The Hostess with the Mostess...

Are you the hostess with the mostess this Oscar night? We are all abuzz with the giltz & glamour surrounding tonight's event and we'll take just about any excuse to get the girls together for a night of home made apps, champagne cocktails, and giggling around the TV rating the red carpet dresses.

Just to celebrate, we've rounded up some of our favorite ideas for creating a super Swell {yet totally simple} Oscar night of your own & some easy but elegant appetizers.  Get inspired by the beauty and glamor and grab some Swell Caroline all your own {oh, and go Bananas, totally R. Zoe worthy}!

Setting the Scene: 
  • Bow Tie Cupcake Toppers: These would be simple to DIY using cardstock paper & toothpicks. Make cupcakes in the flavor of your choice, and then add this topper to give it the red carpet treatment!
  • DIY Tinsel Stirrers: How festive are these gold tinsel stirrers from the Glitter Guide's Oscar Party?
  • Striped Chair Ties: Give chairs instant Oscar glam using striped fabric & tinsel to tie bows around the chairs. Using fabric is in  because it can be reused for other events.
Oscar Worthy Jewels:
  • Marari Necklace: Affordable luxury, this stunning bib necklace will turn heads and make you feel like you're the move star!
  • Forget Me Knot Earrings: These black stunners are sure to cause a scene; pair with a chic chignon updo & red lipstick.
  • St. Barth Necklace: This genuine Turquoise and silver statement piece would fit right in on the red carpet and will do double duty for your next beach sojourn!
