This past Sunday I hosted an Oscars viewing party for my birthday...
Behind me is a faux photobooth/backdrop that I made with four pieces of large foamcore which can be purchased at Michaels from the framing department. I covered each piece with gold sequined fabric from Jo-Ann's, and then stuck them to the wall with velcro tape.
Outfit details: Badgley Mischka gown//Forever 21 earrings//Haute Bride bracelet (my wedding bracelet)--similar//
Left: Rose frosted cake made by yours truly. I was worried this cake would turn out to be Cake Wrecks worthy, but I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to frost! Right: One of the special cocktail menus.
I wanted to make an 'Oscar' to have on display at the party, so I found this ken doll at Target and basically scalped him and then painted him gold.
Guests filled these ballots out, and at the end of the award's show, the winner got a special prize.
Upon entering, guests were asked to tape one of these cards with actors' names on another's back, and that person had to guess who they were wearing on their back. This was a great ice breaker!
Did you watch the Oscars this year? Who was the best dressed in your opinion?
