Inside the White House; how the Obamas’ decorate for the festive period

As the Obamas’ enjoy their final Christmas in office before moving to their new 8,200 square feet, exclusive eight bedroomed home in the private Kalorama neighborhood of Washington, D.C; we tour the White House to see how Barack Obama and family decorate for the festive period.

The theme for this season is “The Gift of the Holidays” with the grandeur of Michelle’s 19-foot Douglas fir Christmas Tree, featuring various gold and silver ornaments, becoming the main attraction within the house, complimented with silver boxes in the archways and a large ribbon sculpture outside the East Wing.

Following the White House tradition, a gingerbread White House has a place of honor in the State Dining Room, with 150 pounds of gingerbread, 100 pounds of bread dough, 20 pounds of gum paste, 20 pounds of icing and 20 pounds of sculpted sugar pieces.
