Not many out there would disagree that toasting champagne with a group of your best ladies makes for an amazing night no matter the reason. But the Academy Awards are right around the corner, and what is a better reason than that?
So get ready to slip on those slinky red stilettos, grab a bottle of bubbly and some good company with this inspired 'Champagne and Pearls' vintage chic Oscars party.
A successful party begins with the invitation. When a guest receives an invitation, it sets the stage for the rest of the event: so have fun with it and get creative. Custom order invitations from a local specialty paper shop, or show your artsy side and DIY. Simple and chic doesn't need to be expensive.
Greet your guests with on-theme decor. From centerpieces to silverware, create a theme, a mood, an ambiance, and carry it throughout the event. We love the way Lola Floral incorporated old film reels into this eye-catching centerpiece. With one statement piece and smaller pieces scattered throughout, your decor can leave guests in awe without breaking the bank.
Show off your accents. Well-placed accent pieces add more than overwhelming amounts of kitschy decor [Enough with the fake red carpets, please]. Simply elegant pearl napkin rings from Vintage Ambiance bring this 'Champagne & Pearls' party to life.
It's all in the details. These vintage glasses for serving cocktails add another level of elegance and charm. And never compromise the integrity of an impeccable cocktail with crushed ice. These crystal clear ice spheres will chill your cocktail without diluting the spirits [plus, they look divine].
Fare Fit for the Stars. Bring it all together with food, beverage and presentation straight out of Gatsby.
Reinvented Champagne & Strawberries dazzles here with sweet strawberries in a Champagne coup topped with heavenly Champagne sorbet and fresh mint.
Best Hostess in a Leading Role. As we approach the much anticipated 86th Academy Awards this weekend, be sure to pop that champagne in the fridge and pull out all the stops in designing an enchantingly chic soiree. The Academy [and your guests] are sure to be impressed.
