Who Knows How to Party: The 2008 Governor’s Ball
Now that the writers have given the green light, the Oscars are a go. So what does that mean, luxelings? That’s right! The Governor’s Ball! I was checking out one of my favorite reads, YumSugar, which had several inside exclusives on the Ball.
YumSugar talked with Cheryl Cecchetto, of Sequoia Productions, the event producer for the Governor’s Ball, and she explained that there would be 1,675 floating transparent globes, gold orchids flown in from Thailand, and the 15 shades of red roses. The gorgeous arrangements (as seen below) were done by Mark Held of Mark’s Garden (who has done the weddings of Tori Spelling, Gwen Stefani, and Shaquille O’Neal).
King Cuisine, Wolfgang Puck created a fabulous menu for the festivities, which included passed hors d’oeuvres, a ceviche station, a noodle station, a shellfish station, a pizza station, a sushi station, antipasti and a Snake River Farms Wagyu Beef entree.
