Laura Dowling served as Chief
Floral Designer at the White House form 2009 until 2015. In this unique
position, she managed décor and flowers for thousands of White House
events while using flowers as a strategic tool for communicating
diplomatic, symbolic and policy messages. She is renowned for creating a
new romantic style of flower arranging featuring free-flowing lines of
vines and flowers emanating from a classical bouquet.style=" "> This style is most evocative of nature
and the garden, and balances a strong artistic vision with the wildness
of nature. Under her leadership, Laura implemented floral artistry at
the White House, designing bouquets of seasonal garden flowers in a
style that is both modern and refined, yet casually elegant. She often
presents her innovative arrangements in hand-made organic containers
composed of leaves, branches and berries that are woven into patterns
and motifs, creating integrated, cohesive displays that conjure both
nature and the garden. Here, she describes her inspiration, provides
tips and techniques on flower arranging and entertaining, and offers
readers a fascinating behind-the-scenes glimpse into both official and
private White House life.
Jan 31, 2019This book is full of really interesting information about how events come together at the White House. I learned a lot about floral design and, of course, I loved all the beautiful flowers pictured.
Mar 15, 2018I would have rated this book higher if the author had reframed from using the words, "floral diplomacy" so many times.
Apr 04, 2017I'd have preferred a more descriptive analysis of specific events with a photo match to the event. It was refreshing to a peek into the office, though I would have preferred a real behind the scenes look.
