I've had a few people email in to ask if I have any ideas for Oscar parties. With the Oscars airing soon, I thought I'd throw out a few ideas I saw that are totally doable.
Family Fun magazine did a spread a couple years ago on several fun Halloween themed parties - one being "Hollywood Halloween". The party was super cute and creative and some of the ideas would work brilliantly for the Oscars. Let me show you....
First, you need the coveted Oscar. Easy! Goodwill has TONS of barbies. Go pick up a few, spray paint them gold! Then hot glue him to a stand you've painted gold as well. It will have to be something weighted like a tuna can. Make sure you buy the lightest male barbie you can find.
It works beautifully, see?
And see how they used him as a centerpiece by having him hold a ball or roses? Easily done. Pick up a ball of floral oasis and stick in flowers that match your color scheme.
Another decoration is the director's clap board. Grab some black foam core and either draw out the layout with chalk or paint pen and get stick on letters. Add a foam core hinge with a brad.
Food! One of the easiest things they showed was using a coffee mug tree to hold pretzels.
Then purchase a used reel, spray paint it gold and use it to hold dips for your pretzels.
A couple things that are more time consuming and detailed would be to wrap up hot dogs in tissue paper tuxedos.
And also dress up your champagne with felt!
A few great ideas to get your mind working on what is doable for your Oscar get together! If you throw a party, I'd love to show the post photos on the blog! Contact me!
Just color the stamp with the markers and stamp the plate!
You can have fun, custom plates for any occasion! Add a monogram, a graphic, lines, etc. Your design is only limited to what types of stamps you can find! Plus, the food markers are edible and wash off so you have a clean slate (plate) for next time!
Have you ever seen amazing cakes like these, wanted to make them for your children, but had no idea or the creativity to pull it off?
Parenting magazine has a great gallery on their site that shows you amazing cakes and then points out all the details, the recipe and how to cut the cakes to make the pieces. See how they point out what to use to make the details?
