Oscar Party Buffet Table

February 19, 2015 No Comments

When I throw a party, I quickly move from “I’m having a party” to “I need to plan the food”.  Planning the food for me isn’t just the food.  It’s what it will be served on and how I will scape the table.  I thought maybe some of you are like me.  So, table has to come before ballots and favors for our Oscar parties.

One of my favorite things to serve is also a favorite of mine to eat.  It makes a nice presentation, is easy to prepare and I can pretend it is somewhat healthy — after all, there’s fruit in it.  Everybody seems to love brie and I make what I call a jeweled brie.

Recipe:

  • 1 wheel of brie
  • dried apricots, chopped
  • dried cranberries
  • pecans, roughly chopped
  • honey

Mix together enough dried fruit and nuts to form a heaping mound that covers the top of the wheel (everyone will want some of this delicious mixture with their brie).  If you have enough that it falls off the sides, that’s good too.  Now, add just enough honey to bind the fruit and nut mixture.  It should not be runny.  Mound on top of your brie and sprinkle a few bits on the plate and it’s ready to serve at room temperature.

Once you’ve got your brie plated, you still need a tag to let your guests know what you’re serving.

I repurposed one of my creations from this last Sunday — I told you I loved it– and designed it for my Oscar party.

Oscar Party Buffet Label from theartfulinker.com

I continued with the Silver Glimmer Paper and Star theme from yesterday’s invitation.

I had some straws on hand from the dollar store.  I cut one just short of half and coated it with Crystal Effects.  Then I sprinkled on Silver Glitter and set it aside to dry on my Silicone Craft Mat – this assured that it would not be stuck to anything once dry.

The stamped image is from Bright and Beautiful.  Both stars were cut with the Stars Framelits. Then for my label, I used one of the Apothecary Accents Framelits to cut my Basic Black cardstock.  After writing on the label with my Chalk Marker, I accented it with Silver Glimmer Paper tassels/streamers cut with one of the Balloon Framelits.

Check back tomorrow for Oscar party favors.
