WASHINGTON (WCBS 880) — First Lady Melania Trump on Monday unveiled this year's Christmas decorations at the White House.

The theme is "America the Beautiful" and pays tribute to the "majesty" of the United States.

“Over the past four years I have had the honor to travel to some of our nation’s most beautiful landmarks and meet some of the most compassionate and patriotic American citizens" the first lady said in a statement. "From coast to coast, the bond that all American’s share is an appreciation for our traditions, values, and history, which were the inspiration behind the decorations this year. Thank you to all of the staff and volunteers who worked to make sure the People’s House was ready for the holiday season. Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.”

The East Wing houses the Gold Star Family Tree, which is adorned with ribbons featuring the names of fallen service members.

The official White House Christmas tree, an 18-foot Fir, stands in the Blue Room and is decorated with ornaments designed by students across the country.

First responders and frontline workers are recognized with a tree and handmade ornaments in the Red Room.

This year's gingerbread house is on display in the State Dining room. It features the East and West wings, the newly redesigned Rose Garden and the First Ladies' Garden.

It is constructed from 275 pounds of gingerbread dough, 110 pounds of pastillage dough, 30 pounds of gum paste, 25 pounds of chocolate, and 25 pounds of royal icing.
