Oscar Recap!

Happy Monday lovies!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Our Oscar Party was so much fun last night...and of course I was THRILLED to see Mila Kunis wear the gorgeous lilac Elie Saab dress that I blogged about here!


I was literally showing my dress picks to my girlfriends last night and then low and behold...there Mila was wearing this beauty!  Doesn't she just look stunning??? 

Everyone brought an appetizer or two to share at the party.  My contribution was Ina Garten's Savory Palmiers.


These are comprised of puff pastry and then a filling of pesto, goat cheese, sun-dried tomatoes and pine nuts!  Working with puff pastry is VERY easy...but the end result is quite elegant.  Your guests will think you spent hours prepping and making these appetizers, when in fact it only takes about 10 minutes.

For dessert, I followed a recipe from a fellow blogger Homemade by Homan.  The Snicker Cupcakes were a huge hit!



I used a dark chocolate cocoa powder and poured the caramel on top (instead of on the inside).  These were the perfect balance of rich chocolate decadence...and the caramel wasn't bad either!


Of course no Oscar Party is complete without some champagne!!!

We had a lot of great food, great drinks, great company...and we all placed bets on who would win in each category!  I'm sad that the Awards Season is over now!  I definitely need to go watch the King's Speech..stat!

Check back tomorrow for some fun and exciting news...someone {it's me!} just won her first giveaway!  Details tomorrow!

  2. I knew I had seen that dress before when I saw it on Mila!! I just couldn't remember where I had seen it! So funny :) She looked amazing, didn't she? It was my favorite dress of the night; though I really loved Natalie Portman's as well with her cute little baby bump!

  12. Those palmiers look fantastic Natasha. I make a puff pastry appie like that with store-bought pesto, parmesan and cream cheese - so easy and they DO look so pretty! Everyone always asks for the recipe. I must try your (BFC) version - they are making me hungry!

    How fun is it that you had an Oscar party? :)
