Harry Belefonte

Harry Belefonte !
received the Eleanor Roosevelt award at the Women's National Democratic Club last week and I was happy to do the flowers and to attend.  My sister in law arranged the event, she and my mother in law presented the award, and one of the speakers was a long ago high school classmate.  Next year we should do the catering as well!

Anyway, the flowers were pinks, corals and lime green, a little touch of tropicals mixed with roses and other flowers.

Harry Belefonte was every bit as elegant and stately in his 80s as when he was younger.  He told some stories about the things that propelled him toward a life as a civil rights activist and about his friendship with Eleanor.  It was a wonderful evening.
