My Oscar Viewing Party

The 2011 Oscars

Last night we had a party and invited some family over to watch the Oscars. I loved the Party BluPrints Blog‘s guide to hosting the perfect Oscar viewing party and took some ideas from that site. We enjoyed so much yummy food:



"Shrimp Shots" - No alcohol needed!


Mozzarella, Tomato, and Basil Roll-Ups


Chips and salsa (both regular and homemade black bean and corn salsa)


Orville Redenbacher's popcorn! (Love that I didn't have to dirty another dish because it came in it's own bowl)


Vegetable Quesadillas (Delicious! Used Parmesan cheese instead of Cojita cheese and also put filling in the quesadilla before heating the tortillas in the oven)


Cupcakes with gold sprinkles as the "accessories"


Angel food cake and strawberries


Everyone enjoyed the food as we talked about the Red Carpet fashions and which movies we wanted to win. I was voting for The Social Network and Toy Story 3 because, honestly, those are the only movies that I have had a chance to watch. My sister-in-law amazed me with her knowledge of all the actors and actresses that came on screen. One of our favorites was Anne Hathaway so we enjoyed watching her co-host the awards.

Overall, it was a fun night. Before the guests left I had one snap a picture of Sinisa and I:

  1. What a great variety of yummy food. Where did you find your gold cupcake sprinkles?

    • Thanks :) They are actually yellow sprinkles but I think they passed as gold lol. I got them at Walmart. They were in a four pack of “decor sugars”

  2. OK 1) I love it!! What a fun party!! And 2) I’m stoked I get to meet you at Brands & Bloggers – I’m going too!
