Want a White House Christmas?

Want a White House Christmas?

Real Estate news from realtor.com gives us news on a White House Christmas from the Chief Tree Decorator.

Few homes get decked out for the Christmas season quite like the White House, and few know more about it than Laura Dowling—who, from 2009 to 2015, served as the White House’s chief floral designer. As the person in charge of all greenery for then–President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama, Dowling decorated over 50 Christmas trees and created hundreds of seasonal arrangements during her time at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Dowling has consolidated all that experience in her new book, “A White House Christmas,” a holiday decor guide packed with photos and illustrations on how to re-create an executive mansion Christmas in your own home. Here are some of her top holiday decor tips and hacks in case you’d like to steal a few.

Pick a theme

“Start your holiday planning by choosing an overall theme,” advises Dowling. “For example, a ‘winter wonderland’ theme is lovely with snow-flocked trees, glittering crystal branches, pine cone boughs, and ice blue and silver ribbons, while a nostalgic ‘vintage’ theme comes to life with bottle brush trees, large colored lights and a 1950s color palette, accented with kitschy vintage ornaments and other retro details.”
