Oscar Recap

Our second trip to the Oscars was very successful! Kathy and Steve had a blast! We wanted to share some of the back story with you as well as some photos of the awesome people Kathy and Steve met.

Confetti Sweets provided cookies for the celebrity goodie bags at the 2014 CCMA Awards in Edmonton and they created such a sensation that they were asked to bring their...
