New Years Eve at Mar-a-Lago once again!  What an honor it was for me to be invited by The American Academy of Hospitality Sciences to present the Club and its Founder PEOTUS Trump with a special award. This was the third consecutive year that I have attended this annual bash.

As always, it was a super glamorous party.  This year they rolled out a long red carpet that extended over the back lawn and ended poolside.  In previous years they used the main entrance of The Club but of course things were different this time around. Every car needed to be checked by Secret Service and sniffed by dogs.  Several check points were in place upon entering to review each guest, including a metal detector.

Guests mingled on the lawn during the cocktail hour and feasted at the numerous food stations and various open bars.

The Italian food station featured several risottos, a meatballs and garlic bread. The mushroom risotto was stellar!

The entrance to The Grand Ballroom was decorated with beautiful glowing candles that casted a warm light over the shiny marble.

Inside the ballroom, hundreds of tables were ready to receive the VIP guests. There were 800 people attending the New Years Eve Mar-a-Lago party!

The table coverings were made of woven white sequins. The setting was simple yet extremely elegant with full bloomed white roses in sterling silver vases and mini white votive candles.

It was such an honor to award PEOTUS Trump with a one-of-a-kind bronze eagle.

“The eagle represents courage.  The eagle represents freedom.  And the eagle represents strength!  These are the characteristics that our PEOTUS Trump embodies on behalf of the American people and The United States of America.”
