Some of the cast stayed at the Culver from the Wizard of Oz so there is an interesting display in the front windows…

Upstairs, Heidi gave us a tour of the banquet rooms and told us a little about the history of the hotel….

I loved the etched glass doors and beautiful calligraphy labeling all the rooms…

I’m partial to black and white checked marble floors so I couldn’t get enough of the dining area…

The 3 banquet rooms can all open up to flow from one to the other if needed!

On my next visit, I hope to stop in for happy hour and some tasty treats!

Since Deborah V and I are former classmates from our photo classes at Collin College, I got her to pose for me on the beautiful velvet sofa that for some reason matched the blues in her dress. Needless to say, we giggled at ourselves for our impromptu photo shoot and wondered what the people sitting nearby thought!

Just off the entry and lounge area is this doorway leading to the dining room with black and white checked floors….

Above the dining is this small lounge area, I supposed if you were having a party, this would be a fun retreat!

This banquet room was actually Mr. Culver’s private office!
