Imaginary Oscars Party

Since this time of year is pretty crazy for me, I can't actually have a full-fledged Oscars Party with my friends. I would love to, though, so I thought I would invite you all to my Imaginary Oscars Party, the elements of which were crafted by far more creative bloggers. That's basically where ideas for my real parties come from anyway.

Did you enjoy your lovely invitation? It was designed by Twig & Thistle. They also designed the little popcorn holders that I lovingly printed for you.

Of course, we will be playing Oscar Bingo, thanks to Jess at How About Orange. The squares have clever things like "Brad Pitt is sporting a beard" and "more than 5 people get up to accept one award."

To toast the winners, we will be drinking Chambord and Champagne, a recipe made famous by the Hostess with the Mostess. She also thought up the idea for my gorgeous centerpieces. Aren't they great?

During the red carpet walk, guests can fill out their ballots, and see how well they can pick a winner. 

And, more important than the awards themselves, are the baked goods. Of course I have had the time and energy to replicate every single one of the connoisseur of the cake pop's  film-themed creations. Behold.

The Oscar cookie. Click Here for movie popcorn brownies, Coraline button cookies, Upcakes, Marquis cookies, and a lobster-topped Julie & Julia cupcake, complete with a candy pearl necklace. Genius.

If you're not full after all those treats, I have some candy for you, in really cute packaging, designed by Twig & Thistle. Of course it coordinates with your invites!

Dress code for the party is, of course, "worst dressed" thrift store attire - break out the ball gowns from the 80s!

I hope you had fun! 


  1. That was a wonderful Imaginary Party :D Love the Movie Marquis Cookies.
