Come to my Virtual Oscar Party

Infographic: All about Oscar and the Academy AwardsHere is a great Biography of the Oscars with some interesting facts!

I have always wanted to have an Oscars Party but it is always a Sunday Night so there is school and work the next day. Most of my friends would have to leave to put kiddos to bed.  Sooooo I have decided to have a Virtual Party for all the ideas I would do if I actually had one.

First HERE is a great link to a Ballot for this year I would have everyone fill it out and there would be prizes for the person who got the most right and for the most wrong. Of Course the winner would get there own little statue, if you don’t have time to order one a ken doll and some gold spray paint would do

I would roll out a red carpet at my front door and have a strobe light flashing to mimic flash bulbs. 
Yea I wish that was what my front door looked like
All the chicks would receive Boas and the men Top Hats from the Party Store ( I know you are all thinking have people get glammed up but who wants to sit on a bunch of sequins in my living room watching TV?)

But I would wear one of these cause I’m sassy like that!

Ok so onto the food because that is one of my favorite subject!
So here is where you have to get really creative because you really need to correlate with the movies or stars. Here are some recommendations for this years nominees:
  • The Help – This is really a no brainer Chocolate Chess Pie folks, I will just never look at that pie the same way again! Fried Chicken with biscuits with butter and honey, and being from Ga. Coke a Cola in the glass bottles! Because Cocktails are a must here are recipes for actual cocktails made at the screening party for The Help, all named and based on their characters:
THE SKEETER  Sweet, strong and a little spicy
1 oz. tequila, 1 oz. triple sec, ½ oz. cranberry, Finish with jalapeno-orange foam
THE AIBELENE Subtle, smooth and strong
1 ¼ oz. coffee liquor, ½ oz. bourbon, ¼ oz. amaretto, 1 oz. cream, 1 dash coco nibb bitters
THE HILLY Sour and chilled, with a sharp twang
1 ½ oz. applejack,½ oz. triple sec, ½ oz. lemon juice, Fill with dry hard cider
THE MINNY Strong, with a kick

THE CELIA Sugary sweet, a true Southern treat
1 oz. bourbon, ½ oz. peach liquor, ½ oz. triple sec, ½ oz. lime juice, ½ oz. pomegranate juice
  • Money Ball with Brad Pitt, any kind of ball park food would be great, Pretzels, Peanuts, Hotdogs, Cotton Candy and of course BEER….hmmmm….Beer!
  • The Descendants would be great with Hawaiian Food, BBQ Pork, Hawaiian Chicken,  Fruit Kabobs with yogurt dipping sauce, Pina Coladas, a Blue Hawaiian Cocktail, 
  • Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close – Any Kind of New Your Deli Food, Pizza, Hot Dogs, New York Cheese Cake, Bagel Chips with Hummus, Fig Newtons (to understand this you have to see the movie)
