The President’s Seat ~ Inauguration 2013

January 21 started early for our team as we prepared for the Inauguration luncheon held at the Capitol. Using farm fresh and local ingredients, the three-course meal was filled with luxurious flavors presented poetically on white china. The tables were styled with velvet cerulean linens, dramatic cane back chairs and shades of rosy-orange flowers. President Obama enjoyed his meal before heading out to the inauguration parade.
