I was so honored to spend time with my flower friends as a volunteer to assist with the floral decor for the Congressional Club’s First Lady’s Luncheon. See what happens when 18,000 stems of American grown flowers arrive in D.C. for a luncheon to honor First Lady Melania Trump.
The floral experience was written about in Florists’ Review by Debra Prinzing . Our dear friend Kelly of Petals by the Shore was one of the lead designers alongside Colonial House of Flowers and Margaret Joan Florals for American Grown Flowers .
