oscars 2012 countdown: party decor inspired by the help

Yesterday I shared some party decor ideas to give your home a chic look to reflect the glitz and glam of the Oscars. But to truly reflect this year's Academy Awards, why not pull inspiration from the 2012 nominees? [caption id="attachment_11527" align="aligncenter" width="400" caption="via Wikipedia"] [/caption] Today is all about southern comfort with ideas inspired by one of the Best Picture nominees The Help. It only takes a few decor accessories to transform your space into a Mississippi home straight out of the 1960s.
