Oscars Ballot – 2019

Here at Jollity & Co. we live for a good party! And while we haven’t managed to snag an invite yet, we can image that The Oscars is one hell of a good time, so we always throw a little viewing party. Our champagne may not be Dom, but you can bet our slippers are wayyy more comfortable than those 6 inch heels everyone is wearing.

One of our favorite parts of the night is seeing who was able to guess the most categories correctly! This year we want to have all of our babe friends in on the fun, so we put together this fun printable ballot for you to use at your own Oscars viewing party. Who are you hoping wins best picture? Our team is split between A Star is Born + Bohemian Rhapsody. Be sure to click below and snag your own ballot!

Want a BIG idea for showing love at your Galentine’s Party? It’s almost our favorite holiday (okay, yes, every holiday is our favorite) so that means we get to break out our biggest ideas! And, who doesn’t want a GIANT love letter? Or better yet, a wall full of them? You have to admit that this would be the most perfect photo booth backdrop.

You can create an enormous card for each of your friends to open at your Galentine’s celebration! Add in your favorite inside joke, remind your bestie that she’s killing it at her new job, instill how much you love your girl’s new haircut, etc…

For these envelopes we were able to dust off our skills from last year’s Balloonagram. Head over to that post for a step-by-step on how to assemble the perfect vessel to let someone know just how epically sized your love is for them!

And be sure to keep a watch on our Instagram for more photos from this shoot and the other fun Valentine’s Day ideas that we have up our sleeves!
