From NBC's Andrea Mitchell
People close to Nancy Reagan say Michelle Obama hit all the right grace notes at yesterday's White House lunch for the former first lady.
Most notably, Michelle brought out the Reagan china, which Nancy loved seeing, and made sure to decorate the table with her favorite flowers, peonies.
Mrs. Reagan told friends at a dinner in the Capitol last night that she was wowed by both President and Mrs. Obama and their hospitality.
She was toasted by a bipartisan group, including Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Republican leaders Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, and former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan.
