First Lady Melania Trump unveiled her 2018 Christmas Decorations at The White House, in a sneak peek to reporters on Monday.
The First Lady went with the patriotic theme “American Treasures” in an effort to recognize the country’s “unique heritage.”
Monday’s unveiling included 40 red topiary trees in the East Colonade and an 18-foot Fraser fir Christmas tree with more than 500 feet of blue-velvet ribbon.

In the East Room, multiple cityscapes line the mantels – including the skyline of New York – the President and First Lady’s hometown – front and center.

According to a previous White House statement, Melania has been working on Christmas decorations since at least August.
In a statement, the First Lady said “Our theme honors the heart and spirit of the American people.”
Approximately 30,000 visitors are scheduled to go on White House tours in December.
