Oscar Night Party Ideas
It's not too late to make this Sunday's Oscars night, absolutely epic - it's the 90th Oscars so if you were going to make an effort, this one is probably it.
Just by setting the scene for the big night you'll see how much more fun you'll have, and that's where West Pack stores comes in to help.
But first, popcorn?
What's the moves without popcorn, right? There's nothing cheaper, or more fun, than serving popcorn in the true spirit of Oscar night! If you're having guests over, or even just for yourself, make a statement with a DIY popcorn bar and serve different flavours of popcorn.
Our favourites include a sweet and savory mix, with a few recipe ideas below. Serve them in old-school brown paper packets (R23.90 for 50 Brown Paper Packets S08) and stock up on popcorn sprinkles from your nearest West Pack store - including flavours such as sour cream and chives, fruit and chutney, butter and cheese (available in 150g packets for R14.90 each).
Recipe: Combine a pinch each salt, pepper, ground cumin, garlic powder, dried basil, dried thyme, paprika and cayenne pepper, and add to melted butter. Place air-popped corn in large bowl and toss in seasoning mixture to coat
Recipe: Combine equal quantities grated Parmesan cheese and melted butter with a dash each of Italian herbs and salt. Pour over warm air-popped corn and toss to coat.
Recipe: Place 8 cups (2lt) air-popped corn in a baking pan. In a small bowl, mix 1 lightly beaten egg white, ½ cup (125ml) sugar, 1 tsp (5ml) cinnamon and pinch of salt. Add to popcorn and bake in preheated 150°C oven, 20 minutes. Cool and break into clusters before serving.
