I particularly like the tree in the oval office,

The gingerbread White House is very impressive.

I don't like the shiny trees in the green room, either.

The library's tree is my favorite, but I think it would look better if it didn't have the giant banner on it. Something smaller, like a thin garland with the words on it, winding through the tree would have looked much better.

I like the tribute to the military in the Blue Room, too.

I agree, that's definitely Pat Nixon, not Eleanor Roosevelt.

I totally agree about the banner,, that's the red tree right? It is too "stiff".
Oh good, I was really wondering if I knew my first lady's... who shall we write to to point out the mistake? any ideas?

Thank you for posting this Suzan!! Everything is so elegant and beautiful!! Glad we got to see it.

The shiny trees in the green room are not my favorites either, but I like the creativity and I'm sure they're more impressive to see live.

I agree that the banner is a bit large on the tree in the library. I noticed it is also at the base of the oval room tree. Maybe the words, "Shine, Give, Share", are part of why the shiny trees in the green room were created.

The honoring of the military families is a touching and beautiful idea and nicely done.

To tell you the truth, I only like the stars in the hallway.
