Though there was no red carpet, guests were given the paparazzi treatment at my Oscar Gold Party. The party plan required guests to wear their most casual, comfy clothes but to bring the sparkle. I was tickled to see how guests arrived. Please be sure to see that one gal came with gloves and a tiara.

the sparkle…it’s fun when everyone plays along
and then there were awards
we gave awards based on votes for best hair and makeup, best glasses (matt won that vote and went home with a bath and body set), best drama queen, and best accessories. guests were asked to bring a white elephant gift and those were the prizes. the most coveted award for the evening… the golden oscar my husband also scrolled and I spray painted and hung on black ribbon.
and not without their swag bags… filled with a theatre candy, popcorn, chocolates, ‘giants of california’ zinnias, Honeybee Gardens satin sheets mineral eye shadow (my personal fav eye color) and mimosa jojoba lip balm, and Oribe hair product samples (Bell Tower Salon and Spa carries).
