No home in America celebrates Christmas quite like the White
House. Whether adorned with hand-made ornaments or
thoughtful crafts, the White House has warmly welcomed
celebrities, dignitaries, and hardworking Americans and
epitomized the Christmas spirit. And behind each holiday
celebration is a First Lady who lends her own style and
grace to the festivities.
Christmas With the First Ladies is a look at the holiday
magic that happens at the White House, capturing the
Christmas decorating history and techniques from Jackie
Kennedy through Michelle Obama. Each first lady’s design
aesthetic is profiled, such as Lady Bird Johnson’s themes of
home and family to help heal the nation after John F.
Kennedy’s death; Nancy Reagan’s interest in renewing a
child-like sense of wonder; and Laura Bush’s “Red, White,
and Blue “ Christmas for a nation banding together.
With anecdotes and intimate photos of the presidential
families during the holiday season, as well as personal
craft and recipes used by the first ladies, Christmas With
the First Ladies is the perfect centerpiece for holiday
