“I am proud to invite all the governors to the White House for this important annual event,” Melania Trump said, greeting her guests at the 2017 Governor’s Ball, “Tonight, we come together as one Nation, leaving political labels and partisan interests behind.”
The Trumps skipped out on the Oscars this year to toast to the nation’s governors on Sunday evening.
According to a report by CNN, the theme of the night was “Springs Renewal.” Tables were draped with white table cloths and decorated with green and white floral arrangements, as seen in the image below from Zimbio.
“The scents of jasmine and roses fill the air as we give thanks for this great Nation and the glory of renewal,” the first lady said in regards to her decor, that corresponded with the event’s theme.
The event was the first official White House party hosted by Melania and while many have been questioning her role as first lady, since she has chosen to stay behind in New York with Barron, I must say I am very impressed with her work. The event was classy, but not too over the top. Of course, the Trumps are billionaires and they’re used to a lavish parties and extravagant events, but the 2017 Governors Ball did not look anymore overstated than the 2010 Governors Ball hosted by the Obama’s:
I also admire that amid all the tension between the two parties right now, Melania made a point to say the evening was about setting political labels and interests aside.
President Trump seemed to be more than pleased with her work, saying in his toast, “I want to just congratulate the first lady on having done a really beautiful job. The room, they say, has never looked better, but who knows?”
Job well done, Melania.
