Oscar Party 2013

It's that time of year again to plan our annual Oscar Party! We are a Movie Group after all! :-) At least that's, how we started. We are much more but to honor our roots we willl get together to watch the Oscars and see what were the best movies of 2012. No doubt much debate and discussion will be had.

Who will be the big winners this year? Les Mis, DJANGO, Skyfall, The Avengers, The Hobbit, Cloud Atlas, Lincoln, Argo, The Hunger Games, The Imposter and so many more? Who will win Best Actor and Best Actress Awards? It's just so exciting!!

We will also be voting on our own picks and there will be prizes and fun. If you love movies, this is an event you must attend.

And this year we will have TWO rooms with TWO large screen HD TV's!! So, if you have some comfy portable chairs, bean bags or floor pillows bring them. We will be scattered all over the house.

Its a potluck! Please bring a casserole, a side dish, a dessert or other yummy things to share with the group. I will have soda for all. If you want adult beverages you are welcome to bring them.

      February 24, 2013

  • Joni

    Does anyone have a small/medium sized crock pot or slow cooker that they could bring tonight? I have a large one that is too big for what I'm bringing and takes up too much space on the counter. I'll bring it unless someone can let me borrow something better. Beth, do you have one? That would be so convenient!

    February 24, 2013

  • Beth

    Hi all! I have changed the start time of the Oscar Party. That first hour was all red carpet arrivals and I don't care who is wearing what designer's gown!! LOL So, come at 7:00 not 6:00. We can eat while the red carpet winds down and be ready for the big moment at 7:30 pm. See you then!!

    I'm feeling nostalgic. This will be my last FBMC party in this house. We have had a lot of good times here! Many games, movies and laughs together. Bring something yummy to share Sunday night. We'll celebrate the Oscars and say goodbye to this FBMC clubhouse. The new one will be bigger and better!!
