Oscars 2014 Party
Last Sunday I was fortunate enough to host my second Oscars party. The best part? Having such a wonderful boyfriend help me with all the cooking and getting just as excited as I was for the Academy Awards.
We got a few inches of snow over the weekend so I was worried that it would just be the two of us and a bunch of food that we couldn’t possibly eat in one sitting. Luckily, we still had a great turn out with Scott’s family. There was 7 of us including Scott and me.
We made most of the food by hand and I’m pretty impressed with how well we did and how much we were able to get done.
Last year, I came up with the idea of taking all of the movies nominated for Best Picture and creating a dish/entree for each one. I stuck with that same idea this year so here’s what I came up with:
- American Hustle Cheeseburgers
- Captain Phillips Rum & Coke
- Dallas Buyers Club Texas Cheese Fries
- Gravity Ice Cream
- Her Rice Krispie Treats
- Nebraska Popcorn
- Philomena Lemon Bars
- 12 Years A Slave Pizza
- The Wolf of Wall Street Lemmon Drops
I tried to keep it really simple and to make sure all the food complimented each other because I feel like the food I made last year didn’t really mesh well together.
We made just enough food for everybody and there wasn’t any leftovers! Which was kind of bummer because I would’ve loved to have some extra food. However, it made me really happy that they came out, ate, and had a good time. I got all of our party decorations from Target on clearance and Scott made the placards.
Not only did we eat food, but we also filled out our own Oscar ballots. By the end of the awards I added up everyones scores and I got the most right with a score of 12 out of 24 ;)
I’m so glad that Ellen Degeneres was the host this year because she was hilarious and so much fun. And seriously, her selfie game is strongest of all..
Until next year!
