White House Christmas decorations unveiled by First Lady Melania Trump

She also tweaks a mini-wreath on a window of the traditional gingerbread White House in the State Dining Room.

Melania Trump put the finishing touches on the White House's Christmas decor yesterday, clad in an all-white look with soaring stilettos.

"I am delighted to share this lovely exhibit of patriotism for all to see, and excited for everyone to experience the beauty of the #Christmas season!" she tweeted Monday morning, along with a video of herself, going room to room, tweaking and inspecting the details, a cupful of fake snow in one hand to sprinkle on branches of some of the 58 trees. She dresses in white for the 2019 Christmas video, in contrast to the black she wore in 2018.

According to a statement released by her office, each wing and room of the White House highlights a different aspect of "The Spirit of America".

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

The video also includes a nod to the First Lady's own work: a Scrabble ornament which spells out "Be Best", a homage to her public awareness campaign which centres around well-being for youth, and advocates against cyberbullying and drug use.

The 20ft Nordmann fir tree from the Windsor Great Park, which now sits in the castle's St George's Hall, is decorated with red and gold baubles this year.

President Trump did not mention the White House makeover in an early-morning Twitter tirade Monday, before he departed for a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in the United Kingdom.
