romantic glamour!

Channel your inner Bogie or Bacall with classy cocktails served in timeless crystal barware. For a modern twist, add exotic liqueurs, such as Pama pomegranate and Hpnotiq. Shown here: Waterford Crystal Lismore martini glass.


Match your menu to the showbill: Moroccan delicacies alongside Casablanca, or an Asian-inspired feast paired with a Bruce Lee classic. Shown here: Grosgrain dinner and salad plates by Vera Wang Wedgwood.


Having trouble picking your movies? Try a double-feature, such as Love Hurts: West Side Story and Romeo + Juliet. I Love New York: Annie Hall and When Harry Met Sally… or Remember When: Singles and Reality Bites.


House exotic blooms in an artist vase. Shown here: John Rocha Black Cut vase, votive and candlestick by Waterford Crystal. Keep pesky popcorn kernels off the couch by thinking outside the bowl. A teacup can serve double duty as both popcorn scoop and bowl. Shown here: Jasper Conran Platinum teacup and serving bowl by Wedgwood.


Add some movie magic by showcasing your evening’s bill in an elegant marquee centerpiece. Accent with party snacks, such as licorice and decadent chocolate and nuts. Shown here: Grosgrain 5-by-7-in. double invitation frame by Vera Wang Wedgwood.


Since eating off your lap can be a balancing act, sturdy placemats make inexpensive trays and allow guests to enjoy their meal and movie unencumbered.

Make self-serve easy with nesting tables turned wine bar.
