The theme of the White House decorations this year was “Simple Gifts”. Each tree had a banner across it that reminded us to be thankful for our everyday blessings.
For instance, this tree celebrated the “Gift of Stories”:
And this one was the “Gift of Music”:
This one was the “Gift of Friends and Family”:
You get the idea…right?

The main tree represented the “Gift of the American Spirit”:
In the red room was the “Gift of Traditions”:
And, I can’t remember what the gift was in this room, but the flowers were gorgeous!
