The Trump administration held its second state dinner on Friday night in honor of the visit of Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and his wife Jenny. President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump opened the doors of the White House to dozens of invited guests to enjoy a seated, black-tie dinner under the stars in the Rose Garden. Melania Trump directed the overall look and feel of the dinner, which took several months to coordinate, from the menu of sunchoke ravioli and Dover sole, to the green and gold décor motif (inspired by Australia’s national colors,) the floral centerpieces of roses and golden wattle (the visiting country’s symbolic flower,) and the entertainment, which included the US Army Strings ensemble, who lined up single file to perform along the lengthy West Wing Colonnade.
