Put on your gown and high heels, folks, because we’re going posh and pretty this weekend! The stage is all set for the 71st Annual Golden Globes Awards, and Treetopia is there to help spice up the red carpet!

An annual formal ceremony, the Golden Globes awards the entertainment industry’s best and brightest in film and television, both local and foreign. In that one special night, Hollywood’s elite gather to honor their peers and delight fans with a glimpse of their favorite stars at their most glamorous.

This year, the awards will broadcast live from the posh Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, and we’ll be adding eye-popping color and flair to the evening’s proceedings in true Treetopia style.

Three orange topiaries from Treetopia

These lovely orange topiaries, designed especially for the occasion by Treetopia, will be rubbing shoulders with your favorite celebrities in the press room and on the red carpet. With their sparkling array of clear lights, these orange topiaries echo the iconic look of the Golden Globes statuettes. Personally, we’re crossing our fingers for American Hustle for best picture and Parks and Recreation’s Amy Poehler for Best TV Actress in a Comedy. (She deserves that award, seriously!)

So invite your family and friends to keep an eye out for our fabulous creations when you watch all glitz, glamor, and fun on January 12, 2014. And if you’re looking for something special for your own industry event, visit Treetopia for the perfect tree that will fit right into your party.
