Oscar Party 2013

Oscar Party 2013

This year marked my third annual Oscar party. I can’t get enough of the Oscars – I love the dresses, the celebrity gossip, and the celebration of great film making. I also love ANY excuse to have a party!

Of course, I busted out my recycled frapucino bottles….

Whole Foods has one of my favorite selections for reasonably-priced, beautiful blooms. It’s just not a party without fresh flowers on the table.

A little friendly competition thanks to these great bingo cards from How About Orange!

I had my little painted utensils on hand for cupcake-eating assistance.

And it’s never an Oscar party without popcorn (and some yummy mix-ins!).

I loved the way my Glitter + Grain garland looked draped in our light fixture. It instantly felt like a fancy pants chandelier!

It was a happy accident stumbling on these mint oreos. Easy peasy, and who doesn’t love an Oreo?

The spread….

And some green punch to match:

1 part blue Hawaiian punch
1 part pineapple juice
2 parts Sprite Zero

These are delicious with some champagne splashed in!

Oscar fondue | life in yellow

Of course, Oscar was on hand, overseeing the fondue…

Apples, bread, broccoli and cauli are some of my favorite dippers for cheese fondue. This night, I used Emeril’s recipe, but might cut back a tad on the amount of lemon juice it calls for.

And despite my poor guests being hassled by the paparazzi, I think the little get-together went off without a hitch! 🙂

  • I love it!!

    Such a good idea to use recycled frap. glasses. I never know what to do with mine if I save them but now I’m going to start a collection.

    I love your garland! Do you reuse it? I made some once but they got all tangled up that I couldn’t reuse it. I hope Page’s recovery (and yours) is going well!

  • Love it all! This color scheme is definitely one of my favorites!

  • Oh my!! My Oscar party come true! I love what you did with the movie theme and beautiful green shade. I tried to see all of the movies up for best picture, and I am so into the celebrity buzz on the Red Carpet : ). Hopefully I will get my Oscar post up soon!

  • Hello,

    I was wondering where you bought those big paparazzi stickers for the wall? Thank you and hope to hear from you soon!

  • Hi Agatha! They are just printed on clear plastic and held up with Scotch tape — I found them at a local party supply store, but have seen similar products online if you search for “paparazzi silhouette decor” 🙂 Hope that helps!
