Decorating of the State Dining Room for the 2018 Holiday Season

This photograph was taken by Andrea Hanks on November 23, 2018, during the decoration of the White House for First Lady Melania Trump's "American Treasures" theme. This shot captures the work in progress in the State Dining Room. Each year, volunteers from across the country assist in the holiday transformation of the White House. Volunteers typically assist with a variety of activities including putting up ornaments, assembling wreaths and bouquets, and creating one-of-a kind decorations to complement the annual theme.
