“In 1985, when the Reagans hosted Prince Charles of England, Mrs. Clarke filled vases with hundreds of roses. They can be seen in the background of the memorable photos of John Travolta dancing with Lady Diana, her dark gown swirling around her.” -From the Washington Post’s remembrance.
Thank you, Nancy Clarke, for bringing so much beauty to the White House.
Former White House florist Nancy Clarke has died. Her Web site has a lovely gallery of her work for six American presidents.
