Festive images show how Melania Trump decorated the White House for Christmas

The tradition of US President's wife decorating the White House for Christmas dates back to First Lady Lou Henry Hoover, who put up the the first official White House Christmas tree in 1929 - and Melania has perpetuated this tradition with a somewhat mixed reception over the years.

Of course, there's still plenty to snipe about, as the Twitter response to Melania's surreal video-in which the First Lady, swathed in head-to-toe cream knitwear, straightens tiny wreaths on little White House replicas and sprinkles what appears to be glitter on ornament-bedecked pine boughs- proves.

On Sunday night, upon returning from a long holiday weekend in Florida to celebrate Thanksgiving, Trump made a final walk-through at the White House, checking details of the decorations, which had been installed while she was out of town.

Christmas decor is shown at the White House in this image from video released on December 1, 2019. According to the statement, the State Dining Room, "celebrates America the handsome", with a gingerbread rendition of the South Portico of the White House and landmarks from across the country.

Both the 2017 and 2018 Christmas decorations faced harsh criticism online for the unique choices of white, leafless branches lining the hallways and the red Christmas trees past year.

The pastry team constructed the Gingerbread House out of 200 pounds of gingerbread dough, 125 pounds of pastillage dough, 35 pounds of chocolate and 25 pounds of royal icing. The tree is decorated with handmade paper flowers representing each state and territory.

The official White House Christmas tree is decorated in the Blue Room and measures more than 18 feet tall. She dresses in white for the 2019 Christmas video, in contrast to the black she wore in 2018.

In the East Garden Room is a Christmas tree with first family's annual ornament, the American flag, and the Christmas card.
