Oscar Party Recap!

Well, it’s taken me two whole days to recover from the weekend. I’m thinking that makes it pretty epic, right?  In a weird twist of scheduling, not only did we have the Oscar party happening Sunday, but we also received a fairly last-minute invitation to attend the American Heart Association’s Heart Ball on Saturday night. So it was two fancy dress parties in one weekend. As I was surfing the interwebs the other night, I was exploring Rent the Runway and Simon told me to give it a try and I am oh so glad that I did! And I must say that I do love Simon in a tux. I wish he could wear one every day. ::sigh::

I was exhausted on Sunday, but adrenaline got pumping and the finishing touches were put on the party. It really was a fantastic evening!  I do love a party, and I simply adore the idea of having a fancy dress party, even if it’s only here at home. Because I am the queen of color, it had to be an outside-the-box color scheme with wild color. So all my Oscar statuettes were glittered different colors. I found the template for everyone’s favorite statue at Twig & Thistle and it was so simple to make.

The favors were miniature bottles of OPI polish. Aren’t they so darling?

However, to go with all my mercury glass and mirrored decor on the mantel, I displayed the gold and black glittered Oscar statuettes. I love how these turned out against the candles!

I picked out 2 dresses from Rent the Runway, and as much as I loved this Badgley Mischka, it puckered weirdly on me at the waistline, so I ended up wearing the Halston halter gown two nights in a row. Both were truly fabulous gowns. So the gold sequin number was relegated to Lolita, my mannequin.

Bold color, glitter, and rolls of crepe paper helped create my dessert display in the kitchen. Those colorful clear plastic boxes from Michael’s (only $1.50) also made perfect risers for the mini cupcakes.

Remember that inspiration photo from Martha Stewart with the gold stars? I reinterpreted it in multicolored glitter paper to make the runner on my table in the breakfast nook.

And we couldn’t have a party about the movies without popcorn and the multicolored tutti fruitti popcorn from Oklahoma City’s Popcorn Fharmacy was ridiculously addictive.  I don’t think I got a photo of it, but I displayed them in giant opaque Chinese takeout boxes.

Finally, we had to have a photobooth for something to do in the commercial breaks, and a photobooth was just the trick! I got the most fabulous garland by etsy seller EverlyLane. I think this was my most favorite party decoration and I want to permanently display it in my office. It is that fabulous. And Jess was super accommodating to get it to me super quick.  I really want a dozen of them in every color available.

Speaking of crazy party photos – here’s some of my faves.

Big thanks to all who came and made it a success! Let’s do it again soon!

But not too soon. My house needs a break from all the glitter.
