1920’s NOW

I love love luuuuv awards season. Watching the fashion, judging the speeches, seeing who gets tipsiest at the Golden Globes, voting on the SAG Awards, and of course, toasting the year’s finest at the Oscar’s. Rather than having an Oscar party this year, I instead invited a small group of gals over for a screening of The Artist. I hadn’t seen it yet, and was fortunate enough to get a screener from SAG, so it was a great excuse to entertain—because most hadn’t seen it. And of course, it went along to win best pic! Highlights below.

Light salad of cucumber, corn, cherry tomatoes, carrots, and mustard/herb marinated chicken.

Lights to set a glow for the screening.

White chocolate popcorn in these cute mini popcorn bags.

Dessert inspiration, from the March 2012 issue of Food Network Mag. Because everyone needs candy at the movies.

Caramel dip mixed with peanuts (and I also threw in some Heath bar crunch!)

Oops, I don't own a glass bowl to make a double boiler. So I used a wine glass. Typical...

Chocolate still melted perfectly!

Icing the pound cake

Caramel goo on top

Nailed it! Ehhh....

This was so easy, and literally one of the best desserts I've EVER made, eaten, YUM. It might have also been breakfast the next morning...

Lastly, films like The Artist and Midnight in Paris brought 1920’s fashion back in a big way. And it’s super cute! Check out some fun, accessible ideas below.
