Oscars and Scones: Tudor House

I think I lied on the last post when I said that February is a bore. February is indeed an exciting month. How could have forgotten that the Academy Awards is on tonight (an entertainment equivalent of Super Bowl for ladies)? I will be popping open a bottle of wine and watching the show from beginning to an end, as well as the pre-shows.

Although I’m not much of a movie buff anymore (when did it become so expensive to go to the movies?), I loved some of the flicks that are nominated for the awards this year – The King’s Speech, Black Swan, and Toy Story 3 in particular. My bets are on Colin Firth and Natalie Portman for Best Actor and Actress Awards respectively, with The King’s Speech taking the Best Picture prize. We’ll see how close I was tomorrow.

In the meantime, in honor of cheering for the gorgeous Brit, Colin Firth, I share with you pictures I took at Tudor House in Santa Monica yesterday afternoon. It was a baby shower for friend Y who is expecting a second baby in a few weeks. What a great place to have a shower (baby or bridal), with delicious English teas, tiny tea sandwiches, buttery scones, and all things lovely about England.  Ta ta!
