Hello and Happy Monday
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
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.
