The 3rd Annual Oscar Party

Our 3rd Annual Oscar Party was on Sunday. We intentionally planned on it being a little smaller than our previous parties as our apartment tends to feel smaller now that William is on the move all of the time, and my parents were also visiting; cramming 20 people in for a long evening didn't sound too appealing. But the party ended up being even smaller than we anticipated. We had a grand total of 10 people attend, but only 6 stayed the whole evening.

It was still plenty of fun and there was plenty of food. We had miniature pigs-in-a-blanket, fruit salad, french bread with cheese and salami, chips and guacamole, Chex/pop corn mix, See's candy, and wine.

I think everyone enjoyed the evening; even though Chris and I didn't see very many of the nominated films this year, he still ended up guessing the most awards correctly and won the prize at the end of the night: two movie tickets! Another guest went home with a little goodie bag of candy and popcorn for seeing the most nominated movies.

We set up a little backdrop for a photo booth but didn't have as many props as I've made in the past, it was still fun and they turned out pretty well.

And Your Hosts

It was a fun little party and I'm so thankful we did it again this year even though it ended up being small. The award show is always more fun when you watch it with people and make a game out of it! And I love an excuse to dress up!
