So, the Oscars are tonight, and since I love to host friends and family, I’m always looking for an excuse to get people together. So, why not host an Oscars inspired party?
I went with a black, white and gold colour scheme for this table.
For the centerpiece, I did three “nests”, made with gold/white yarn, and a black feather boa. In the middle of each nest, I put a jar with some roses inside.
This shows one of the place settings. For some weird reason, there’s a bit of a glare on it that makes the napkin look dirty, but it’s not…. I hope….lol.
I used the same chargers that I used for my New Year’s Eve tablescape, featured here.
The three gold runners are fabric scraps that I usually use at Christmas to make some of my pillows look like presents. But they also work well here too.
My favourite thing by far about this tablescape is the little bow ties on the wine goblets. I made them using leftover fabric from making my daughter’s headboard.
I love this table, because the colours are very versatile. It could easily be used for New Year’s Eve, a fancy Father’s Day Dinner, or any other event that makes you think “black tie”.
I added some printed pictures of Oscar Winners from the past. I’ve got Greta Garbo, Gregory Peck, Audrey Hepburn, and Clark Gable. My printer was running out of ink, but I love how they ended up looking like watercolour paintings of the actors. Yay for happy accidents 🙂
Here’s a close up for the food. Omg, the chips in chocolate…. so so so so so yummy!
After a nice dinner, I plan to sit down, eat some
chocolate covered chips carrots, and watch the Oscars. Fingers crossed for Big Hero 6. Love that movie.
That’s it for today. I’ll be back on Wednesday with a new post. See you then.
