I almost forgot it’s Oscar weekend, which means basically putting my pajamas on earlier, and getting cozy on the couch. Don’t worry though, I’ll be wearing bling, as I’ve painted my nails a sparkly silver in honor of Jennifer’s Lawrence’s nail polish fetish from American Hustle and I’ll throw my big hair up.
Here is a host of sexy appetizers and cocktails to enhance the evening from some of my favorite blogs. I’ve included the easiest, fastest recipe for a healthy addition to decadence. Red Beets for the red carpet with a little golden mango for the lucky winners.
And now a public service announcement from Jennifer Lawrence:
“WHATEVA you do, don’t wrap any of these in foil and put them in the science oven.”

Where will you be on Oscar night? Do you have a favorite movie or star you’re hoping will win. Shake it up with a little red beets and mango salad which by the way can also be served for dessert.
Many thanks for the stuffed olive mention. Ironically our tradition is to go to a friend’s house for Oscars where I’m NEVER assigned the appetizer duty. Its their loss as now I have lots of fun ideas from this post I would have tried out.
A wonderful party food roundup, Angela. I am going to make a salad tomorrow with beet and mango! Looks very tasty!
Love how you served these. Makes me think I need to step up my game tonight.
I wish I was coming over…these sound delicious…a lover of beets and mangoes…a great start…
G’day and what a fun post today, true!
LOVE the beet and mango combo and WISH I had enough girlfriends who could commit to a date for a get together…everyone always seems so busy with their own lives…shame really…and something I miss about when I lived in the States too…as there never would be a question of how many came to a party…
That really was the best line “evah” wasn’t it? I just laughed out loud in the theater when the “science oven” came out of the trunk of the car…brillant moment.
I really do not do anything special for Oscar night…no special food or drink, nor get togethers…just as you do…I get in my jammies early and snuggle in with a light supper and a glass of vino. After I see the outfits I pretty much check out and read about the results the next morning in the Times…exciting life!
Fun post Angela.
Teresa, Your oscar night sounds a lot like mine. I’ll probably fall asleep.
Well every year 8 girlfriends get together for Oscar night and bring appetizers. We have done so many different and wonderful foods over the months and years when we get together, all are foodies. This year I am making a cheese ball coated in pecans filled with ham, green onions and crushed pineapple. And I am making hot and mild sausage balls with 3 dipping sauces, BQ, Red Chili Sauce, and a Greek Cucumber yogurt sauce. I might at the last minute add your beet and mango’s, I have both in house. My sister in law makes the best canned beets from her garden every year and I just am in heaven anytime she gives me a jar thru out the winter. Thanks for all your Oscar tips!
That sounds like so much fun. I’m sure your food is wonderful.
