Check out the White House’s Sparkly Christmas Makeover!

The holidays have hit the White House and this year the First Lady put her own chic-meets-chic twist on the decor. “We decided to do something just a little different,” Michelle told press during a preview of the house’s holiday makeover. “We took about 800 ornaments left over from previous administrations, we sent them to 60 local community groups throughout the country, and asked them to decorate them to pay tribute to a favorite local landmark and then send them back to us for display here at the White House.”

What a clever way to add your own touch to the holiday traditions at 1600 Pennsylvania, Michelle! We adore you!
