"Planters and centerpieces used at the dinner are intended to emulate nature and the flowing 'landscape gardens' that are common in England," explains the White House.
The food represents an American and British partnership, according to the White House. Menu items will feature local ingredients, including produce grown in the White House Kitchen Garden.

An American wine will be paired with each course.
According to the White House, the main course, Bison Wellington, is a "perfect pairing of U.S. and U.K. cultures," while Newtown Pippin Apples serve as a symbol of the American-British partnership -- the apple was so favored by Queen Victoria that she had the customs duty on them eliminated."
