White House Pulls Out All The Stops For State Dinner With Justin Trudeau

There were adorable dessert animals!

The White House really outdid itself for the state dinner honoring Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Thursday evening.

Sweet treats inspired by the Rocky Mountains were just one item on the menu for the state dinner, which included such notable Canadian guests as actors Ryan Reynolds, Michael J. Fox, Sandra Oh and Mike Myers.

President Barack Obama welcomed Trudeau earlier Thursday for his first state visit to the U.S. The two leaders held a press conference to discuss the future of U.S.-Canada relations, including a joint commitment to fight climate change.
