First Lady--Mrs. Kennedy




Hello and Happy Monday
to everyone!

Over the next week we are 
going to take a look at five
different decades and the 
First families choice for trees.

Several years ago, Mr Ken 
gave me this book for 
Christmas. What a fun read
it is!!





Back in 1961, Mrs. Kennedy
chose the very first White House
Christmas theme---The Nutcracker.
This theme reflected her love of the
ballet, classical music and culture.
The majestic Victorian tree was
displayed in the Blue Room, with 
it's great height clearing the ceiling
when the star was placed on topped.

On the tree were blue ribbons, small
artificial candles, there were large 
snowflakes hanging next to small
candy canes, baskets, angels, birds
and other animals.

Mrs. Kennedy was known for her 
polish and sophistication and her 
tree design reflected these things.

**Pictures from Google and 
text information is from the book.

Stop by tomorrow and see whose
tree is next.

  1. I love the old timey Christmas trees. I think I would have loved living back then. Simple times. And beautiful decor.

  2. What a fun book! Jackie Kennedy was very sophisticated, so it would only seem right that her Christmas tree would be as well.

  3. Yes, it is.
    It has been fun finding out the reasons behind the trees.
