Clarke to Share her Behind-the-Scenes Stories at The White House and Demonstrate Floral Arrangements at the annual DMA event on March 26
It was announced today at the Dallas Museum of Art’s League Membership Tea that former White House chief floral designer, Nancy Clarke, will be the guest of honor at the annual Art in Bloom League Luncheon and Symposium on Monday, March 26, 2012.
As the White House chief floral designer, Clarke has worked intimately with First Ladies Rosalynn Carter, Nancy Reagan, Barbara Bush, Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush and Michelle Obama. In her new book, My First Ladies, published by Sellers Publishing, she reveals the touching, funny and illuminating story of what it was like to work for six administrations and to help each first lady find her own personal style when it came to planning flower designs, state dinners and holiday festivities in the White House.
Clarke will be sharing her stories and demonstrating her most memorable floral arrangements at The League’s sole annual fundraiser the Art in Bloom Luncheon and Symposium. This signature event draws on the League’s history of creating and displaying fresh floral arrangements throughout the Museum for visitors to enjoy.
