Thursday was a very FUN day! Set-up began at 7:30am for the Emmy Press Conference. As most of you know, The Emmy's are in September. The Governor's Ball which is the dinner that follows the Emmy's is the LARGEST FORMAL SIT-DOWN DINNER IN THE NATION. In order to create additional "buzz" around the event, the vendors did a "mock" set-up for the press. Luckily, one of my companies, Images by Lighting is a vendor. I got to help out setting up on Wednesday, then set-up and attend on Thursday.
Only in LA at 9am can the press sample specialty martinis, beer, wine, gourmet appetizers, fillet Mignon, stuffed ravioli, and other food prepared by Patina catering that will be served at the Governor's Ball. FYI: The food is VERY good! Yes I had a steak and salad at 10 am while drinking "von" water.... quite the breakfast!!! As you can tell, the event will be over the top! L.A. Premier is doing the flowers and an estimated 9,000 Orchids will be used, as well as over 20,000 roses. There will be 28 or 38 of the colorful columns (sorry I forgot the number). The theme is very colorful this year, with various shades of linens, and purple lounge furniture.
I absolutely LOVE this picture of the LED lit Column!!! Thanks Ray!Hope you enjoyed a "sneak" peek of the Emmy Press Conference!!!!
