Melania Trump, the First Lady of the United States of America (FLOTUS), took to Twitter to share the Christmas decoration that she designed for the White House.


In one of the images Melania uploaded, she appeared wearing a navy-blue winter ensemble and red gloves while gently touching one of the Christmas trees in the room. A second picture showed her looking and caressing the decoration in front of her.

For the third image, FLOTUS posed in the middle of a long hallway that was surrounded by red Christmas trees in all sizes. The final one of that batch showed Melania in a room filled with trees beautifully adorned.


In the caption, she wrote, “The White House is sparkling for the Christmas season!” While a lot of people considered that the photos and the decoration were astonishing, several others sent their negative thoughts.



Some people compared the “blood-red trees” with the ones displayed in movies like “The Handmaid’s Tale,” Monsters, Inc.” and “The Shining.” Others photoshopped one of the images and added a white hat on the red trees.


More photos showing the decoration in the White House set clear that several garlands and pencil wreaths had the “Be Best” phrase written on it, something that some users made fun of as it is “incoherent.”



As news.com.au reported, Melania has allegedly been working on 2018’s festive game plan since August, choosing the patriotic theme "American Treasures" and recognizing the US’ “unique heritage.”


“Our theme honors the heart and spirit of the American people. Thank you to the many volunteers and staff who worked hard to decorate the halls of the People’s House in Christmas cheer. On behalf of my family, we wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,” said FLOTUS in a statement.


Later, the White House explained that they had chosen red for the decoration as an extension of the pales or stripes, found in the presidential seal that the Founding Fathers designed, to show "valor and bravery."



Another tree has fruit, vegetables, and grains as decoration to represent the country’s “bounty and harvest.” The official White House tree, located in the Blue Room, is 18 feet high.


Melania chose blue velvet to decorate it, so it has more than 500 feet of ribbons and garlands, as well as the name of each state and territory of the US.


Another striking Christmas tree is the Gold Star Family one, which honors troops and their families. For that tree, the White House invites visitors to write messages to loved ones in the military on digital tablets provided.

Melania and Donald Trump are expected to welcome more than 30,000 people who will be part of the 100 open-house public tours that will take place over the Christmas period.
