Are You Ready for Some Football?

football-party-mason-jarsIt’s the North against the South. Ok…not really, but the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcolns will be facing off this Sunday to see who takes home the Super Bowl trohpy. I’m indifferent to who wins because my hometown team (the Dallas Cowboys) didn’t make it this year. However, I’m not indifferent, to a good time on Superbowl Sunday!

Golden Globes Party

8-balloon-awardsAwards season kicks off this Sunday with the Golden Globes!

Often a harbinger to the Oscars, it’s definitely one of the more fun evenings in Hollywood. It’s a school night at our house, so we will be watching in our jammies, but it’s a fun  family activity to judge the fashions, predict the winners and laugh at the best one-liners. Even if your carpet isn’t red, you can still add some glam elements to the evening.3-gold-donutsDress up your favorite doughnuts with edible glitter – yes, it’s a thing!honey-popcorn-balls-42 ingredient popcorn balls – recipe herechic-pink-and-gold-golden-globes-party-by-karas-party-ideas-kara-allen-for-tiny-prints-12Bring out the goldoscarsfood_diytortillachipstarsChannel the stars with homemade star tortilla chipsmade-by-girlA little DIY with gold paint transforms plain balloons- instructions hereoscarsfood_goldstarsprinklesStar sprinkles (by Wilton at Party City) dress up any flavor

If you don’t have time to pull things together for this Sunday…you can save these ideas for the SAG, Grammys and Oscars.

As for me, the best part will be Jimmy Fallon! He gets my vote for Best Host.
