Decorating The White House for Christmas

Every year I enjoy watching the special covering the preparations of The White House for Christmas.  The fact that volunteers from around the country get to do the actual decorating makes it extra special.  I have a soft spot for Washington, DC after living and working there for so many years in my previous life.  It's exciting to see all that goes into the decor/menus/gingerbread house and I love that so many visitors are hosted each year to enjoy it as well.

 The "Gingerbread" House was made of a bread dough that looks like the stone of which the White House is really made.
 Adore the mini garden!
and how they incorporate Bo everywhere.
 The White House Christmas card was painted by Larassa Kabel of Iowa.
