The Silver Spoon Hollywood Buffet is a relaxation destination for celebrities, stylists and media.  The buffet is normally held before major award shows as a way for talent to prepare and enjoy themselves.  It caters to the red carpet primping which celebrities, stylists, media and industry heavyweights crave.  Prestigious designers, jewelers, cosmetic and skin-care lines from around the world help by presenting exclusive tribute fashions, camera-ready makeup and hairstyling, and fabulous good luck charms to selected guests. 

Silver Spoon Entertainment Marketing co-founder Melissa Lemer commented, 'With our 'Beverly Hills, The Good Life' theme, we showcased the most posh products available from $15,000 Hummer golf carts to miniature horses.'

Lemer's partner, Lorena Bendinskas added, 'We are thrilled to have raised over $25,000 for The American Red Cross to help victims of Katrina.'

Invited celebrities, media and special guests at the Buffet indulged in complimentary beauty services provided by Avon including facials, make up application, manicures and pedicures.  The Diamond Trading Co. gifted Debra Messing, Molly Sims and Kimberly Stewart with diamond rings at the event.  They and other celebrities in attendance sketched their ideal right-hand rings which will be designed and auctioned off for charity. 

Acclaimed hair stylists Joel Warren and Edward Tricomi from Warren Tricomi cut and styled guests' hair at the event to give Angelenos a taste of what they will be offering at the new LA-based salon when it opens later this fall.  Ziba Beauty Center shaped eyebrows via their exclusive threading technique.  SunFX offered tanning while Lumiere® facial rejuvenation took advantage of technology's latest in light therapy to counteract the visible signs of aging. 

Not to neglect the male stars, The Shave of Beverly Hills handed out gift certificates for men to come to their store opening later this month in Beverly Hills while My Skin Dr performed shaves on site.  The mens' area was also stocked with Zino cigars, Everglo liqueur and Chivas Regal spirits.  All celebrities were gifted with Klipsch audio speakers.

Women were delighted with darling clothing from boutique brands Beau & Eros and Taka Wear, a favorite brand of Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Simpson and Britney Spears.   Female attendees indulged in luxury handbags and scarves, courtesy of designer to the stars Charlie Lapson.  In addition, guests Mira Sorvino, Sophia Bush and Shannon Elizabeth were spoiled with gorgeous jewelry from Gorjana.  

The lush white decor was dripping in floral art created by Flaming Florist of LA.  Gourmet cuisine fit for a Beverly Hills princess came from La Brea Bakery.  Pacific Plaza Caviar stuffed guests full of caviar and Scottish salmon while acclaimed Westside chocolatier Comparte's created a white-chocolate fountain, similar to the one Nicole Richie had at her engagement party this summer.  For the traditional, C. C. Berries served up chocolate-covered strawberries and cheesecake.   For the adventurous, Love Cakes dished up exotic chocolate cabernet, mocha kaluaha and margarita-flavored cupcakes.
