Recently, I was in charge of planning a big event that would benefit the Art Museum in my city.  Of course, it is all a blur now…the planning, the coordinating, more planning and more coordinating.  So,   who other than the Senator to capture all of the details with photographs so I would have fond memories to share.  It would never occur to me to take pictures of all this floral beauty, which is why I have him around.
These were the tables in the dining room. I think I could bathe in those blue hydrangeas. Really.  Some people like rose petals…for me, it’s the blue hydrangeas.

These arrangements covered the doorways.
And, this is a closer look at the flowers above the door along with the crown.  They sat on tables near the entrance to the event.  Shhh.  Don’t tell, but I took that centerpiece home with me.
This masterpiece hung above the fireplace.  There was a royal theme going on just in case you hadn’t noticed by now.

And now for the WOW factor…
I think every guest had their portrait taken in front of this Rose Bowlesque type centerpiece. After all, it was the first thing they saw and smelled when they walked in the door.  Those pink lillies hidden in there can really make a room pop with fragrance.
This particular arrangement was too large to fit in the Senator’s car, but don’t think for one minute I didn’t want to attempt it!
Now, on to Christmas!

The Senator's Wife

I started this blog on a whim thinking it would be fun to write about politics while my husband served in the OK State Senate. Jury's still out on that...but, having a front row seat on the sideline of Oklahoma politics has been one big adventure.

  1. Congratulations on a successful event! The Senator is very proud of you for all you did to make it spectacular. You look gorgeous and he looks like a penguin! (Don’t tell him I said that!!)
    Merry Christmas!

  2. Dear Stunning Lady,
    That is beautiful! I want those flowers. Now. Here in Nebraska it is frigid and I am dying for Spring and fresh flowers and it’s only January. Thanks for reminding me of beautiful things and giving me something to hope for.
