First Lady Hosted First Formal Soiree at White House

 First Lady Melania Trump held her first formal soiree at the White House last Sunday during the annual Governors Ball. During the event, republicans celebrated their triumph while the rest of the United States turned their attention toward the Academy Awards, which was held the same night.

In a statement, the FLOTUS said that she was "proud" to host the event in the State Dining Room, where she declared that people have come together "as one nation, leaving political labels and partisan interests behind." According to USA Today, she also said that the party was themed "Spring's Renewal" with scents of jasmine and roses, so as to "give thanks for this great nation and the glory of renewal."

White House secretary Sean Spicer said at a previous briefing that the First Lady put "a lot of time" into planning the annual ball, which has traditionally become the first formal event at the White House for every new president, and which usually falls on the same night as the Oscars.. However, Spicer hadn't been specific as to where the First Lady had been during the bulk of the planning - As TIME noted, she had been - and will be living in New York until June, waiting out the youngest Trump child to finish his school year.

Unfortunately, the lack of supervision from the First Lady seemed to have been noted. The Washington Post reported that the decor appeared simpler than expected, and the mantle behind the dais was glaringly bare, unlike in previous years when it has been filled with florals.

As expected from the president, however, he boasted the size of his audience via a video feed, where he toasted the 46 governors, and their wives and daughters in attendance (which he claimed was a record, although no fact-check was said to be available immediately) forgetting that there are women holding gubernatorial seats.
