Oscar Party!

You are all probably watching the Oscar's right now, or gearing up to!  But since I live in France, I can't watch the Oscar's live.  I have to wait and download the next day.  Which is fine, because I don't have to watch commercials!  But if I was in the states, I would love to throw an Oscar's party/girls night!  How fun would that be? And an excuse to dress up. :)  So we would have to start with some pretty cute invites.  I like the idea of making it a glamorous night, so I whipped these up real quick:

I just did these myself, and obviously used iStock photo without paying.  But if I was really gonna do it, I would get the ladies at The Pomegranate Basket to do my invites.  They are super creative and would come up with something awesome!

Then we would have to have some awesome drinks, I liked this one:
  • 2 bottles sparkling wine
  • Mango liquor, try Hiram Walker Fruja
Fill flutes with the sparkling wine and add a splash of the liquor.

Then we would have to have some killer appetizers.  I love bruschetta, so I would have to throw that in there.  I also love this baked brie.  I have made it many times to awesome reviews.  Here is a recipe.

 Then we would have to have some pre-viewing games.  Maybe something like sceneit, Oscar style.  We would do voting ballots passing out ahead of time and see who wins in 'our' Oscar's.  We would definitely take pictures of all of our Oscar outfits and talk about who and what we are wearing. :)

Then, of course, I would love to have my guests leave with little party bags!  It's a must!  This is what it would have in it:
  • CD of the Oscar nominated songs, and some more, just for fun
  • Homemade frames to put the Oscar photos in
  • Lip gloss
  • Nail polish
  • Cutely packaged bag of candy
  • Scented lotion


Not this much, but you get the picture! (via)

And this is what I would wear, hair and everything:
I would maybe like a different color, because I am not as tan as Jessica.  But I think it is a beautiful dress and fits nicely.  I guess I would wear this to the real Oscars if I ever went.  I wouldn't wear this to a party, just to be clear.  I might choose something from this set:

So, what do you think?  Would you come to my Oscar party?  What else would you add to the party?  Did anyone out there actually have an Oscar party??  I would love to hear about it!  I will take notes for my future planning needs! :)
