It was a bittersweet weekend as First Lady Michelle Obama unveiled the holiday decorations for her last Christmas at the White House. (Cue the waterworks.) With event designer Bryan Rafanelli, our FLOTUS worked under the theme “The Gift of the Holidays,” which translated to a night of arts and crafts with children of military families. She brought back the usual showstoppers through the Christmas tree in the Blue Room, adorned with trinkets that honor the U.S. military, and giant replicas of the First Family’s dogs, Bo and Sunny. She also introduced 56 Lego state houses and this year’s gingerbread version of the White House, which weighed more than 300 pounds.
As if those weren’t enough, Michelle revealed the Library’s tree ornaments that read “girls” in 12 languages and clove-studded fruits decked on the State Floor, representing her “Let Girls Learn” and “Let’s Move” initiatives. And as always, the First Lady did it all in the utmost elegance, wearing a festive floral dress in navy, complete with a bow and pair of sleek silver pumps. How’s that for some holiday style and decor inspo?
