This weekend the Television Academy is hosting the 71st Emmy Awards in Los Angeles. After the televised award show, the stars and guests will walk on a long red carpet to one of Hollywood’s largest dinner party.
Cheryl Cecchetto and Sequoia Productions have created a gorgeous “Brilliance in Motion” theme for the Governors Ball inside the L.A. Live Event space. The multi-layered design dazzles in red, coral, magenta and eggplant colors. On tables and throughout the event, Kevin Lee and his floral team from L.A. Premier enhance the dining and lounge areas with thousands of blooms in four different colors and fragrant aromas. Illuminated filaments create a shimmering cascade of color throughout.
New this year, the home furniture and accessories retailer Living Spaces generously provided all of the sofas, settees and tables. Partnering with the Television Academy, the furniture will be donated to the Hollywood Community Housing Corporation and Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles to furnish interiors of homes for those in need.
L’Oreal Paris is offering celebrity touch-up lip color, powder and sparkle backstage at the Emmy Awards and inside the Governors Ball for photo-ready finishes.
The night’s winners are treated to a glass of Sterling Vineyards wine while waiting for their personalized Emmy statuettes in the Emmy’s Winner’s Circle. Throughout the night Sterling Vineyards will pour 2017 Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon throughout the evening. They also are bringing bottles of their 2015 Platinum Cabernet Sauvignon and 2015 Iridium Cabernet Sauvignon for guests to taste.
Governors Ball guests will also toast the evening with flutes of Ferrari Trento Blanc de Blancs Ferrari Brut and Ferrari Brut Rose’. Ferrari Trento was crowned Sparkling Wine Producer of the Year 2019 at The Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships and the Producer of the Year 2019.
Other beverages include bottles of FIJI Water on the red carpet and inside the Governors Ball, and Ketel One family-made vodka. For another year, award-winning bartender Charles Joly crafted an Emmy Awards Season cocktail collection including an exotic fruit and spice The Drapper Dragon, a pineapple juice, cold brew with banana chai foam called The Moonlighter and a twist on a classic Moscow Mule.
