For the country music industry and country fans, "The CMA Awards" are as big as it gets — a night to celebrate some of the greatest accomplishments in music, watch epic performances and maybe sip a cocktail or two with your friends.
One of my greatest CMA Awards memories was watching my husband and his band, Lady Antebellum, win for "Single Of The Year" with their hit "I Run To You" — this song is one of my favorites they have ever recorded, but that moment was also special because we were newlyweds and this was the first award I got to witness him receiving while sitting by his side. I'll never forget that moment — also, I was brunette! This year happens to be the 50th anniversary of country music's biggest night and the show is going to be memorable, fun, filled with amazing once-in-a-lifetime collaborations.
The best part about the show is that while the hottest stars in country music heat up the stage, you can cozy-up with some cocktails, your besties, and your favorite pajamas to host a viewing party of your own! We teamed up with Cost Plus World Market to create a fun soirée fit for a fabulous country music fan. Or, if you are just tuning in to see the gorgeous gowns that Carrie Underwood wears, we got ya.
Since fabulous sips are the key to hosting a successful party, make sure your bar cart is stocked accordingly! Cost Plus World Market not only has on-trend and affordable home décor, but their selection of cocktail mixes and snacks are party-perfect. We are obsessed with this organic margarita mix, and the "ginger bee" is like tasting the spiciness of fall on a crisp autumn night in a glass. A variety of glassware is also essential to any party-ready bar cart so that your guests have options, but also for a splash of pretty décor.
Keep your snacks simplified with an easy-access buffet table that also hosts a non-alcolholic beverage option served up in these cute cowboy boot glasses. Pair classic white dishware with this gorgeous gold mirror cutlery and stack with linen napkins for softness. Layer your buffet table with a jute runner for easy clean up. It's also a great idea to add a thoughtful decor detail — I placed a few of my husband's CMA awards on the table and bar cart since they are special and pretty, but you can add a cool curio or florals for a pop.
Invite some of your best girlfriends over to make this cozy-chic party a night to remember and watch “The 50th Annual CMA Awards” Wednesday, Nov. 2 at 8/7c on ABC.
