Get ready for a behind-the-scenes- look with Designer Genevieve Gorder, and the White House staff as they activate the 2012 holiday décor theme,” Joy to All”. From concept to reveal, White House Christmas 2012 will showcase the transformation of each room in the White House, including the Blue Room which contains the official Christmas tree – an 18-foot-6-inch Fraser fir.
During this special, the First Lady Michelle Obama will reveal some of her favorite spaces and rooms throughout the house, including the Grand Foyer which showcases spectacular trees that pay tribute to past First Ladies and the Red Room which speaks to her passion for healthy eating with displays of cranberries and fresh fruit.
“I think next to the North Pole, this is probably one of the most magical places,” said the First Lady as she discussed the holidays at the White House. “The house comes alive in so many ways and with so many volunteers, and such excellent staff, the transformation happens literally overnight.”
Here are some of the fun behind-the-scences- photos from tonights event all courtesy of HGTV. I still can’t believe how many people it takes to carry that tree.
The fun starts at 8/7 CTp.m tonight on HGTV
