Oscar Party Inspiration

February 10th, 2011

With the Academy Awards coming up and all the DIY freebies available to host your own award party, I thought it’d be fun to gather some Oscar event inspiration.

I’ve been obsessed with this Oreo Cake since I spotted it in the September issue of Martha Stewart Living. Since the Oscars are traditionally a black tie event, I can’t think of a more appropriate occasion to make one of these! Yumm!

I’m also loving gold lately! Funny how as a girl I loathed it, and now I can’t get enough of the stuff! Gold confetti plates would be perfect for an awards party. Speaking of sparkle, sequined shoes and a glittered clutch would make the for lovely accessories to a red gown or a shimmering black dress.

And before the night is over, gold heart shaped cakes would make for a sweet finish to a glamorous evening!

    Hi! I love your blog, but this is the first time I’ve commented. When I first discovered your blog, I read through it straight to the beginning. No joke! It took a few days, but it was worth it! You’re very inspirational!

    Enjoyed your post. I recently started my own little log of things I enjoy too and I thought it’d share my post about gold sparkles in case you’re interested: http://www.daydreamincolor.com/?p=74

    I forget, but didn’t you throw an Oscar/Dove Party last year? I wasn’t sure if it was Oscar related :) It was fun though!

    i LOVE that dress, wow! Great picks. I feel the same way about gold, it used to be so faux pas!

    Oh, I love this post and all your lovely lovely ideas for OSCAR night. I always make a hole night of The Oscars and have taped the award gala for over 20 years! :D But it’s a struggle to stay awake every time because of the time difference here in Sweden :)
