The Fresh Toast in partnership with Piper Heidsieck hosted a glamorous Oscar party at the Coterie Worklounge in Seattle on February 28th.
Seventy-five guests sipped chilled champagne and feasted on appetizers and Chinese food during the evening.
As the Best picture was announced, there was a gasp and a ripple in the crowd as the now well-documented snafu occurred.
Among the 75 guests attending were bold face names Robby London, one of the creators of the cartoon “He-Man,” philanthropist Betty Tong and former Seattle Times and Vulcan CFO Buster Brown.
Also attending was Seattle costume designer Ron Leamon who has designed clothing for films, several television series and commercial productions for over 30 years and dressed celebs James Earl Jones, Dolly Parton, Parker Posey, Kurt Russell, David Lynch and many others.
Piper Heidsieck champagne is a major partner of the Academy Awards, their champagne flows at the ceremony and at swanky LA after parties. They also host a few select viewing parties around the nation. Piper has a tradition of being at the center of celebrations, and The Fresh Toast joined in the tradition while sommeliers, artists, business leaders, fashionistas and media gathered together to celebrate the evening.
