It's Not About Blog Feature- GBK Pre-Golden Globes Gift Lounge

Posted by Lydia Shoffner on


"I was thrilled that GBK’s gifting lounge for this years Golden Globes was held at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills for, I believe, the very first time.  I love that gorgeous, classy hotel; I always feel ritzier just entering it!

It took place in the second floor Contessa Room, and was laid-out perfectly in such a way that everyone was totally comfortable.  And, as always, it looked beautiful.

My contributing writer on this one is Flo Selfman, who was new to GBK.  She was as impressed as I was with it.  She told me, “The elegance began the moment we entered the hotel and continued into the spacious exhibit room.” Having an artistic eye, she touted the “soft lighting which accented the gold-and-white theme of the displays,” and we both loved the “pops of color” on the front of the “cool DJ booth at the far end of the room.”


"The Artisan Group—I’m always thrilled to see this wonderful collection of artists at GBK, and Flo was bowled-over when she saw the bags of goodies they were gifting each guest!

That’s a big kiss from my formerly chapped lips after using these creamy and pure sticks” (; and The SignifyCollection’s timeless gold chain with two interconnected golden circles (  Whew—that’s a heck of a lot of creativity in one group of artists!"
