By Author Prestige - 0 comments
Are you staying up for the most glamorous night of the year?
The excitement, glitz and glamour of the 88th Academy Awards are just around the corner. As always, Oscars night promises to be filled with dazzling star quality and is not to be missed. Whether you’re a fashionista who likes to keep up to the minute with red carpet trends, or a film buff keen to see your favourite flicks get the recognition they deserve, here at Prestige we recommend the following essential survival kit for the perfect night in with the Oscars.
FriendsNumber one on our list of Oscars night essentials is a good crowd. Gather together your favourite people, and either dig out one of your favourite dinner party family recipes or try knocking up some of our party nibbles for a more relaxed party feel.
Try to re-enact Ellen deGeneres’ famous 2014 Oscars selfie by investing in some cool and fun party props, and add a competitive element to the evening by asking everyone to write down their picks for the ‘Big Five’ awards (Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, Best Picture and Best Screenplay) at the beginning of the party.
Staying awakeHeld in LA, which is eight hours behind GMT, the ceremony can often drift into the very early hours of the morning – bad news for those who have to be at the office for 8am on Monday morning! If your guests haven’t planned ahead and booked the day off work, you could record the ceremony in its entirety and host your evening at a more sociable time, but if you’re planning on staying up and doing an all-nighter, you might want to invest in some good quality coffee, made by Prestige’s fantastic selection of coffee machines.
Power through; and just think how good you’ll feel when you’re watching Leo’s acceptance speech.
SnacksFinally, no movie night would be complete without delicious homemade popcorn to munch on while you watch the brightest and best from Hollywood celebrate their success. Impress your party with the perfect A-list snack, made with our quick and convenient Prestige Popcorn Maker. Ready in 3 minutes, and with no fat required, it couldn’t be easier to serve up this speedy and convenient film night treat – just add a sprinkle of salt, or syrup, or whip up a batch of both if you prefer!
