Mary was one step away from entering the doorway of the Patron’s Ball at the Philadelphia Flower Show. It would be a glorious preview night celebrating the history of Limoge China and formal European Gardens. A behind the scenes tour would be included – breathtaking flower filled landscapes and exquisite floral arrangements set in Limoge vases. Mary could hardly wait. For this special evening, Mary selected a soft lavender-blue print taffeta with silk overlay of pale orchid. The short cap sleeves highlight the femininity of this rare tagged Hoyer floral gown. Underneath the volumes of fabric is a full hoop skirt, which accentuates the sheer poetic elegance of this creation. Click to play the music.
