The White House’s Holiday Look
Decorators used about 800 ornaments left over from previous administrations. The ornaments were sent to 60 local community groups throughout the country, and decorated to pay tribute to a favorite local landmark, then they were sent back to the White House for display. Landmarks include the Statue of Liberty, the Boston Celtics, Chicago’s Lincoln Park Zoo and the DuSable Museum of African American History.
The official White House Christmas tree is lit with energy-saving LED lights. Six of the trees on display at the entrances of the East Wing, West Wing and North Portico will be replanted after the holidays by the National Parks Service. Chef Bill Yosses and his team personalized the annual white chocolate-covered gingerbread White House to reflect the first family’s first year in the White House.
