.Oscar Party Menu.

Since the Oscars start at 5:00pm, I figured I'd better serve my guests some food.
And isn't that party etiquette 101. Serve good food.
So here are some suggestions, and a sneak peek on what I may be serving for my Oscar Themed Appetizers
{based on Best Picture nominees}

The Tree of Life / Fresh Veggies and dips or Brie cheese {The Brie of Life! ha!}

Any other suggestions for some creative appetizers?? 


  1. Those apple pops are too freakin cute! I only wish I had the time to put something like this together!


  2. Wow these are all amazing ideas. I can't wait to see the whole thing come together. Good Job. You should definitely do the chocolate pie for the help I'm pretty sure there are a lot of recipes for it out there.

    1. I kinda HAVE to make the chocolate pie work, don't I? Without the 'special' ingredient.......

  3. I want to come!! How much fun is this going to be!! Take lots of pics!!

    Because Shanna Said So

    1. I wish you could come! And I will overload you folks with pictures the very next day. I promise :)

  4. Love! How fun. I keep fantasizing about doing a dinner party sorta open house for our new place doing just appetizers. One of these days...

  5. Love your ideas!!! Can't wait to see photos of your party!

  6. Wow, I loved this party menu! Thank you so much for sharing food list here. Have you ever been to the annual events at Chicago event venues? Actually I want to plan a party there and want to get some reviews. Please share if you have any idea!
