We love fashion. We love glamour. So, of course, we love the red carpet! Our floral arrangements, interior designs, and event ideas are often inspired by the designer gowns that adorn the Golden Globes and Grammy Awards. High neck lines, sexy open backs, asymmetrical drapes, refined ruffles, sheer polka dots, bold colors, flashy metallics, one-shoulder straps and romantic lace; we just can’t get enough! We each have our own favorite; Leah loves Chanel, Colby admires McQueen, and Carrie adores Lhuillier. All of these designers have daring and detailed red carpet designs as well as unmatched and magnificent bridal apparel. Luckily we still have the Academy Awards coming on Sunday February 26th! Sequins, pearls, and fancy heels…our creative minds start spinning!
Speaking of the Academy Awards, have you seen what the Official Governors Ball Cocktail is this year? Oscar’s signature champagne cocktail is called the Moet Red Carpet Glamour. It is a beautiful cocktail topped with a single rose petal. *sigh* We love when flowers are used in unique & surprising ways! There are many edible flowers you can use to create drinks and appetizers like rose hips and citrus blossoms, but if you would like to treat your party VIPs to Oscar’s exclusive, you can find the complete cocktail recipe at: http://oscar.go.com/blogs/party/moet-signature-cocktail-winner
Leave us a comment to let us know what makes your creative mind spin! Tell us what you think of these gorgeous photos too! They just happen to be from one of Whimsical Gatherings’ 2011 events. This VIP room design was from a large corporate function held at the Knoxville Civic Auditorium and Coliseum. We invite you to enjoy more of these photos on our Facebook page where we have uploaded many of our 2011 events!
Enjoy the Academy Awards next week and please drink responsibly.
