Look! New China for the White House

We're very curious about how the food and cooking at the White House will (or won't) change after our new President and his family take up occupancy. But we do know what kind of dishes the First Family will be using — well, for big dinner parties anyway...

Pin it button big

Laura Bush just unveiled two new sets of White House china, commissioned by the White House Historical Association Acquisition Trust, a nonprofit organization. Both sets of china are from Lenox. The top photo is of a formal china setting (called the George W. Bush State China Service); there are 320 settings. (Imagine a china cupboard big enough for that!) The second set is for the Residence, where the First Family will live, and it's called the Magnolia Residence China Service. For more on both sets of china, including their purchase prices and the historical connections in their design, visit the original piece at USA Today: • Today's photo: Laura Bush unveils new White House china Related: Obamas in DC at the Hay Adams Hotel (Images: Ron Edmonds of the Associated Press)
