White House Christmas

When I lived in D.C. a few years ago I had the honor of going to the National Tree Lighting Ceremony as well as a ceremony at The White House later that year.  The beauty of The White House was astounding to me, and I was in awe walking from room to room imagining all of the Presidents and their families living in the house and all of the important visitors along with all of the parties that took place over the years in the gorgeous rooms!

Last night HGTV aired White House Christmas 2011, and the decorations are too special not to share!

The Blue Room tree includes ornaments from every branch of the military.

 There are versions of Bo in every room.

 The Gold Star Family Tree in honor of all Gold Star Families.

And of course Bo was also featured in the gingerbread house.

If you ever have an opportunity to go to The White House (especially during the holidays) you must go!


  1. My mom gets us the White House Christmas ornaments every year. This is the first year I've had enough of them to make a mini tree full of them. I'll post a picture on Friday in my decorations post.

    Have you heard of these before? They strike me as something you'd like!

  2. ive never had a chance to go to the white house for christmas but the decorations are unbelievable!

  3. Oh wow, how awesome is that. I've never thought of visiting the White House for Christmas but after seeing this post, I must say, it is now on my list of places to visit for the holidays. =)
