Hi guys!!!! Did you watch the Oscars last Sunday night? It has been a tradition that I have hosted an Oscar viewing party for some of my favorite girlfriends at my house for over ten years. With the help of my amazing girlfriends, Rita Miles of Detailed Designs by Rita (follow@ritabmiles), and Laurel Weissman of Licious by Laurel, we took it up a notch this year. They, along with help of many of my girlfriends made this party an event to remember.
The theme this year was to wear something sparkly, and my girlfriends looked amazing. Rita went all out on the most unbelievable decor (with the help of Lisa Kay Designs). There were vintage movie reels, gold and black color theme, a red carpet entrance and photo wall, beautifully presented food (with the help of my friend Nikki) and Champagne galore. It was a classy environment for such an upscale evening.
We also had an extraordinary desert table created by Laurel. She baked the most incredible desserts including her signature cupcakes, popcorn and candy bar. And once again, no detail was left un noticed. What a beautiful display.
Rita then provided a swag bar where all the ladies filled bags with beauty and yummy goodies (including treats from Benefit, Moroccan Oil, and Maw ‘N Paw Kettle Corn ). The ladies loved this special added touch.
While we were watching the show, all the ladies took part in our annual Oscar contests. We filled out ballots on our predictions for best picture, actor, actress, etc. In addition, we voted on who of our guests had the best overall glam, best hair, jazziest jewels, sassiest shoes and most glamorous manicure. This year we were fortunate enough to have many donations of beautiful gifts for the winners of the contests. These donors included the following:
Rita Miles, (@ritabmiles) Stylist and Owner, Salon 359– (949) 760-8359
The Vault, Laguna Beach– (949) 376-5000
Kim Putnam, Makeup Artist, Salon 359–(949) 760-8359
I can’t thank you enough for all your donations. It meant so much to me!!!! We will be revealing the winners on my Instagram in the next few days. So stay tuned.
This was the best Oscar party ever! I had the a wonderful time with all of these lovely ladies!! I’m so grateful to have these beautiful women in my life. Thanks again to Rita and Laurel.
