You Like Me, You Really Like Me!

The Academy Awards is this weekend and we always have a few friends over to celebrate and watch the show. Of course we tally the winners and the night's best guesser gets a little trophy of sorts. We've had a mug decorated with an Oscar statue, a First Place blue ribbon, a little gold trophy and a magnetic picture frame with Oscar Winner printed and framed. 

We always dress as something from one of the year's nominated movies (and you can dig deep and go for something for nominated for Sound Editing if you need to) and every year it's a mad rush to figure out what to wear. I still don't know what I'll be doing, but I'm leaning toward blue face paint and blue hair spray for the little blue character, Sadness, from Inside Out...up for Animated Feature. I don't plan to be sad, but she's cute and blue.

Here are some Oscar ideas if you want to throw a party or just jazz up your family's viewing. 

A popcorn bar...interesting. I love popcorn, especially taco popcorn, where you sprinkle on some dry taco seasoning and throw in some Cheeze-Its. Tasty!

Tuxedo Mousse, yes, please. But only if someone else makes them :)

Oscar Cupcakes...these are pretty advanced but fun.

And these seem more doable and less work, but just as fun!

Love this idea too, I think some of my friends might fight over the Mrs. Clooney tag.

Okay, that's it for today, let me know if you watch the Oscars or fill out a ballot...the best kind of voting is the low-pressure kind. If I get the Best Picture wrong, well, I don't get a plastic trophy. I'm okay with that. 

Happy Wednesday!


  1. I wanna come to your party!!!! And I want to see pictures of your costume!

    1. Cornelia, come on over! I will certainly consider posting photos :)

  2. What fun! We go to my sister-in-laws. Everyone throws in a few bucks & we vote with the ballots. Funny thing is I don't watch many of the movies but it is fun & always food involved.

    1. Nice--the winner really wins at your party! I think I've seen two movies from this year, it's kinda sad. But it'll help me decide which ones I want to get on dvd!


I love hearing from my crafty friends!
