Are you getting pumped for Oscar Sunday?! If you’re hosting or attending an Oscar party, here are a few red carpet-worthy appetizers that will earn you the Oscar for most clever host (or best appetizer in a supporting role).
Black Tie Cheese & Crackers
All you need for this easy app is a round cracker, a wedge of your favorite wheel cheese, and a few olives to slice and dice into a bow tie and buttons. Cute, clever, and most importantly simple.
Best-Dressed Hot Dogs
This recipe is all about finding the right napkin to dress your family-friendly treat up to the nines. Find a black napkin with white trim and construct little paper bow ties to wrap around hot dogs or pigs in a blanket for an Oscar-worthy easy app.
This one is very straightforward if you consider yourself to by nifty at dipping chocolate. Melt white and dark chocolate separately and dip fresh strawberries to achieve a black and white tuxedo look. Detail with a toothpick and leave on wax paper in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve these sweet treats.

Despite the fun radiance of Pantone’s 2014 color of the year, radiant orchid, this spring’s hottest color palette is rather reserved. Pale and pretty pastels colored the runways at New York Fashion Week, and there are so many ways to incorporate pastels into your spring and summer wardrobe!
1. Versatile Pastel Pieces
As you can see from this Burberry Prorsum runway pastels collection, there are many versatile clothing pieces that allow you to incorporate the pastel palette into your everyday attire without looking over-the-top.
2. Pastel Polish
Perhaps the easiest way to get on board with spring’s pastel trend is with pretty pastel nail polish. Essie has a number of different pastel collections, including their 2014 Resort Collection, which features a few new pastel hues!
3. Pastel gemstones
Mix and match your pastels with a sparkly addition to your springy outfit, like a pastel CZ bubble ring! Or go for a solid pastel tone to color block against your outfit and other accessories.
There are so many pretty pastels to choose from, they shouldn’t all be reserved for Easter!
