2021 White House Holiday Decorations

This photograph of holiday decor in the Red Room was taken by David Wiegold on November 29, 2021 during a press preview of the White House holiday decorations. For their first year in the White House, President Joseph R. Biden and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden chose the theme, "Gifts from the Heart." The theme was meant to honor the things we cherish and bring us together despite the obstacles posed by a pandemic, time, and distance. For 2021, the Red Room paid tribute to the "Gift of Performing Arts" with brass instruments suspended from the mantel, violins (seen here) hung from the window, and ballet slippers, tap shoes, and musical notes scattered about a tree.
