America's Christmas Tree will be on display in front of the White House in full glory starting this week.

Another tree stands in the Green Room, where a variety of fruits, vegetables and grains were used to decorate the tree, while the official 18-foot White House Christmas tree stands in the Blue Room, decorated with more than 500 feet of blue velvet ribbon, embroidered in gold with each USA state and territory.

Official White House video released Monday shows Melania walking through the mansion's spacious rooms and hallways, admiring the festive, if somewhat confusing, decor. The tree measures 18 feet tall and is dressed in over 500 feet of blue velvet ribbon embroidered in gold with each State and territory. This tree honors veterans and the military and was decorated by Gold Star families - relatives of those who have lost a loved one while they were serving in the military. Members of the association have presented trees for the White House holiday celebrations since 1966.

As is White House tradition, the first lady selects the annual Christmas tree and decorations, and this year was no different. The tree is decorated with patriotic ribbon and invites guests to write digital messages to loved ones on duty and overseas.

The Vermeil Room includes two stunning trees done in "hues of blues and golds".

In the Red Room, the mantle was decorated with a garland complete with white ornaments adorned with the "Be Best" logo - near a wreath constructed of "Be Best" pencils. Last year Mrs. Trump produced a spectacular display of lights during the holiday season, only to receive nasty reviews from the legacy media.

"The State Dining Room is a celebration of our country's national symbols, including the bald eagle, the rose, and the oak tree".

The East Room featured a celebration of American architecture, with wooden cityscapes from four cities - New York, Chicago, St. Louis and San Francisco - placed above the room's fireplaces.
