Florist-to-the-stars Mark Held has decorated the most elegant premieres and galas in Los Angeles, so naturally his bouquets are not the least bit cheap. But if you want to make a big-time statement of love, congratulations, sympathy or guilt, order from Mark's Garden. Held has decorated the Oscars' Governors Ball for 20 years, outdoing himself each time with decadent artistry that makes his shop a standard-setter. For just $50, you can thrill somebody with an English garden basket or a traditional arrangement in pastels (or, hell, go crazy — order the $300 version). For a uniquely custom job, make a personal visit to this pretty, studiolike setting, where designers are busy chopping and layering looks that might reflect a spare, Zen motif or suggest the grandiloquence of a hotel-lobby floral extravaganza. 13838 Ventura Blvd., Sherman Oaks, 91423.
