Mark's Garden Florals For the Oscars Governors Ball

Preview the Gorgeous Florals at the Oscars Governors Ball and Learn a DIY Arrangement!

Mark has not only been the official floral designer for the Governors Ball for many years, but he also created the florals for several celebrity weddings, including Nicole Richie and Joel Madden's, as well as Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi's.

Mark Held of Mark's Gardens has been the man behind the gorgeous floral arrangements and tablescapes at the Oscars Governors Ball for 19 years. We had the chance to catch up with Mark today at a preview of the event, which is the official afterparty for the Academy Awards. This year, Mark went in a new direction, focusing on an all-red theme. He didn't limit himself to working with just roses, however. In fact, he even found ways to incorporate crimson-tinged succulents, tulips, amaryllis, and calla lilies, culled from sources as far away as Holland and Singapore. Check out the gallery for more details from our chat with Mark, as well as his tips for re-creating the gorgeous, oversized rose centerpieces he and his team created for the party!
