Get Oscars Party Ready With the RHS!!

Hollywood's biggest night is just a few days away! On Sunday, February 26th, the film industry's finest will be gracing the red carpet of the Kodak Theatre in the hopes of taking home their prestigious Oscar statuette and the esteemed title of "Academy Award Winner." And how exciting is it to think that in just a few months, RHS Members will be standing exactly where these stars stood as we celebrate RHS Day 2012.

Just like celebrities, we all have have our own personal favorites who we are leaning towards, and we will certainly be tuning in to see who triumphs. Because this year's RHS theme: the "Stars Among Us" fits so perfectly with this exciting night, we wanted to give you some ideas for putting a little RHS sparkle in your star-studded Oscars parties.

First, we have taken the official Oscars nominee ballot for 2012 and spruced it up in true RHS style so you can print it from our website, and pass it out to your guests. You could also turn this into a really fun game and have your guests try guess who will win before the awards start. The person with the most correct answers at the end of the night could get a fun little giveaway.

The 2012 Oscars Party Ballot is located under the "Fun Stuff" tab of the RHS website, and is a benefit for RHS Members.

Next, we have a DELICIOUS treat for you: "Star-Studded Popcorn!" Because what goes better with movies than popcorn?! (Yes, those are edible gold stars! How fun is that?)

What you will need:
-One Bag of Microwaveable Popcorn
-Edible Star Glitter
-Microwaveable Candy Melts.
-One microwave-safe bowl large enough to coat the popcorn in the melted candy.

First, follow the heating instructions for the popcorn. Next, heat the candy melts in the microwave stirring occasionally until they are thoroughly melted. Pour the popcorn in a bowl and cover with the melted candy. Mix the ingredients until the popcorn has a nice light candy coating, and sprinkle with edible star confetti. This sweet treat is so easy and tasty, and it's sure to be a crowd-pleaser!
