PJs and Pearls Oscars Party for Lauren Conrad

PJs and Pearls Oscars Party for Lauren Conrad

Oscars Party Red Carpet Ideas

For our next project for Lauren Conrad, Lauren thought it would be super fun to do an Oscars Party in which guests wore their PJs with their finest jewelry and Oscar-worthy hairdo! We couldn't have agreed more! What a cute idea! To check it out on Lauren's site directly, click here.

Here's how to throw a “PJs +Pearls” Oscar Party …

Set the scene in your living room!  We wanted to create an old Hollywood look for this party, so we used a blush, black, white, and gold color palette. We decorated with mercury candle votives, birdcages, and a blush lace table runner to really give the party that vintage feel! Our guests were decked out in Victoria’s Secret pajamas and fabulous jewelry from Bunky Boutique! You will gasp when you see the necklaces and earrings below! To get the Oscars look for the party, visit our post with all of the deets!

We carried over our color palette to the dessert table, which we sprinkled with our Oscars Party Printables.

Popcorn Bar

You definitely need popcorn at an Oscars party, so we went one step further and featured a popcorn bar! Have fun and get creative with your toppings! We used some healthier choices of course: rosemary salt, a sweet and spicy mixture, all natural caramel sauce, dark chocolate sauce, olive oil, yogurt covered pretzels, dark chocolate covered cranberries, and organic candied peanuts.

Vintage Gold Leaf Wine Glasses DIY

We grabbed some vintage wine glasses at Goodwill, and gold leafed the stems to give them a fancy feel! My inspiration came from Anthropologie! I saw some glasses there that had been gold-leafed, and I thought to myself “I can do that!” We will be sharing the full tutorial on theblogin the next few days!
