First Lady Melania Trump is embracing the spirit of bipartisanship for Tuesdays State Dinner with French President Emmanuel Macron and French First Lady Brigette Macron at least, when it comes to the menu and decor.
The Office of the First Lady released details about the Trump administrations first state dinner on Monday, revealing a menu that features greens from the White House kitchen garden, which was planted by Michelle Obama in 2009, and a china service that will include pieces from Bush 43 and Clintons services.
The Clinton china services coordinates with the dinners gold and white color scheme while the Bush service will complement the green and white floral arrangements that will pepper the State Dining room. According to the White House, there will be over 1,200 branches from American-grown cherry blossoms lining the Cross Hall and the State Dining Room will be decorated with 2,500 stems of white sweet peas and 1,000 stems of white lilac.
The Trumps, the Macrons and their guests will dine on food that showcases the best of Americas cuisines and traditions with some French influence: the main course is a rack of spring lamb and Carolina Gold rice jambalaya cooked with celery, peppers, onions, and herbs from the South Lawn. Dinner will be served with a Chardonnay that is described as the product of American and French collaboration and a Pinot Noir that is fermented in French oak barrels. For dessert, theyll have nectarine tarts with crème fraîche ice cream.
According to Politico, no Democratic members of Congress were invited to the dinner and no members of the media were asked to attend.

Sorry to hear it’s not a putting green.
Bullshit as an ingredient? Whoda thunk?
The Clinton china will be used. Twisting the knife on Unhinged Hillary...har har.
Anyone who thinks Moochelle lifted one finger for the White House Garden, is seriously deluded.
I’da plowed that sucker up and sent the Bammers a bill for vandalism of the Peoples House.
Ha! It never was michele’s garden....it’s the peoples garden!...Further Melania asked that it remain when it was suggested it be taken out.
In before the scoop counters scoop the scoops.
Is this the stolen / recovered Clinton china ?
Better wash it good .
All articles I’ve read say that Melania has been involved with every detail of the planning for the Dinner....This is one of the things she loves to do.
I have a hunch a few place settings are missing.....
Better check the garden for “Hippy Hay.”
[Sorry to hear its not a putting green.]
Or the Presidential Outhouse...
Melania “saved” the garden from being destroyed. The Chefs wanted it to remain and so did she.
Get the sand and a scoop ready. I kid you not.
I thought Michelle used toxic soil in the garden. Whose advising her to do this?
