Oscar Party 2014

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]It’s time for the Oscars!!! We are excited for our favorite awards show of the season and it’s the perfect excuse for a party. Most Oscar parties will focus on black, white, gold, and perhaps some touches of red, with an Art Deco vibe. However, we love the unexpected!  

Instead of a black and white throwback to Old Hollywood, choose a color palate that is fun and playful by taking inspiration from confetti. Set the scene with a fun piece of décor such as colorful tissue garland. Adding onto the bright colors, we love the new popcorn dish by powerhouse design duo, Courtney and Robert Novogratz, with its perfect pops of color. Be sure to upgrade that popcorn with one of these fun recipes. Or, spice up the movie theater classic by trying out one of our favorite simple popcorn tricks: add truffle salt for a savory touch or Hot Tamales for a sweetly cinnamon spin.

No Oscar party would be complete without some bubbly, but why not garnish your champagne with rock candy? If you want to take your cocktailing to the next level, we love this fun twist on Jell-O shots.

Don’t forget to print out your 2014 Oscar ballot and while you’re there, check out the great tutorial for a confetti mani to complete your Oscar party hostess look. We can’t wait to see what looks our favorite stars will be rocking and who will take home those prized golden statues!

xoxo

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Things are busy busy busy around the Bliss Studio today as we prepare for two fabulous weddings this Memorial Day weekend!  We hope you all have some fabulous plans on your social agenda- maybe even a weekend long getaway that starts promptly this afternoon!  

While the Chicago weather this weekend is really not living up to our agreement to be gorgeous, sunny and a perfect 80 degrees, we aren't going to let the weather ruin our fun!  Rather than putting back your picnic supplies, why not plan a fabulous indoor picnic?!?!
