How To Plan For A Fun Oscars Party in 6 Steps

The 89th Academy Awards will be held on Sunday, February 26, at the Dolby Theatre® at Hollywood & Highland Center® in Hollywood, and will be televised live by the ABC Television Network at 7:00 p.m. EST/4:00 p.m. PST. The show will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. So what better way to watch the show than with your friends. Why not throw a viewing party. Here are some quick tips to get you started.

1. Invite your friends.
The more the merrier. Give them the star treatment by setting up a "red carpet" and taking tons of photos. Don't forget the swag bags!

2. Dress to Impress.
Have your friends dressed in their best attire, ball gowns are encouraged, but not necessary. I'll be wearing this cute blouse from Who What Wear to keep with the gold theme. 

3. Decorate!
Golden is key! I got a ton of gold colored decorations from Target. Use balloons, plates, streamers, etc to get Oscar ready. You can even find cute Oscar statues and Hollywood themed decoration at your local party store. Amazon also has you covered with gold party supply bundles!

MommyCon is Coming to Chicago Plus Ticket Giveaway!

Two of the natural parenting industry’s most turned-to and respected resources converge to create the world’s largest parenting event in Chicago. MommyCon, a nationwide natural parenting convention series, and WEAR: A Babywearing Conference, combine their unique programs at Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont on March 3 – 5, 2017.

“Natural parenting communities are growing larger each year,” says Xza Higgins, MommyCon founder and Program Director. “We wanted to make sure these growing communities had access to the highest quality resources, education, and experts right here in Chicago. Never before has such a richly diverse program been offered to families under one roof.”

The 3-day convention builds on MommyCon’s mission to create a community and resource for anyone interested in natural and organic parenting. The multi-conference comprises of more than 3 dozen educational seminars and workshops, and 30,000 square feet of exhibition space featuring the latest parenting products and fashions. For further information visit www.mommycon.com

I attended this conference last year and it was great to see so many brands come together under one roof. I also loved the break out sessions where I learned so much, from sleep training my infant, to breastfeeding, and of course baby wearing. Plus there's a goody bag and end of the day giveaways!
