“The Gift of the Holidays” is the theme of this year’s decorations.

Military families were welcomed in as well on Tuesday. Children were given the chance to make crafts and treats with White House executive chef Cris Comerford, White House executive pastry chef Susan Morrison and White House chief floral designer Hedieh Ghaffarian.
