>> oscar party .
>> announcer: martha is brought to you by macy's.
>>> how to throw an oscar party on sunday night worthy of hollywood's best, martha stewart from martha 's living.
>> hi. it's fun to eat and drink and celebrate your favorite movies.
>> you'll show us how we can sass up and class up our party.
>> yes. the first thing is the fantastic gold glaze and gold paint that's permanent, dishwasher proof. all available at the craft store. take a glass, your favorite glass, inexpensive glasses and to change them from ordinary to extraordinary, just dip them into just a little bit like that.
>> all right.
>> very nice.
>> and change the whole thing. you modernize, glamorize the glass. it's just adding a little bit of glitz to your glassware.
>> we let it drip for a bit.
>> until it dries. you have it on these little clamps with the hooks.
>> even your clamps are classy.
>> you all have one of these stands at home. you could use a broomstick across two chairs and put newspaper on the floor to catch it.
>> then you bake it.
>> no, no, you don't have to. one of those you might have to bake. read the directions.
>> okay, i will.
>> this is another nice way to make a cylinder. you get flowers every day, don't you, from some admirer?
>> i do. yes.
>> don't throw these away. you just wrap them with gold paper like this. double stick tape. and you make yourself a beautiful holder for a pillar candle . stick the candle in there. light that on your table. make a whole arrangement. isn't that pretty?
>> and no baking.
>> sort of recycling. when you get so many flowers -- you must get a lot, too.
>> oh, my gosh.
>> and for vallen type's day. your room is full. don't throw those away. they're really useful. edible glitter. you can put this op a plate like that. edible.
>> and some sugar or some kind of --
>> dip the glass in a little bit of water and stick it into the edible glitter. you.
>> kind of like a margarita salt.
>> you can do that for any drink but it dresses up the drink and people won't believe that you can eat it, but you can. perfectly safe.
>> isn't that pretty?
>> and don't forget gold stars . you can buy the stars, wrap them around your lapkin.
>> wait, did you just say lapkin?
>> instead of napkin. you can take the glitter and glitter alarminger stars, put them all over your table. this is a big night . you have your favorite movies picked out, your favorite actresses, actors?
>> who do you think will win the best picture ?
>> i think "argo."
>> or "lincoln."
>> are you going to go to an oscar party or are you going to host one?
>> i'm on a plane. i have it tivo'ed or whatever you do nowadays. one of those things. and these are cupcakes that you can glitter.
>> what are with the packages?
>> oh, from right here in lincoln center -- rockefeller center . delicious japanese mochi, edible.
>> very cool. martha , thank you
