    Roll out the red carpet because Oscar season is upon us. The star-studded event is always one of my most favorite times of the year. The glamour, beauty and nostalgia that award show is famous for never fails to disappoint. Did I mention I love watching the ladies step onto the carpet in those breathtaking gowns? Can we talk about those dapper men in suits?! A fantasy of mine is to be a part of the fun, in the meantime I can help you plan an award winning night for you and your best buds!

    Literally roll out that red carpet. Any piece of red fabric will do, visit your local fabric store and request a small role of their best Oscar Red. Trim down the fabric yourself to make a narrow aisle for your guests grand entrance. If you are feeling festive, I say go with the red velvet fabric. You can also pick one up from Party City form $7.

     In addition to classic popcorn, a friendly staple at every movie theater, you know you love picking out some candy to accompany you in the theater. Grab a mix of chocolate, gummy and nuts for your guests to indulge. Put out small bowls of each so they can get samples of their favorites without falling into a sugar comma. Love a good mix of sweet and savory in stylish dishes
