Melania Trump really outdid herself with the Christmas decorations at the White House.
The first lady shared a video on Monday morning offering everyone an inside look at the decorations, and it’s clear that she’s gone above and beyond to turn the White House into a winter wonderland. Melania designed the decorations herself with a theme of “Time-Honored Traditions” to pay respect to 200 years of holiday traditions at the White House.
The East Wing is dedicated to service members and their families, with the Gold Star Family Christmas Tree decorated with Gold Stars and patriotic ribbons.
The dining table in the China Room is set up for a family Christmas dinner with the china from President Ronald Reagan. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s 1866 edition of “A Christmas Carol” is on display in the Library.
The State Floor, the Grand Foyer and Cross Hall all pay tribute to the “Nutcracker Suite,” which was the first themed Christmas in the White House in 1961. The rest of the White House is covered in traditional Christmas decorations, including dozens of trees, wreaths, nativity scenes and a gingerbread house.
“The President, Barron, and I are very excited for our first Christmas in the White House,” First Lady Melania Trump said. “As with many families across the country, holiday traditions are very important to us. I hope when visiting the People’s House this year, visitors will get a sense of being home for the holidays. On behalf of my husband and Barron, I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and joyous holiday season.”
The president and first lady are expecting more than 25,000 visitors to tour the White House between now and Christmas. By the looks of it, each and every one of them will be blown away with the festive decorations.
