This photograph of table settings for a luncheon or a small state dinner was taken in February 1962 during the John F. Kennedy administration. The table settings include glassware from the Kennedy administration, china from the State Service of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, and replicas of flatware from the James Monroe administration. The table is also decorated with floral arrangements in bronze doré or gilded bronze pieces from the Monroe administration. The State Dining Room is located on the State Floor of the White House. The room is often the setting for State or Official Dinners and is the second largest room in the White House.
