Oscar’s Viewing Snacks – Under $25

The Oscars are approaching, and for those of you that look forward to this night for its glitz and glam appeal, we’re sharing an Oscar’s appropriate spread worthy of any A-list celebrity!

An Oscar Worthy Spread – For Under $25!!

Ever since I can remember, it’s been somewhat of a family tradition to watch the Oscars whilst devouring a delicious spread of various appetizers…. Although I think we’re calling it “tappas” nowadays, no? Anywho, this has always been one of my favourite magical nights of the year and the experience is always amplified by what’s being served on the table. Shrimp rings, cheese and crackers, sliced sausage (I’m getting hungry just writing this)… the options are endless… but pricy! All of these gourmet snacks can definitely add up!!

However, it’s easier than you think to whip up a seemingly gourmet spread that’s simultaneously worthy of any A-list Star, AND completely budget-friendly!! So whether you’re watching the Oscars with a few friends or family, or just hosting a casual night in with the girls, I’m sharing how easy it can be to indulge on some fabulous fare for under $25! ** prices are all approximate values!
