Melania Trump’s 2019 White House Christmas Decorations Showcases the Spirit of America

Melania Trump has debuted the White House Christmas trees on social media

The first lady is showing off this year's White House holiday decorations.

The decor was meant to be "a tribute to the traditions, customs, and history that make our Nation great", according to a press release.

Melania shared several photos of the decorations via her official Twitter account on Monday.

Christmas decor is shown at the White House in this image from video released on December 1, 2019.

East Room decorations are inspired by the USA flag and feature gilded eagle Christmas tree toppers, mirrored stars and red and blue ribbons.

The State Dining room celebrates America.

The White House pastry team carefully constructed this masterpiece out of 200 lbs. of gingerbread dough, 125 lbs. of pastillage dough, 35 lbs. of chocolate, and 25 lbs. of royal icing.

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 previous year.

It also shows her adjusting a few ornaments on the Christmas trees, including a collection of Scrabble letters that spell out "Be Best", her anti-bullying campaign.

Mrs. Trump continued her tradition of hanging wreaths on the mansion's exterior windows, 106 in all.

For the 52nd year the White House Crèche is on display.

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".

In the almost 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.

From now until Christmas Day, White House staff are expecting more than 30,000 visitors to pass through the halls of the Washington, D.C., residence.
