Party Time

The Oscars are finally here and Sunday night prosecco is definitely in store. If you’ve been reading c’est moi natasha for a while, then you know I’m a big award watcher. These past few weeks, I’ve been trying to watch as many Oscar nominated movies as I can but I still haven’t seen LaLa Land! Even though I’ve heard it’s amazing, I hope it doesn’t sweep up ALL of the awards..

This year, silver, gold, black and white stole the dress show. Some really amazing looks took over the red carpet. I can’t wait for the Oscars to start in just a few minutes and if you haven’t filled out an oscars ballot, it’s not too late to do so! Here are my favorite 2017 looks (I had a lot of faves this year, everyone looked stunning):

And the Oscar Goes To…

Tonight is OSCAR night! If you had a chance to read my Grammy Awards post, then you know I am a big fan of watching award shows and eating treats all at the same time. Tonight, I am sitting back and snacking/cocktailing with a few friends while we watch all of the beautiful red carpet fashion as well as the actual ceremony of course.

I have seen a handful of movies that are nominated but I know I will need to put many more on my must see list after tonight’s show. Take a look at the snacks & bites my friends and I put together for the big night! And of course we are going to have Petee’s Pie for dessert too……..oscars

We sipped on cocktails throughout the night (orange/peach/mango juice with champagne and a drop of St. Germaine) and tallied up our oscar ballot predictions (winner get’s a bottle of champagne)! And voila – how to have a great Oscar’s Night!
