The tables will be adorned with colorful Mardi Gras colors. Centerpieces will be the focal point of the evening with glass Eiffel Tower vases embellished with lustrous green, purple and yellow feathers. Beads and masks will be added to give the centerpiece that extra touch.” Amazing floral arrangements will be provided by Donna Dorman of Donna’s florist.Generous friends of the museum have donated art, jewelry, parties for children and for adults, fabulous trips, wind and spirits, a cocktail party for 30 to be held in the splendor of the Museum Guild’s Festival of Trees, donated by the board of trustees and executive director, and many other items for the live and silent auctions.

I wonder if that was supposed to be "Wine And Spirits" I don't want to win anyone's wind. Sounds like an interesting night at the museum. I'll be listening to the scanner.
