Party Plans

What an exciting year in movies! The 2014 Best Picture nominees were all very strong contenders and were my inspiration for this year’s Oscar cocktails. Whether you have a viewing party or enjoy the awards show quietly at home, my thematic cocktails bring the excitement of hollywood’s biggest night straight to your living room. So, roll out the red carpet, debate who wore it best, and cheers to all the nominees!
