Description

Kick off the Christmas season with holiday designer and author Coleen Christian Burke on Sunday, November 26, at the Washington Crossing Historic Park (PA) Visitor Center.

Christian Burke will discuss her book, Christmas with the First Ladies, which chronicles the White House’s holiday decorations, traditions, crafts and recipes from Jackie Kennedy through Michelle Obama. Come learn about the signature holiday styles of our First Ladies and see how you can bring White House decorating magic to your home!

Ticket options are:

  • $35 per person for a "Coffee with Coleen" meet-and-greet at 1 PM, admission to a 2 PM lecture, and a signed copy of Christmas with the First Ladies
  • $15 per person for admission to the 2 PM lecture only

A Washington Crossing native, Christian Burke was part of the White House decorating team for three years and served First Ladies Laura Bush and Michelle Obama. A foremost expert in White House lifestyle history, she is a frequent speaker at The Smithsonian Institute and on national television.

This year she premieres her new Coleen Christian Burke First Ladies Collection by Fitz and Floyd, comprised of hand-painted ceramic collectibles inspired by stories of White House Christmases.

After the lecture, select Fitz & Floyd ceramic collectibles will be available for purchase at 50% off full retail price, and the book will be available for purchase at full price ($30).
