Printable 2015 Oscar BallotHappy Weekend, Y’all! I’m devoting The Happy List to all things OSCARS this week! After being iced in here in Nashville, TN all week (what I like to call icepocalypse 2015), I’m so looking forward to watching the Oscars this Sunday! I’m going to get out this weekend, grab a few ingredients for my viewing party menu, and fill out my ballot! Let’s take a look at my top Oscar picks from around the web…shall we?

  • Save this chic Printable Oscar Ballot (pictured above) from Kate Spade and print as many as you need!
  • Make your viewing party star-studded with these cinnamon stars!
  • Complete your menu with these Oscar-worthy bites.
  • I love this idea of gold balloons here, inexpensive yet very festive!
  • Speaking of balloons, I love this idea!
  • Cocktail time! Try the “Benedict Cucumberbatch” – ha.
  • I have loved these tuxedo confetti poppers forever!
  • Get colorful and style up a fabulous Oscar Party, love this ribbon wall! (pictured below)
