Sunday night was the 83rd Annual Academy Awards, and my 3rd Annual Oscar Party.
It was for women only. They were to bring their own drinks, a munchie to pass, and a $5 grab bag gift.
I put my usual decorations up.
The red "carpet" welcoming the women into the room. (It was held in the Sports Lounge at the Club House.)
The welcome sign:
The hallway decorations:
Each star has an actor's name on it.
This is Carole and Cathy. I like to kid and say that they were victims from arm wrestling with me.
The rest of the ladies:
|Cathy, Pat, and Vivian|
|Norma and Shannon|
|Elaine, Sue, and Judy|
|Pat, Sandy and Carole|
|Ellen, Lenore, and yours truly - Pat|
But I must say, the big hit of the evening were these chocolate dipped strawberries.
These were HUGE! This will give you a better idea of just how big these bad boys were!
It was quite a challenge to eat it neatly!
We DID break down and invite our husbands to eat ONLY. They were playing pool right below us on the first floor. It was quite funny because as soon as we got a little loud, one of them would take their pool stick and poke the ceiling a few times. We'd all laugh and stomp our feet real hard. I'm sure we sounded like a herd of elephants.
Sounds great, right? Well, the #2 person could either choose to steal the gift from #1 or pick a new gift. So the larger the number, the better.
Sandy happened to be #1. She got a real cute wine glass that read, "I'm still hot....it just comes in flashes."
Rachel received a wine bag with three small bottles of wine.
Pat received a box of chocolates (which Viv promptly stole!)
Everyone seemed to have a good time. We oohed and ahhed over the dresses and commented about the hairstyles and jewelry.
My friends were amazed at some of the trivia facts I threw out during the show. I guess it helps to subscribe to People Magazine!
I look forward to next year's party, as do my friends!
