    Of course, what Oscar Party would be compete without yummy food. You can get as fancy or keep it as simple as your like. A great site to visit with some award-winning favorites is Delish.com. The one I thought looked absolutely scrumptious were the Mini- Black Bottom Cheesecakes -- yummy!!! Oh, and don't forget the popcorn...

     

    3. Roll out the Red Carpet

     

    You don't have to have carpet (and no one actually has to walk on it) but using some red butcher paper or getting some red fabric to lay out can work just fine. Of course, you can always order a red carpet but you don't have time for that this year. However, if you want to get a head start on next year's Oscar party, you'll have plenty of time!

  • Gifts Fit for a Princess ~ Kate is Turning 30!

    Happy Birthday Princess Kate!!! Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge is turning 30 and we think that she is a true Charming Chick. She is beautiful, sweet and is quickly becoming a style icon.  Reports say that she has decided to forgo a lavish and loud birthday party and instead has opted for a quiet celebration. One of the things we long about the Duchess is how conservative she and her husband Prince William are -- so much so that they decided not to have servants. How very common. We love it! She has also been spotted grocery shopping among the common folks and has bought clothing off the rack. The best thing about Kate is that she seems to be a really down to Earth royal.

     

    At Charming Chick we carry many items that any frugally minded, fashionable princess would love. Today we will feature some of our most popular princess items in honor of Kate's  30th birthday.

     

     

     

    What does every princess need? Princess cut earrings of course! These gorgeous princess cut CZ earrings are set in beautiful .925 sterling silver. They are perfect for everyday wear and look just as stunning with formal evening wear -- and a tiara! If your princess is having a birthday these would make an excellent gift.

     

     

     

    This is a necklace fit for royalty but at a price anyone can afford. It is set in stunning sterling silver and features an exquisite five-point crown with dazzling CZs. Another notable feature is the toggle clasp. It adds a unique element to this already special piece.  The crown measures 3/4" and the necklace is 18" long which is a great complement to almost any neckline. This piece usually ships in about 3-5 days so you'll want to give yourself plenty of time before ordering.

     

     

     

    If you buy the necklace above you will definitely want to add these gorgeous matching earrings to complete the look. Treat yourself or someone you love. This set is completely versatile and looks just as great with a pair of jeans as it does with an evening gown. As with the necklace, these earrings are set in precious sterling silver and when the light hits the CZs the sparkle is sure to catch everyone's eye. They look like a million bucks but are very affordable.
