With the Oscars on Sunday, you've got the perfect excuse to throw a party. Because most of your guests will be parked on the couch or floor all night, eyes glued to the TV, you'll want to whip up plenty of small bites that require little fuss. A few snacks, sweets, and a cocktail (for good measure) should do the trick. These links will help.
