The following is brought to you by the consumption of a hell of a lot of food and a glass of champagne (or two).
Last night marked the first time I mixed work and play. I had some fun family members over for my first annual Oscars party! It went way better than I thought it would. We had a betting pool in place where we signed our name next to all of the nominees we thought would win (my dad was the lucky winner which pissed all of the guests including me off); walked a red carpet (no, seriously); had delicious food (I ate my weight in muffalata flatbread, salami and cheese), sweets (I also ate my weight in Junior Mints and mini cinnamon bun tarts) and drinks (a little champagne doesn't hurt); and overall had a great bonding experience (four and a half hours is a long time to be together but we survived).
I thought I'd keep the professional stuff (aka my Oscars recap) for HuffPost Blogs, and share pictures from the party with all of you. Next year, I plan to invite more people and keep everything else the exact same. It was everything I could have dreamed of and more. Oh, and I'd try to last in my dress all night. After an hour I changed into leggings and a tank top. How do celebs do it?
And let's be honest, I was just the coordinator. My mom did all of the shopping and cooking, while my dad rolled out the red carpet and hung some decorations. My dog was an adorable little fluffy entertainer and kept us company. Words cannot describe my love for them. Check out these Kodak moments:
Stay tuned for an actual Oscars article. I will post the link on my social media accounts. In the meantime, what did you think of the show? Comment below or tweet me @MissSaverinaS!
