{Any excuse to throw a party}

I'm lucky to have found a friend in Arizona who shares my passion for all things crafty and baking-related.
I had to share photos from our Oscar party, because of the all planning and hard work that went in to it! 
Even if it was a month ago.

I love a good excuse to throw a party. 
The planning & dreaming up fun ideas, 
the all-day cooking,
and finally watching the excitement on your guests' faces when they see the final product.

{BBQ Bites for True Grit}

{Homemade garlic & sundried tomato hummus for 127 Hours}

{3 layers deep mac&cheese for Inception}

{Woody, Ham, Buzz & the Aliens cake balls for Toy Story 3}

{Facebook colored vanilla pudding with blueberries for the Social Network}

{Frozen banana bites with dark & white chocolate for Black Swan}

{Winter Salad for Winter's Bone}

{Pink Lady Punch for The Kids Are Alright}

It was a bit ambitious of us to take on all the best picture nominees,
but we had such fun in the process it was worth it.
Thank you to Sarah for making this such a success!
When can we plan our next party?


  1. OMG, those mac and cheese cups look so de-lish! I have a party coming up and I'm going to steal the idea, I hope you don't mind!


  2. By all means, steal away! They were such a hit, and easy clean up since we made them in cupcake holders!

  4. What an amazing idea! Sooooo spot on! Did you get a chance to check out the alumni group stuff I e-mailed you?

    @Jonalynn - I got it & think it all sounds fantastic! I would for sure love to get involved..this week has been crazy which is why I haven't had a chance to email you back! I will soon though!

  6. I love this! This is unbelievably creative and SO cute. Well done!

  7. Oh man! This post totally made me homesick. My sister would throw the BEST Oscar's parties. And now I am out here in Arizona, too far away from her Oscar parties too attend.

  8. Oh my gosh! I'm in love with the Mac&Cheese and cake balls!! So nice meeting you on Saturday! Love meeting other creative minds :-)

  9. This is UNREAL. Come home and feed me please...
