Another tree stands in the Green Room, where a variety of fruits, vegetables and grains were used to decorate the tree, while the official 18-foot White House Christmas tree stands in the Blue Room, decorated with more than 500 feet of blue velvet ribbon, embroidered in gold with each USA state and territory.

Christmas arrived at the White House again this year with yet another unveiling of First Lady Melania Trump's exquisite taste for classy decorations.

"Why do the White House Christmas decorations look like Voldemort is about to come back?" wondered one Twitter user. Decorated by Gold Star families, this tree honors all our troops and families who have sacrificed greatly to protect our freedoms.

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump stand on stage after lighting the 2017 National Christmas Tree on the Ellipse near the White House, Thursday, Nov. 30, 2017, in Washington.

The Blue Room is home to the White House's Christmas tree which towers at 18 feet tall.

The tree was presented by Larry Smith, the victor of the National Christmas Tree Contest. More than 500 feet of blue velvet ribbon weaves through the tree, embroidered with each State and territory in gold. Visitors are encouraged to write messages to soldiers overseas on special digital tablets near this tree. If they then enter the East Garden Room, they'll see the First Family's Christmas card and ornament. There are more than 75 different trees on display at the White House this year. Another four trees are in the White House library.

Four custom-made mantelpieces feature the skylines of New York, St. Louis, Chicago and San Francisco. More than 14,000 red ornaments hang on the branches of 29 trees. They are decorated with 14,000 red ornaments that are meant to symbolize valor and bravery. These include a massive gingerbread replica of the National Mall on display in the State Dining Room.

Melania revealed her White House holiday decorations, floating through the East Wing in all white like a distressed spirit trapped between worlds.
