Oscars Will Be Filled with 40,000 Roses for Bette Midler

It’s official! Iconic Hollywood actress Bette Midler has revealed that she will grace the stage at the Oscars ceremony on Sunday. But wait there’s more surprising news that will make all of us who fancy fresh and fabulous flower arrangements giddy and excited. 


On the microblogging site, Twitter, and on Instagram the veteran singer-actress expressed her enthusiasm over her appearance. She will be crooning The Place Where Lost Things Go, which was performed by Emily Blunt in the modern film remake Mary Poppins Returns. The song, which was co-written by Marc Shaiman, was also nominated for the Best Original Song category.

Other celebrities performing on the Oscars stage include Jennifer Hudson, Lady Gaga, and Bradley Cooper.

While all this Hollywood glitz and glamour is worth noting, the biggest and probably most beautiful reason flower lovers shouldn’t miss this Oscars for the world on Sunday is Bette Midler’s number amidst 40,000 real roses!

1st look at my design for the 91st Academy Awards. I think we can all agree that the world is filled with too many straight lines & rigid thinking. For this years #oscars I have designed a world based on the ideas of inclusion & community. The design uses warm welcoming shapes that will not only reach out & wrap around the audience but towards the viewers at home. We call this piece the CRYSTAL CLOUD. It’s only one of many looks for the #oscars on February 24 (a week from today). It weighs 1600 lbs & I can tell you (because we teched it yesterday) that it’s truly spectacular in person. Can’t wait for you all to see what we are cooking up for the telecast. Did I mention we have about 40,000 real roses on stage?
