Camille Styles here, and I'm thrilled to be kicking off our Fantasy to Fête column for 2011 with some girly glam festivity. Sure, Oscar night gets most of the buzz on the awards show circuit, but doesn't it seem like celebs have even more fun as they wine + dine at the Golden Globes?
Golden Globes Party Inspiration Board-Camille Styles-55
I'm planning to take a cue from Hollywood this year and host my own little Globes-night bash... a glittering table, live broadcast, and champagne on the menu. Our inspiration board is awash in (what else?) glitzy gold, with rosy accents and pops of black. So mark your calendars for January 16th, and invite a few friends for an evening oozing with Hollywood glamour...

Get dressed up and deck out your pad in glam shades of white + silver. Balloons look so chic when grouped en masse. (For this effect, more really is more!) Curl the ribbons for added festivity.

Scout out sparkly remnants from the fabric store to top the table, and use gold flatware for loads of shine. Tuck handwritten place cards in tiny envelopes for a bit of added mystery.

Ballot-Camille Styles
No awards show party is complete without a little healthy competition. Pass around ballots with all the nominees, and let guests make their predictions during the red carpet. Winner gets the trophy...or at least bragging rights!
Now's the time to pull out all the stops and surprise guests with some serious luxury. A note on caviar: basic black is always appropriate, but there are all kinds of interesting flavors from which to choose: gray truffle, green wasabi, crimson beet... all are lovely! Hop on over to Camille Styles to check out the recipes for our Golden Globes menu, including truffled deviled eggs, frisée salad with herbed goat cheese, & blini with caviar.
