Meet Frank Lazzaro of Levittown, N.Y. He is the former White House Holiday and State Dinner "Freelance" Floral Decorator during the Ford, Carter and Reagan Administrations. His designs graced the tables of Presidents, The Queen of England, A Prince, The Governors of the United States, an Emperor and an abundance of world famed celebrities and dignitaries attending a White House State Dinner or Black Tie reception one time or another. His over-night success came quickly at the youthful age of twenty-five to this young man of "Little financial means". He grew up in a middle class neighborhood and became one of the youngest Christmas Decorators ever at the White House to hold this privilege position. Born and raised in Jamaica, N.Y., in a simple Italian family lifestyle, he remained in the spotlight of this elegant career with the very privileged surrounding him for twelve years, standing in the midst of the most affluent and powerful humans of the day. Today, He lives a lifestyle of a minimalist and the very simple pleasures of a world that needs more peace of mind and less stress, financial worries, credit card debt and materialism of "unnecessary things" in the human being of today's modern age. "To have and own less, is to have more joy in life".
