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 ladyís design aesthetic is profiled, such as Lady Bird Johnsonís themes of home and family to help heal the nation after John F. Kennedyís death; Nancy Reaganís interest in renewing a child-like sense of wonder; and Laura Bushís ďRed, White, and Blue ď 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 gatherings!
