Homage to Home

This past weekend I went home to the Eastern Shore of Maryland. I was there to begin planning my wedding. While meeting with florists, caterers, tent people etc... I began to get really excited about all of our out of town guests coming to Talbot County. Although not large, the Eastern Shore boasts 600 miles of shoreline on some of the prettiest rivers in the country. The Tred Avon, Wye, Miles, and Choptank to name a few. A walk downtown in Easton, St. Michael's or Oxford invites a lesson in Victorian , Federal, Beaux Arts, and 20Th century architecture. Gorgeous picnic boats line the docks and fabulous restaurants and shops are filled with DC Politicos and lunching ladies. Talbot County proves itself to be a very chic place for those escaping the lime light.

Cherry Blossoms and Obama ?

How fitting...
Number Four Eleven and the National Mall are in full bloom with cherry blossoms and Barack Obama is in the lane?
Unannounced, Whitaker and Jones Lane became a scene from The American President.
Quickly and quietly Special Agents and The Uniformed Division, dressed in conservative attire, barricaded the area with large SUV's and government vehicles.
Obama was scheduled to be having lunch at the ever so famous Mrs. Wilkes Boarding House.
With all the excitement brewing it was hard not to recognize just what people (including the President of The United States) will do for Mrs. Wilkes fried Chicken! Number Four Eleven being situated right on the corner of the lane provided great stadium seating for such a momentous event.
Here are some pictures of the Prez O, his entourage, and the lovely cherry blossoms in the shop.

A view of the Presidential State Car from the inside of the shop. Appears as if I'm in jail...

The Savannah PD and Secret service from the front window. (notice the cherry blossoms)
The man closest used our bathroom!

The loads of people across the street jockeying for a view of the action.

Secret service contemplating what style monogram they want on their lapel pins.

President Obama leaving... saw his head but wasn't quick enough to grab the shot... but hes in there!

The Presidents Cherry Blossoms...

Our Cherry Blossoms... they light up though!
A new spring display in the shop.
Beautiful table linens by Sferra and gorgeous Bespoke monograms by Number Four Eleven.
