White House Florist Named for 2015

It was report­ed by the Wash­ing­ton Post last week that the White House has named a new Chief Flo­ral Design­er after many months of search­ing to replace for­mer design­er, Lau­ra Dowling.

Hedieh Ghaf­far­i­an, an Iran­ian-born immi­grant who was raised in Cal­i­for­nia and built a suc­cess­ful flo­ral design busi­ness, will become the next chief White House florist, the office of the first lady, Michelle Oba­ma, announced on Thursday.

We had report­ed in our August newslet­ter that the search was on. Read more about the new Chief of Flow­ers for the White House.
