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”.

2016 Golden Globe Flowers

Posted by Suzie Canale on Mon, Jan 11, 2016


Last Sunday night was the event of the year in California where glamorous stars walked the red carpet in the anticipation of seeing who would win a golden globe award!  According to reports, the ratings reached staggering heights and that was all due to the brilliant staging of props that was organized by the silver screen’s most talented artists.  The clothing, makeup and jewelry were all part of the sparkle adding to the excitement of the evening including the stunning flowers showcased by the best of the best florists in town.  On every table donned a fresh arrangement that was designed specifically to enhance the celebration for those attending and those viewing the ceremony from their own homes.  Characteristics such as color, texture, vase material and height constraints went into deciding just how to design Hollywood’s hottest event.

Since the show aired, there has been an interesting report from those who both liked and disliked the floral displays placed around the room.  Do you prefer this wild collection of color or do you lean towards a more subdued mix of matching hues?

Varieties of flowers that are included in this arrangement are yellow roses, purple hydrangea, green roses, blue hyacinth, taupe roses and Vanda orchids.  The vase is cylinder in shape with emerald glass set off by silver glitter.  Personally, I think the eclectic shades of bright jewel tones are interesting but may appear confusing to others.  The designer was no doubt going for a flashy splash, which I believe he successfully achieved!
