And the nominees are…(please vote!)

I have a bunch of other awards to hand out from my Blogoversary Party Party (stay tuned), but I need your help with the big “Party in a Package” Prize. For this award, I was looking for the parties that took a theme and went with it, used ideas I haven’t seen or thought of before, and made me want to host a party just to copy those ideas. And the nominees are….

Polka Dots–by Dukes and Duchesses. The Twister tablecloth and Dippin’ Dots ice cream are clever, but I am in love with the party chains made from those button candies.

Academy Awards by Joanne–So many fun details here, like the walk of fame with guests names:

but I am really gaga over the chocolate Oscars. Just look at this presentation!

Airplane party by Michelle–I LOVE the invitations!

And Look at the runway table! I didn’t realize that she had actually lit up the runway at first glance. Isn’t that cool!

Prehistoric but not Extinct Party by Brooke–Funny Fun and stylish party for someone who is over the hill. Just look at what you can do with some faux fur!

Movie Night Series by Donna–So this isn’t just one party, but a whole series of them. Each summer Donna hosts movie nights in her back yard, on her large projector. For each movie, she picks coordinating food and table spread. Like these:

Indiana Jones

& Mary Poppins

Don’t you want to be her neighbor? Anyone have a projector and screen they want to give me, so I can copy?

I thought I had a winner, but keep changing my mind. Help me pick our grand winner by voting in the poll on the side! And thanks to everyone for making it a great party!
