I really love the Oscars. I’m not so excited about the other award shows usually. I’m totally content to just keep up with my friends comments on the Golden Globes or Grammys on Tumblr and Twitter. On occasion, I’ll watch a clip of something funny that happened or maybe catch a few minutes of the show as it airs. The Oscars are by far my favorite. This is probably true for everyone, isn’t it?

A few years ago (2009?), all of our friends piled into Mary’s living room in Lubbock to watch the Academy awards and it was really a great party even without all of the swanky decor in my latest Etsy treasury. Making this week’s party treasury has me so nostalgic for that night and for all of our adventures in Lubbock.

I started it off with some fun ideas for invitations! The washi tape is so neat. I’m going to have to experiment with a roll of it sometime.

For decor, I went with a lot of movie-making and viewing equipment. You all know I’m a sucker for that metal, industrial look and etsy is full of beautiful examples of the aesthetic that fit the movie-making theme.

We have a busy weekend with a few friends coming up Friday and another staying Saturday night, so I think we’ll be taking it easy Sunday and watching the Academy Awards. Do you have fun party plans?
