How to Host the Ultimate Logies Viewing Party

Katie Fowler

The dreaded Sunday night scariesthere’s nothing worse than the sun going down after a great weekend and realising...oh no, tomorrow is Monday. That said, there'll be something different about this Sunday. Why? It’s TV's night of nights, the TV WEEK Logie Awards, and we think there's no better way to brighten up your night than by gathering up your clique for a viewing party. What could be better than watching the red carpet beauties roll in and trying to guess which show-stopping gown Jesinta Campbell will wear? (We’re still swooning over last year's Camilla and Marc green gown.) This year, there'll be performances by James Blunt and nominee, Jessica Mauboy, to impress you, and we predict Selling Homes Australia will take home the statue for Best Lifestyle Program.

To get you started, the team at My Domaine Australia has pulled together all the elements of our dream Logies viewing party for inspiration. Read on for all the ingredients this Sunday night.

White and Red Wine

Hungerford Hill 2016 Classic Hunter Valley Fiano ($27)

Ripe with mandarin, floral and fresh herbal aromas, this drop has a textured palate with lots of citrus fruit and gentle tannins. In other words, drink up.

Hungerford Hill 2014 Epic Mclaren Vale Shiraz ($120)

This tipple is deep red and smells like chocolate, earthy spice and blood plums. (It tastes as good as it sounds.) The palate is smooth and creamy—perfect paired with the frozen fruit and nut board below.

Slice the watermelon and pineapple and place into the freezer until frozen. (I put mine in an airtight container and separate the layers with baking paper.)
