“The Spirit of America” is shining in the White House, First Lady Melania Trump announced on Twitter yesterday, unveiling the 2019 White House Christmas decorations.
The First Family is celebrating their third Christmas in the White House. This year’s theme is a tribute to the traditions, customs, and history that make America great. Handpicked by the First Lady herself, the 2019 White House decorations celebrate the courageous individuals who have shaped our country and kept the American spirit alive:
- Upon entering the East Wing, visitors first see the cherished Gold Star Family Tree, proudly decorated by the Gold Star families of our great American military.
- In the East Room, four star-spangled trees stand tall, glimmering with stars and cascading ribbons. Features of the American flag are proudly incorporated.
- The State Dining room celebrates “America, the beautiful,” honoring landmarks from across our country—including the Golden Gate Bridge, Space Needle, Mount Rushmore, the Alamo, Gateway Arch, Liberty Bell, and Statue of Liberty.
- Ending in the Grand Foyer and Cross Hall, guests find themselves in a glistening winter garden filled with 22 evergreens, 14 golden magnolia topiaries, 10 floral urns, and dusted with fresh-fallen snow.
“I am delighted to share this beautiful exhibit of patriotism for all to see, and excited for everyone to experience the beauty of the #Christmas season!” the First Lady tweeted.
