Details of 2023 Vermeil Room Holiday Decorations, Biden Administration

This close-up photograph of decorations in the Vermeil Room was taken by David Wiegold on November 27, 2023 during a press preview of the White House holiday decorations. President Joseph R. Biden and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden selected "Magic, Wonder, and Joy" as the 2023 holiday theme. The decor was inspired by children and how they embrace and revel in the holiday season. The decorations in the Vermeil Room honored music and performance during the holiday season. A mechanical theater featuring United States Marine Band figures occupied the center of the room. Christmas trees with musical instrument ornaments also stood on both sides of the stage. The mantel was decorated with the Official 2023 White House Christmas Ornament honoring the presidency of Gerald R. Ford, as well as ballerinas, musical instruments, and sheet music on a garland.
