Hope you all had a fantastic (potentially long) weekend!
Mine was busy, busy, busy- throwing a baby shower, catching up with friends, eating delicious french food, and finally getting this post together… Because yowza! It’s T-minus 5 days until the Oscars you guys!
And I’m dead serious about the Oscars.
And totally unapologetic for my love of glitter too.
So even though I still don’t know who played in the Superbowl (really), and I haven’t had time to figure out the drama between Fumble + Aberdeen (Puppybowl!), I did have time to dream up my perfect Oscar Party Scenario, cover a bunch of shit in glitter, and have the fabulous Heidi Ryder capture it for you all to enjoy! All while sipping cocktails with friends.
It was awesome. And I’m excited to do it all again this weekend for reals!
Enough chatter though, let me give you the glitter:
This little 1960′s inspired sparkle-fest was tons of fun to put together, and I’m so glad my friends + family indulged me in dressing up and drinking so early in the afternoon!
AND I hope you’re able to glean lots of simple + sparkly inspiration for your own party!
My advice is to keep it simple with a champagne cocktail (champagne + a dash of lavender bitters here), bright florals, and fun ballots. Hammy friends in cocktail attire are appreciated, but not required! And for nibbles, don’t kill yourself. Who doesn’t love cheese + chocolate?
If you’ve enjoyed this first installment of the glittersparklemagic that Oscar party dreams are made of, make sure you check back later for more fun and a few awesome free downloads!
Including those amazing glitter bomb ballots by Lupa & Pepi! Swoon.
As for me, I’m floating along in a super sparkly glitter bubble this week.
Seriously. Even my dogs are covered in glitter you guys.
So I’ll see you later for some freebies, mkay?
Also, we need to talk Michelle Williams.
Did you see My Week With Marilyn?
