First Lady Melania Trump will use the china from the Bill Clinton and George W. Bush administrations at a state dinner for French President Emanuel Macron Tuesday, the White House announced Monday.
“The color scheme is cream and gold and the china settings consist of the Clinton china for the baseplate, along with both Bush (43) and Clinton china for the dinner service,” the First Lady’s office said in a statement. “The First Lady chose the Bush china with the green color palette to complement the spring green and white flowers that will be featured in the State Dining Room.”
The dinner marks the first such occasion of the Trump administration and will feature the normal pomp and circumstance.
The First Lady’s office said the Washington National Opera from the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts will be the entertainment for the evening and that the menu “will be a showcase of the best of America’s cuisines and traditions, with nuances of French influences.”
