On Tuesday night, President Trump and First Lady Melania hosted their first state dinner. The dinner was held in honor of the visiting French President, Emmanuel Macron, and his wife Brigitte Macron.
Throughout out the visit, Melania has been stealing the spotlight. Tuesday night was no different. First Lady Melania oversaw every part of the event—from the decor to the menu.
According to an earlier article by FFA, there will be 1,200 cherry blossom branches, 2,500 stems of white sweet peas, and 1,000 stems of white lilac present at the event. The Washington National Opera will be performing at the event as well.
The dinner menu was also overseen by the FLOTUS. The dinner will be served in the State Dining Room using Clinton and Bush china. Silver from Tiffany & Co. from the White House collection will be utilized as well.
The menu will “showcase the best of America’s cuisines and traditions, with nuances of French influences," according to the White House.
For the appetizer, guests will receive a salad of greens including goat cheese gateau, tomato jam, buttermilk biscuit crumbles, and a special type of lettuce. The main course includes a rack of spring lamb and Carolina gold rice jambalaya. For dessert, guests will enjoy a nectarine tart and a special ice cream.
Here are the best photos from the event. President Trump and Melania's event seemed to go off without a hitch. Everything looked beautiful. In addition to President Emmanuel Macron and Brigitte Macron, guests included Paul Ryan and his wife Janna, Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen, and Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her husband Bryan.
Here's a look at the outfits that Melania wore earlier in the week. Twitter couldn't get over her wide-brimmed hat.
