Invitation design from Etsy's Maddie and Marry was printed by Shutterfly.

Since the Academy Awards are coming up soon – Sunday February 22 – I wanted to share the recent party we had for my 7th grader’s class. Just photos today, tomorrow I will review simple DIY instructions.

Sourcing: Amazon for statues, tickets, cupcake stars, misc. decorations, popcorn boxes and gold tinsel. Invitation design by Etsy’s Maddie and Marry. Target foil streamers and gold patterned lanterns (not shown). Dessert plates Tiffany & Co. Jars and light strings Fred Meyer.  Gold rim glasses Dollar Tree.



The Italian Soda bar was a favorite with the guests and easy to set up.

Red velvet cupcakes, 3 flavors of popcorn, Redvines and other movie candy filled the dessert bar.

Serving items included an antique brass store riser, Murano compotes, Rock Cut dessert plates added to the table.

A sample of the costume contest prize awaits the category winners of Best Look-Alike, Most Creative, Funniest and Best Overall.  The ballots and DIY ballot box sat adjacent to the sample prize.

Lots of impact yet easy to create.  We used 2 dozen helium filled and 1 dozen air filled balloons for variation.

Two strings of lights with gold tinsel created a fun vibe to the living room.

Foil stars were personalized with guest names and hung with fishing line over inexpensive sheers.
