Oscars 2018: The Flowers

Posted by Suzie Canale on Mon, Mar 05, 2018

If you are a movie goer, I bet you were like me and millions of other people who tuned in to watch the 2018 Academy Awards.  The annual ceremony aired across the country, gifting the little gold man to a multitude of different talented actors including some newer faces we haven’t seen before. You could tell by the extra special glam producers made sure to highlight both on and behind stage that this was show they wanted audiences to remember.  Set décor sparkled, evening gowns glittered and the guest of honor himself (Mr. Oscar Statue) gleamed with perfection in the glow of the lights.  Yes, the details were impeccable from floor to ceiling and that does not exclude the flower arrangements from being part of that list.

Mark Held, owner of Mark’s Gardens of sunny California is the go-to guy for Oscar worthy blooms that are year after year displayed majestically at the event.  Never to disappoint his clients, Mark consistently designs floral pieces that are in precise harmony with the prestigious event, which continue to blow guests away with their undeniable beauty.  His vast knowledge and experience within floral design allows him to create unique blooming creations that become part of the set themselves. For example, it’s not surprising when guests are frequently interviewed in front of his arrangements and floral props as well as the perfect place to pose for pictures and web videos.  After taking a peek at Oscar 2018’s featured bouquets and centerpieces, there is no denying that Mark Held remains reigning master florist who can be considered a “starlet” in his own right.

As many of you who sat in front of their TVs on Sunday know, The 73rd Golden Globe Awards were telecasted at 8:00pm with Jimmy Fallon hosting the event.  There was a lot of news that generated early in the evening such as celebrity wardrobe, top picks for wins and of course, Meryl Streep’s unforgettable speech about changing the world.  It was the typical Hollywood glitz and glamour you’d expect accept this year’s real head turner weren’t the ones walking the red carpet.  No, the real show stopper were the insanely stunning arrangements that graced each table throughout the room and I’m not talking about Carrie Underwood’s interesting pink rose appliqué gown.  Audiences were supposed to be held captured by the anticipation of who would win the next shining gold trophy but in all honesty, the floral designing was what made the night complete.

Mark Helms, owner of Mark’s Garden, was the florist responsible for the amazing massive, globular creations and true to his reputation-his work was once again handed a standing ovation.  For years, he’s been crowned the premier florist to the stars, serving A-List names with an abundance of beautiful blossoms and has grown to become a household name on Beverly Hills.  Mark holds no expense back when it comes to impressing his clients and the Golden Globes were no exception. The floral mogul flew in over 15, 000 roses from Holland and South America, displaying a chic combination of orange hues.  Fashion reviewers are claiming that actors and actresses opted for fabrics toned in metallic and yellow, which Helm’s floral contribution complemented to the “T”.
