Every year, the White House gets decked out in elaborate decorations to celebrate the holidays, and the Trumps have put their own personal touch on this season’s Christmas flair. The official theme this year is “Time-Honored Traditions,” meant to pay homage to over 200 years of White House holiday celebrations.

First lady Melania Trump unveiled the transformation on Monday. See inside:

The official Christmas tree stands tall and regal in the White House Blue Room. It is decorated with the seals of every US state and territory.
The first lady, like many before her, has taken a leading role in overseeing the holiday preparations. Here she is marveling at the handiwork of the White House staff.
From cakes to cookies to tree ornaments, Trump has been taking care to make sure everything is in place in time for Christmas. Here she is adorning one of the many trees.
