Governors Ball - Roses, Roses, Roses

With the Academy Awards Presentation on Sunday, Hollywood is busy preparing for the all the parties.  One of the biggest parties following the Oscar Ceremony is the Governors Ball.  This year, the color theme is red with gold accents as a tribute to the Oscars' 80th anniversary: think red carpet, gold statues.  Some 15,000 roses will be used in the arrangements!  James Storie orchids will add the splash of gold to compliment the red.  The overall look is stunning!

YumSugar was lucky enough to check out the preview of the event and posted some wonderful pictures of the flower arrangements.  Click here for more details and more pictures.   At the end of YumSugar's post, you can watch a short video clip from the "flower guy" Mark Held of Mark's Garden.  Here is a preview:

On another note - Pink Martini, a 12-member pop orchestra group from Portland, Oregon, will headline the entertainment at the Ball.  I saw them in concert last year and really enjoyed their fun, eclectic, and worldly music.  The lead singer sings beautifully in at least 4 different languages. 

Enjoy the Oscars!
