THE FLOWER SHOP
The White House Flower Shop is located on the ground floor of the main mansion, just under the iconic North Portico. Here, Chief Florist Nancy Clarke and her staff prepare daily arrangements for places all around the mansion – from the private quarters upstairs to the State Floor rooms and parlors, to West Wing locations. In this segment, we catch up with Ms. Clarke on two separate occasions. First she takes us on a tour through the shop and talks about the planning as she shows us the different arrangements being prepared for the visit of the Queen of England. In the second part of the segment, we visit the Flower Shop on a day when flowers are being prepared for a St. Patrick’s Day celebration. In this segment, Ms. Clarke and her staff also talk about daily life while working at the White House.
