Mommy likes movies. So does my Uncle Kyle and his brother Kevin. I mean, they REALLY get into it. I am not allowed to repeat most of what is said, but Mickey Rooney was not in good standing last year with one of the brothers.
So every year they get together for the Oscars. Or is it the Academy Awards? I can't remember, if Dora isn't involved I lose interest quickly. Speaking of Dora...
Again. I digress.
The Paynes versus The Chandlers - here will be setting this year:
The Kitchen table is losely based off the colors for this year's Govenor's Ball. The flowers were all 1/2 off at the florist on Saturdays -score for Mommy!
Moet & Chandon is the OFFICIAL champagne of the Oscars this year - Mommy printed some photos from the internet. The "Oscar" letters she got from Hobby Lobby.
Twig & Thistle were generous enough to share their AWESOME printable ballots! As well as some other Academy Award goodies that aren't pictured.
Mommy used double sided tape to put the fake champagne labels on Crate & Barrel vases.
The menu this year? Sorry Mr Puck, no mini angus sliders - Mommy was restricted to Sam's Club apps.
I like how the paper oscars look inside our lamps - they flank the sofa/nominee table.
The entrance - Mommy had faux crystals from a few years back Christmas Tree (before my time). There are also purple curtains hanging that are not pictured.
Biggest arguement of the evening? It will be the lottery.
The lottery was implemented three years ago. Half of the money goes into the lottery - and you get an entry for each category you get correct. Only get one right? Still have a shot at the lottery. The fairness and equality of the lottery is debated every year (after Mommy or Daddy win!). Yet every year it returns.
More details and better pictures tomorrow.
I hope Uncle Kyle cries again this year.
