First lady Melania Trump officially showed the decoration with which the White House will be covered this Christmas. On Sunday night, Dec. 1, the video in which the first lady adds the last decorative touches with patriotic theme was made public.
In the nearly one-minute video you can see the first lady wearing a cream-colored coat, a matching dress and high heels of the same color as she walks down the halls of the White House.
The Trump family arrived at the residential house on Sunday after celebrating Thanksgiving in Florida, then the first lady took over the Christmas decorations as she usually does every year.
In a Twitter posting, the first lady announced the decorative change for the holiday season at the White House, and also accompanied the publication with the following message:
“The spirit of America is shining in the @White House! 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!”
For this year the exhibition will be accompanied by fake snow, bar decorations, a good number of stars and a huge Advent calendar.
The planning for Christmas began early in the summer so that the decorations would captivate Americans once the rooms open to the public during the holiday season.
The first lady on Saturday wrote a message of thanks to all those who contributed to the decorations and decorating, “Volunteers are hard at work at the White House. Thank you to all who came all across our great nation to decorate the People’s House. Looking forward to view it tomorrow evening! #ChristmasWhiteHouse.”
The White House official account had this note on Nov. 30: “Each year, the White House is decorated for Christmas by a team of dedicated volunteers! The White House Christmas decorations, carefully selected by @FLOTUS, will be on display beginning soon!”
Last Monday the first lady welcomed the Christmas tree to the White House when it arrived in a horse-drawn wagon. The first lady wore a Dolce and Gabbana floral coat and black boots with high heels. The moment was also accompanied by a military band playing Christmas music in the background, according to The Daily Mail.
For this occasion the tree that entered the presidential house is about 16 years old and 16 feet tall.
