Seeing the stylish first-lady-to-be Michelle Obama has made me revisit one of my favorite topics - entertaining White House style! Here is a picture of the "State Dining Room" - wouldn't it be a dream to entertain there? For more pictures and a tour of the rooms of the White House, check out this link http://www.whitehouse.gov/history/whtour/
One of my favorite books on this topic is Hillary Clinton's "An Invitation to the White House: At Home With History"
Did you know that the first lady's first tasks upon entering the White House are picking out China patterns (for 220!) and hiring a calligrapher! How COOL!
