Inside The Fresh Toast Seattle Oscar Party

Take a look inside the Fresh Toast Oscar Party. The evening was in partenrship with Piper Heidsieck and together hosted a glamorous Oscar party in downtown Seattle on February 28th.  Seventy-five well heeled 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 was Carie Fowler Antonelli, noted horsewoman and a board leader of Mary’s Place.

Global leader Piper-Heidsieck is a Champagne house founded by Florens-Louis Heidsieck in July 1785 in Reims, France. Heidsieck joined with Piper in October 1839. In the late 1980s, Piper-Heidsieck became part of the Rémy Cointreau wine and spirits group. It was sold in 2011 to Européenne de Participation Industrielle, a privately owned holding company of French luxury brands. Marilyn Monroe was one of the House’s earliest supporters, rumoured to have kept a month’s supply of champagne in her kitchen.[4]

Also attending was the Seattle costume designer  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.

The Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars, are awards for artistic and technical merit for the film industry. They are presented annually by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences(AMPAS), in recognition of excellence in cinematic achievements as assessed by the Academy’s voting membership. They are considered the most prestigious, significant awards in the entertainment industry in the United States and worldwide.

The major award categories are presented during a live televised Hollywood ceremony that is typically held in February or March. It is the oldest worldwide entertainment awards ceremony. The 1st Academy Awards were held in 1929, the second ceremony in 1930 was the first one broadcast by radio, and the 1953 ceremony was the first one televised.
