In February Oasis went to the Oscars!
Just like the real event, no expense was spared! Serena a stalwart of our group provided the red carpet. After searching the internet, she found the perfect solution, the picture gave the effect of a quality product at a discount bargain price (£5 including p&p).
Beccie carefully laid the carpet roll, which had the complete reverse of the product image displayed, the thinnest red crepe tissues paper that every existed!
Vicky and Ann had planned a traditional American style meal to get our ladies into the mood for the parade and the chance of winning a Oscar for the best dressed outfit.
Many of our ladies plan their outfits around the different events we run at Oasis, and this evening was no exception. Serena came as Marilyn Monroe, but not a fan in sight! Beccie as the Lady in Red and Carole in an black and white outfit and elegant red cape. Rosie and Joanna in simple blue diaphanous dresses and Jenny wore a beautiful white fur coat – must have cost a fortune!
Geri tried to curry favour with an elegant black number and a walking stick. She was clearly going for the disability vote. Claire was in a very sexy leather zipped dress and hat fascinator. Kay wore an all black dress representing the #MeToo movement. Rachel, as ever went for simplicity with immaculate matching separates, so elegant!
Vicky chose a sparkly little black dress with matching gold jewellery. Finally Viki, new to Oasis, came in a strikingly elegant dress with diagonal stripes.
With so many Oscar nominations the judging was going to be difficult, although clearly no one had a chance with Beccie being there, although it’s so important to give others an opportunity!
All the ladies “walked the walk” on the red carpet and with all the votes counted the gold envelopes were opened.
The first award went to the “Chef of the Stars”, Vicky, for all the work she had done over the many years she has supported Oasis. She was overcome with emotion, and I’m told it now takes pride and place with all the other family photos on the walnut sideboard in her living room.
Next came the “Most outstanding dress” award. Viki, our new lady took the first place with Rosie as runner up both receiving vouchers and Oscars. Well done to Claire for gained 3rd place.
Beccie despite wearing an outfit to compliment the carpet felt like the carpet……rejected… ripped…dirty..well there’s no change there!!
