Golden Globes Viewing Party

I have spent my entire life watching the Golden Globes Awards year after year and for me, the BEST part has got to be the fashion! My friends and I usually get together hours before the actual awards to watch the red carpet arrivals in eager anticipation of who was wearing what. There are always jaw dropping “Wow” moments along with the “What was she thinking?” looks and I just can’t think of a better Sunday afternoon than gathering around the TV with my girlfriends to view the Golden Globes. Well, that was until my favorite chocolate brand Lindt, became the Official Chocolate Confectionery of the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards. Lindt will celebrate this iconic evening with the highest quality, best tasting chocolate.

At this year’s Golden Globe Awards, Lindt will delight guests with a decadent chocolate experience. During the ceremony, attendees will enjoy a limited edition Lindt gift box presented on their place setting. At the Golden Globes lounge, stars will enjoy handcrafted pralines imported from Switzerland and an exquisite chocolate sculpture of the Golden Globe award. Lindt will continue the festivities as the Presenting Sponsor and Official Dessert Sponsor of the Weinstein Company Golden Globes After Party, and sweeten up the celebrations with chocolate from the sophisticated Lindt EXCELLENCE collection. With unrivaled craftsmanship and the world’s finest ingredients, Lindt is the perfect addition to any celebration. Chocolate lovers can have a taste of the excitement this awards season by visiting Lindt.com for tips from a variety of experts to create a memorable at-home viewing experience.

In honor of this delicious and momentous occasion, I’m sharing an easy and elegant idea for hosting your very own Gold Globes viewing party with Lindt ……. A Wine and Chocolate Tasting Party! Please be sure to follow along with my fellow Lindt Blogger Council Members, Two Peas And Their Pod, Pizzazzerie and Sugar & Cloth for brilliant yet effortless ideas for hosting your own Golden Globes Party!

Now…. Let’s get to one of the most important questions of this party…… “What shall we wear?” Since this is a glamorous party at home, I would opt to feel comfortable while still shining and shimmering. I chose this soft, sleek black turtle neck top and paired it with this gorgeous golden, wide leg pant and statement accessories. Since we’re lounging on the sofa and indulging in hors d’oeuvres, wine and chocolates all afternoon and evening long, I want to be able to move around freely without the restriction of a long gown or tight dress. For makeup, I kept things classic and simple with gold shimmer eye shadow, winged eye liner and a peach lip. {A bold red lip would also be fabulous!} This would also be the perfect time to strut your stuff in the tallest, most glamorous heels you own, because we’ll be lounging all day and not on our feet for hours on end!

And now for the treats! A wine and chocolate pairing party is a light yet indulgent treat for your guests to enjoy and I love when we can all try each wine and chocolate combo then describe the tastes and memories they evoke. It’s such a fun, interactive game that your guests will love. For this party, I would serve 4 distinct and exciting Lindt EXCELLENCE chocolate bars such as Sea Salt, 70% Cocoa, Pineapple and Chili to tantalize the palette. Pair each chocolate flavor with the perfect wine such as a rich Cabernet Sauvignon, smooth Pinot Noir, buttery Chardonnay and crisp Pinot Grigio respectively. In addition, I also love serving and decorating with LINDOR truffles. Simply add a bag of truffles to a tall glass vase or bowl and add tea light candles to set a festive mood. Round out this decadent party with fresh organic berries.

If you’re tuning into the Golden Globes on Sunday night, don’t miss the live Lindt Chocolate Twitter Party from 8-9PM EST. We’ll be talking all about how to throw the best at-home awards show parties, as well as some hot topics from the awards themselves (i.e. who really is Best Dressed??) There will be a giveaway too for a chance to win delicious Lindt Chocolate! I hope you are as excited for this year’s award season as much as I am!
