Melania Trump Unveils This Year's Patriotic White House Christmas Decorations

First lady Melania Trump arrives to speak about her new Be Best program and initiatives during an event in the Rose Garden of the White House on Monday

First Lady Melania Trump unveiled this year's White House Christmas decor, announcing the theme "The Spirit of America", which is a tribute to USA traditions, customs and history.

The traditional gingerbread White House shares its stage with American landmarks including the Statue of Liberty and the Golden Gate Bridge.

The official White House Christmas tree, which arrived at the residence last Monday and towers 18 feet tall, is adorned with handmade paper decorations created to resemble each state flower, according to the New York Post. Users of the popular social networking website were quick to share their awe and appreciation for the American-themed elegance on display in our nation's capital.

In the Blue Room is the official White House Christmas tree, which arrived the week before from Pitman, Pennsylvania.

The holiday season is in full swing at The White House!

More than 225 volunteers flew in from around the country to help decorate the White House during Thanksgiving weekend.

Christmas decorations are on display in the Grand Foyer at the White House. In the State Dining Room, at the opposite end of the hallway, the decor continues to showcase American design.

The gingerbread White House, built from 200 pounds (90 kilograms) of gingerbread and slathered in 25 pounds (11 kilograms) of royal icing and 35 pounds (16 kilograms) of chocolate, showcases the South Portico, including a staircase made using angel hair, fettucine and spaghetti. A White House staffer noted to CNN the garland, though incredibly lifelike, was actually made of faux flowers, though real ones were placed in gold holders on a long dining room table.

Last week, FLOTUS welcomed this year's Christmas tree to the White House via a horse-drawn carriage.

They were the least controversial decorations to adorn the colonnade in the first lady's tenure as Christmas-decorator-in-chief.

"We are in [the] 21st century and everybody has a different taste. In real life they look even more attractive". In this room, visitors can count down the days of the holiday season with the White House Advent calendar hanging in the windows.

White paper stars hung from the ceiling of the East Colonnade, a passageway that had been transformed by clear and white arches, and lined with clear plastic panels printed with white line drawings of more than 60 examples of American architecture and innovation.
