Melania Trump is not only a classy, elegant, wonderful first lady, but she also has an eye for design.
This year’s White House Christmas decorations prove that!
Melania has just unveiled the gorgeous decor now adorning the White House – all with a patriotic theme.
She calls it “The Spirit Of America.”
Our country’s national flower red roses cover the White House fireplace, star ornaments hang from the ceiling to symbolize the Star-Spangled banner, mini-gingerbread and advent calendar replicas of the White House add to the festivity, and, of course, U.S. flag-themed ornaments decorate classic Christmas trees – including a tree for Gold Star families that lost a loved one in service to our nation.

E Newshas more to say about Melania's unveiling of the WH pro-USA festiveness:
The holiday season is in full swing at The White House!
On Sunday, First Lady Melania Trump unveiled this year's holiday décor via Twitter with a festive compilation video.
"'The Spirit of America' is shining in the @WhiteHouse!" she wrote. "I am delighted to share this beautiful exhibit of patriotism for all to see, and excited for everyone to experience of the #Christmas season!"
To spread holiday cheer, the exhibit features ornate paper stars that are hung from the ceilings along with a festive red carpet and light fixtures. Among the twinkly lights and an array exceptionally-decorated Christmas trees, stands the White House's official tree, which Melania can be seen putting the final touches on in the video.
Staying on theme, the tree is decorated with several patriotic ornaments including an American flag and red, white and blue ribbons. It is also adorned with handmade paper flowers that represent the floral emblems of each state and territory. The FLOTUS even gave her Be Best campaign a sweet shout-out in the display by hanging an ornament that spells out the anti-cyberbullying initiative's name in Scrabble letters.
The Los Angeles Times added:
Melania Trump is celebrating American patriotism at the White House this Christmas, incorporating red and blue into the traditional holiday green, adding a timeline of American design, innovation and architecture and studding a Christmas tree with her family’s annual ornament, the American flag.
The traditional gingerbread White House shares its stage with American landmarks including the Statue of Liberty and the Golden Gate Bridge.
“It is with great joy that our family welcomes you to the White House this holiday season as we celebrate the Spirit of America,” President Trump, the first lady and their son, Barron, say in the signed introduction to a souvenir book that visitors will receive as a holiday keepsake. “We hope you enjoy our tribute to the traditions, customs and history that make our nation great.”
The White House previewed the decorations for journalists on Monday before Trump and the first lady were to depart for London.
The East Colonnade of the White House is lined with double rows of see-through panels etched with more than 60 examples of American design, innovation and architecture, ranging from the Woolworth Building in New York City to the Space Needle in Seattle.
A tree dedicated to Gold Star families that lost an immediate relative during military service stands at the entrance to the hallway while a tree decorated with the Trump family ornament — an American flag this year — glistens at the end of the colonnade.
East Room decorations are inspired by the U.S. flag and feature gilded eagle Christmas tree toppers, mirrored stars and red and blue ribbons. In the State Dining Room, at the opposite end of the hallway, the decor continues to showcase American design.
