What a crazy long, politically-charged Oscar evening! Wow! Thank goodness we had drinks a plenty and savory snacks galore to help keep us happily buzzed and comfortably satiated throughout the four hours of Oscar drama! Plus a pretty backdrop for glamour shots at every commercial break! Everyone needs a red carpet moment!
Like most things in life, I always underestimate the amount of time it's going to take to get my place entertainment ready. This year was no different as I ran around 30 minutes before guests were set to arrive, Swiffer in hand and still in my sweatpants with only half my make-up done and half the appetizers complete. Despite the last minute stress, everything came out OK and the night was a lot of fun. At the shows end I think we were all in a daze, suddenly aware that it was 12:30 (way past our bedtimes!) and in shock over Spotlight taking Best Picture. I now have a lot of movie watching to do to catch up on all of the winners (and losers) from the evening.
I hope some of you were able to use our invites and ballots to host your own red carpet event!
