Summary

• From the best-selling author of Floral Diplomacy (ISBN: 9789058565587)

• Christmas is the busiest season of the year with over 100,000 visitors to the White House during December

• Includes 15 how-to projects for recreating a White House Christmas at home

Christmas at the White House is the most beautiful and grand celebration of the year. As Chief Floral Designer during the Obama administration, Laura Dowling was responsible for the dazzling floral pieces that made the season so memorable. Here, she invites readers behind-the-scenes of this complex yearlong planning process where some of the most innovative and ambitious handmade craft displays were created. From architectural details including intricate hydrangea-covered archways, illusion cube-patterned column covers and gilded maple leaf rosette panels to sugar paste floral vases and robotic versions of the First Family dogs, the décor inspired and delighted visitors and guests from across the country and around the world.

In addition to her White House experiences, Laura shares advice and ideas, tips and techniques for planning holiday displays at home, including step-by-step instructions for re-creating some of the most popular and original White House holiday designs.
