It’s the most wonderful time of the year….and I’m not talking the Andy Williams kind.
I LOVE the Oscars and everything that goes along with it; Joan Rivers, Wolfgang Puck, shiny bald gold men, long winded musically interrupted speeches, squinting celebrities trying to read teleprompters ABSOLUTELY everything about the Oscars makes me happy.
This year for my at home Oscar Viewing Party, I went on a mission to find THE perfect TV Watching/Food Serving table ever created in the history of tables and LOOK WHAT I FOUND!!!
Take a peek at the Tray Chic coffee table by GRANGE
It is the perfect table that allows my guests to sit and enjoy the show while snacking and drinking at the same time. Look, I even put candy and popcorn in the drawers for my pals to munch on while watching the show.
This year, I’m even more invested in making my party shine since fellow Georgetown Alum/Client, Bradley Cooper and my favorite actor of ALL time Robert Deniro are both nominated for their work in Silver Linings Playbook. So just as a Giants fan would root for their favorite team…I am gonna fly my Cooper/Deniro flag with pride Sunday night.
Silver Linings will serve as the inspiration for my menu:
MINI PHILLY CHEESESTEAKS TWO WAYS
MINI CRAB CAKES WITH CHIVE REMOULADE
MINI GRILLED CHEESE WITH OTTO BLACK TRUFFLE HONEY
MAC & CHEESE CUPCAKES WITH BACON & CHIVES
And of course PIGS IN A BLANKET (just cause I never have a party without these guys!)
Why a LIFE OF PI Stand of course.
MINI PECAN PIE
MINI CHOCOLATE SMORES PIE
MINI BANANA TOFFEE PIES
While I always serve the official liquid of the Oscars: Moet & Chandon champagne. This year I’m going to let my guests play mixologist and pick the “Best Pitcher”.
Will it be the….
The Argo Puck Yourself (Lemonade & Basil)
The Life of Pomegranate
Zero Dark Minted Grapefruit
Beasts of the Southern Peach
And my FAVORITE touch this year is provided by artist and Pal Trey Speegle

And lastly, what kind of host would I be if I sent my guests home unprepared for the next morning?
And the Oscar goes to:
The Silver Linings Hangover Kit which includes a small box of cereal, coconut water, asprin and recovery eye cream…ahhhhhh!!
No matter how you celebrate Sunday, I hope you have a blast!!
