Two Tulsa florists will be among those making the flower arrangements for the 55th Presidential Inaugural.

Toni Garner and Mary Lee Evans will be heading to Washington DC early next week to help put together the thousands of flower arrangements needed for all the Inaugural events.

Mary Lee Evans with LeVans Flowers: "We will make arrangements all day long as fast as we can, in cold warehouses, with gorgeous, gorgeous flowers that have been brought in to us. They have designers stand there and make flower arrangements all day long."

Then she says they go back to their hotel, get up the next day and do it all over again.

There will be 200 florists from all over the country in Washington DC next week. If you’re curious about inaugural events, check out www.inaugural05.com.
