Oscar Party 2014

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!

The Bliss Studio

While there were plenty of sneak peeks of our new studio space in the photos from our Kiki Party, we thought it would be fun to share some proper photos of the space when it isn’t in party mode!

After a long search for the perfect space, we finally found this gem right around the corner from some of the best restaurants and shopping in Wicker Park/Bucktown.  With a little inspiration, a few coats of paint and tearing down a couple walls this space started transforming into the Bliss Weddings & Events Studio back in early December.

Renny scoured our favorite antique stores, Jayson Home & Garden, and One Kings Lane to find the perfect furniture and accessories to compliment the color story of navy, white, kelly green, fuchsia pink, and metallic gold.

Our favorite parts of the studio include the fabulous silver and kelly green metallic palm leaf wallpaper in the powder room, the comfy chic seating area and of course- the bar cart set against fabulous metallic snakeskin wallpaper!!

Thank you to Studio ThisIs for the great pics!
