Mark your calendars for Inspiring, the Lauritzen Gardens Guild Spring Luncheon, featuring guest speaker Laura Dowling. Ms. Dowling, former White House Chief Floral Designer and author of Floral Diplomacy at the White House, will be at Lauritzen Gardens to talk about her inspiration, to provide tips and techniques for floral arranging and entertaining, and to give a fascinating, behind-the-scenes glimpse into both official and private White House life. From White House holidays to Super Bowl parties, state dinners, and celebrity visits, Ms. Dowling has a lot to share. We hope you'll be able to join us!
