When I was a little girl, my Aunt Mary used to always throw the most amazing Oscars and Grammys award parties. My cousins and I would do our hair up and put on a fancy dress. One year, I remember putting on a sparkly glitter dress that lit up the whole room. I guess not a whole lot has changed since those days, since I still LOVE award shows, I love entertaining, and I love things that shine with glitter.
Speaking of entertaining, are you planning to throw a Grammys or Oscars party this year? I have a few fun entertaining ideas that will make you a show-stopping hostess. Five years later, your friends will probably remember this party, rather than who won album of the year.
-Microphone Cupcakes: An ice cream cone will pose as your microphone base, and the cupcake will pose as the top of your microphone. Bake cupcakes inside of ice cream cones. Add frosting on top and decorate with sprinkles.
-Movie Theater Popcorn: Take old fashioned popcorn bags and fill them up with either popcorn, or, for an extra sweet and salty kick, add an assortment of candy to it.
-Music Note Cookies: Using a music note cookie cutter, cut out shaped cookies and decorate them.
-DIY Red Carpet Photo Booth: Set up a fun backdrop with red roll out carpet. Have trophies and other fun party props to pose with in photos.
