An abundance of trees and flowers decorated in white and gold grace the Grand Foyer and the Cross Hall.

The official White House Christmas tree stands 18 feet tall in the Blue Room, and includes handmade paper flowers representing every U.S. state and territory.
The State Dining Room features a massive gingerbread White House as well as other landmarks across the U.S. including the Golden Gate Bridge, the Space Needle, Mount Rushmore, and the Liberty Bell, among others.
