In March we reported that White House floral designer Laura Dowling was mysteriously no longer on the job. Well, today’s Washington Post updates us on the search for her replacement. After months, the legions of applicants have been winnowed down to 25 semi-finalists.
The process, similar to that used in 2008, is being described as a super-stressful, “reality-style flower off, which included designing three arrangements in four hours for the first lady, chief usher, social secretary and White House photographer.”
Also, the lucky winner of the process had better be prepared to be hurt.
