2016 Oscar Night... Our Vintage Picks and What's on the Menu! February 28 2016, 1 Comment
We are excited and have been counting down for the 88th annual Academy Awards. Yes, we do love taking in the Oscars! It's kind of a thing for us. We thought you might enjoy a little sneak peek of how we'll be enjoying the evening at Audrey Would!
We have prepared a fun menu full of pickings to pair with vintage barware, serving pieces and bubbly cocktail drinks.
Who doesn't love the sparkle of crystal and gold on a backdrop of lacquer black? Especially when the the lights go down, the curtain goes up and the spotlight begins to shine!
Our menu includes...
We can't take the credit for all these easy entertaining ideas. No, we actually borrowed the Mini Soup Sipping Station and the Grilled Cheese Bites from Mary Giuliani. Have you checked out her new book?
Afterall, Mary caters to the stars, so why not for the Oscars indulge in choices this professional would suggest? Especially when her motto is Eat, Drink, Play, Recover! Are you with us on that?
We will be enjoying chilled Prosecco cocktails with freshly squeezed juices... blood oranges, pomegranate... to name a few. And serving them in this 22k gold rimmed Czech crystal stemware from Audrey Would!
Caviar and Crème Fraîche is a bit of an Oscar tradition for us, and it will be served in a classic bamboo stem saucer coupe with a small gold spoon from our private collection.
A vintage Courac tray will step in for the incidental tidbit appies and treats. Did you know, Courac trays are pretty unique because their patterns were hand inlaid by master craftsman and fused into the satin black phenolic resin. This tray features a pair of busy little roadrunners, but they remind me of the presenters stepping onto the Oscar stage!
We love it when Oscar time is here. We enjoy sipping and snacking on special treats, and enjoying the sparkle of our Audrey wares that at one time might have been in the hands of the stars in the seats! ;-)
How do you celebrate the Oscars? Do you head out to a party or bring the party home? At Audrey Would! we like to enjoy the Oscars at home, and of course share the evening with others, so it's fair to say we bring the party home!
