DIY Celebrity Inspired Summer Parties

     While the hottest celebrities are enjoying wining and dining in St. Tropez with parties on their oversized yachts, they sure make it easy to stir up the little green monster inside all of us! Their wine never seems to stop flowing, and their lavish diamonds only gets larger. Instead of getting stuck resenting parties held on exclusive islands while I'm camped out in my living room, it can still be possible for women to create their own luxurious life for a summer that will be one for the record books!

Celebs don’t give it a second thought when their G650 private jet charter picks them up to spend the night dancing away at one of summers hottest album release parties. It’s just a typical work commitment to brush shoulders with the hottest names in Hollywood, while sipping on $500 dollar bottles of champagne. With much anticipated album releases from Kanye West and The Black Keys, there will be no shortage of hot music populating the airwaves this season.

Real-Life summer: DANCE OFF!
Even if you haven't made a hit record that's climbing the charts, you can still get the neighborhood together for your own speaker bumpin’ bash! On the concert poster inspired invitations, instruct guests to compile into different dance teams for a competition that is fun and entertaining. Encourage teams to dress in costume for their performance. Designate one of your witty friends as emcee for the night to host the event. Have everyone vote at the end for their favorite routine and reward the winners with swag bags that include iTunes gift cards and headphones!

Celebrity summer: ELLE STYLE AWARDS
Versace, Loubiton, Givenchy… oh my! The Elle Style Awards is the night for celebs to dress up in designer clothing and allow the most regal jewelry companies to drape them in diamonds. The stars of “Tinsel town” can enjoy being named "Next Future Icon" or designers as "Contemporary Brand of the Year," while Joan Rivers gives her own spunky commentary of the red carpet hits and misses on "Fashion Police."

For a fun summer event that gives your wardrobe a facelift, invite your closest girlfriends over for mojitos and a chance to exchange their unused or lightly worn clothes and accessories! At a swap party, participants can trade different items of their wardrobe for an item of another guest that they like! No money is involved, but make sure your bargaining skills are on point! After refreshing your wardrobe, you can take silly photographs each other on a faux red carpet afterward with your new items! An affordable and fun get-together for a relaxing afternoon!

Celebrity summer: MASON'S 3RD BIRTHDAY
Kourtney Kardashian had no reservations when celebrating her son Mason's third birthday with an over-the-top Thomas the Train Engine theme, complete with lunch at well-known hotspot, Serendipity. The bash was extremely impressive with a visit to the Gold Coast Railroad Museum and guests that included enough celebrities to make the Golden Globes jealous!

Real-Life summer: DIY "ARTY" PARTY
Let the kiddies run loose and have some summer fun while exploring their creativity! Set up stations for finger paint, play-dough and sidewalk chalk. Use tarps and smocks to keep the backyard clean where necessary, but let kids get messy and wild while they discover their inner Van Gogh! Supplement with colorful snack displays such as a fruit tray and jars of Skittles!

      With a pink Cosmo in hand, my closest gal pals and I have I've decided to plan our own summer soirees for nights where we can live the high life but still have the comfort of home. This summer, in between potty training and play-dates, we can also give ourselves the VIP treatment!
