2012 DIY Oscar Party!

Thursday, February 9th, 2012

I’m so excited to share my Oscar printables for this year! I wasn’t sure if I was even going to do them but I’ve been getting a ton of requests for them and I got really excited about updating the set. The theme this year is black, white, gold and kraft paper. I know, super original, but I think the design is a playful mix of formal and slightly rustic hints.

This year’s entry  contains invites, paper oscar statuettes, popcorn boxes, drink tags and of course ballots; everything you need to throw a red carpet party in style! Oh, and I finally put together an “Oreo Cake” that I’ve been obsessed with since I saw it the Martha Stewart 2010 September issue. Tasty, but mighty dangerous indeed!

OSCAR INVITATION
This simple invite gets some glamour when paired with a black string & button envelope. Add a little extra fun by hinting at the Oscars and addressing the envelope with the title “and the invitation goes to…”

PAPER OSCAR STATUETTES
I didn’t know if this idea was going to work but I knew I wanted to create a three-dimentional form of the oscar somehow for the decorations and table setting. These turned out to be far easier than I ever anticipated and added the perfect amount of Oscar spirit!

POPCORN BOXES
What movie night would be complete without popcorn? I couldn’t resist, so these popcorn boxes can be printed and folded together to complete the scene. I filled cellophane bags with homemade popcorn, then tied them off with b&w ribbon and placed them into each box. You could easily skip the bag and just fill the boxes with popcorn too.

DRINK TAGS / PLACE CARDS
These simple tags play double-duty as both drink tags and place cards at a table setting. Simply print, cut and secure by interlocking the provided adjustable slots. Write in guests name in advance or let them do it themselves when they arrive.

OSCAR VOTING BALLOTS
Last but not least, every Oscar party needs a voting ballot! I recommend sending these out with the invitation or having guest arrive early in order to have time to vote for who they think will win. It’s a fun way to get everyone engaged and enlists some competitive spirit.
Tally up the results and finish the night by awarding the player with the most correct votes a movie themed prize or an Oscar Statuette!

I hope some of you are planning an Oscar party this year and perhaps some of these printables will come in handy. I’m excited to see who’ll win and I have my fingers crossed for the Artist to take Best Picture. If you haven’t already seen it, I highly recommend it. It’s by far one of the best films I’ve seen in awhile and such a cute story!

DIY St. Patrick’s Day Coasters

Wednesday, March 9th, 2011


No St. Patrick’s Day is complete with out a good Irish beer! Why not celebrate in style with these shamrock inspired coasters?! Substitute with sparkling cider for little ones and everyone can join in the fun!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED
Color Printer
Paper
Blotter paper or thick cardstock
Spray Adhesive
Craft Knife

INSTRUCTIONS
To make these printables more coaster-like, simply print template onto regular text weight paper then glue them to a thicker cardstock with a spray adhesive. I use thick blotter paper or watercolor paper which can be found at any art supply store.

Once glued together, using a craft knife, carefully trim out each coaster along solid grey line. If printed with an ink jet printer be warned that the ink may bleed when dampened. An alternative is to either print with a color laser printer or have them laminated. Sláinte!
