Maggie Barrett peeks through the flowers at the party that Jose Freede and daughters, Cathy Freede, and Margaret Owens, hosted for a recent Symphony Show House Evening at “The Trio in the Abbey”. The guests were in The Contemporary House in The Abbey Café where a tent was set up, complete with chandeliers. Bouquets of blue iris, yellow and orange roses and white hydrangeas decorated the tables and tall vases with the same flowers plus calla lilies were on the buffet table where tenderloin and shrimp were served, along with a separate table of various desserts such as chocolate mousse, tarts and cake.
