girls night at the oscars.
i grew up in los angeles, so i am a child of the oscars. we always watched the academy awards in my house — and to this day, i’m pretty sure i’ve never missed one. i’ve thrown a few oscar parties in my day, but i’ve never shared one here, so i thought it would be fun to host an oscar girls night, and make it all about desserts. oh dear, those poor actresses, starving themselves silly all week to squeeze into those slinky gowns, and we’re going to sit here and eat divinely decadent desserts and drink baileys cocktails. oh yes, here’s to drinking your dessert.
there will probably be some gentle mockery of the oscar outfits, too — you know how that goes. as much as i like seeing a beautiful gown, there’s that secret guilty pleasure when someone shows up looking like a glamour don’t and you and all your girlfriends have a go at them. twitter makes it even more fun to watch the oscars these days, too. it’s like one big critique — of the gowns, the hairdos, the speeches. and you get to root for your favorite nominees too. so, i whipped up some oscar-inspired treats and decor to celebrate the special night. i hope you like it! here’s to girls night at the oscars!
