I love White House State Dinners and always enjoy reading which president's china was used in setting the tables. I have two favorite First Ladies, Michelle Obama and Lady Bird Johnson (remember I'm a Texan).
For some reason I let Michelle Obama's china selection slip by me and had to look it up. I was not surprised. Exactly what I would have expected, a little modern but practical.
It's not cheap to buy china for the White House these days, $367,258. Remember the cry of outrage when Nancy Reagan bought china?
Perhaps you will enjoy looking at all the patterns in the White House China Room.
I'm also interested in the gowns the First Ladies wear to the state dinners. Michelle Obama's last gown is by far my favorite.
The fashion industry is going to sorely miss Michelle Obama.
