A red y-emmy bash
By Dr. Iris Mohr, Chief Editor and Founder, Marketing Fashionista
The 64th annual Primetime Emmy Awards is going all RED. The 57,600-square-foot space inside the West Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center is where the ceremony’s “rhapsody in red” dinner party will take place. The photograph you’re looking at is of a table setting seen inside the Emmy Awards Governors Ball preview at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Sept. 19, 2012.
The party extravaganza will be almost entirely be decked out in rosy colors. A giant rose-shaped sculpture will hang above the 3,800 invitees. A staff of about 1,200 will supply drinks and hors d’oeuvres to 380 guest tables draped with red linens. The massive room will be wrapped with 36-foot-tall curtains featuring 2,400 twinkling starlit-inspired bulbs.
“This year’s event is going to be such a luscious treat for attendees,” said Shelia Manning, a casting director and co-chairwoman of the Governors Ball. “For the first time, we’ll have an Emmy winners’ circle at the Governors Ball, where the night’s honorees can have their statuettes personalized.”
For dinner, attendees will feast on smoked salmon; avocado spheres accompanied by a crisp salad of hearts of palm, cucumbers, apples and red radishes; roasted tenderloin with mushroom risotto fries; and parsnip creamed spinach. For dessert, there is white chocolate raspberry cake, raspberry macaroon lollipops and flavored chocolate truffles.
The Emmys is this Sunday, September 23, live coast-to-coast at 7p Eastern/4p Pacific on ABC. Hosting the award show is Jimmy Kimmel. The show will feature nominees and presenters such as Jon Hamm, Giancarlo Esposito, Julianna Margulies and Michael J. Fox.
