{ Cocktail Party: Oscar Night }

There's something so glamorous about the Oscars. The red carpet, the dresses, the galas, the jewels...

Jennifer has wanted to host a proper Academy Award soiree for ages, and this year, she finally had the chance.

She and her husband invited friends to a Red Carpet Viewing, complete with cocktails, refreshments, games and plenty of fun.

A giant foam board Oscar welcomed guests to the party.

Party goers were photographed in front of an Oscar-themed step & repeat, just like on the real red carpet. 

A handmade "And the Oscar goes to..." banner hung over the trivia question and ballot area - prizes awarded to winners.

Tealights and candles provide a soft glow in the lounge area... Check out the film wrapped around those votive holders for a special touch.

Jennifer hung a banner featuring the posters of the Best Picture Nominees over the viewing area, accented by hanging gold stars and DIY tissue paper poms.

There was champagne,


And a buffet of yummy food, complete with an Oscar-themed cake.

And the cutest Oscar-themed cookies ever.

Yellow flowers and lemons gave bright pops of color to the decor.

And don't forget, pug-shaped cookies in honor of Oscar, the hostess' beloved pug dog, named after the coveted gold statuette.
