Plot Synopsis

Each year since 1998, HGTV has taken a behind-the-scenes look at the White House as its staff prepares the residence for the upcoming holiday season. The host takes a tour of the President's home, while meeting with the First Lady and interviewing decorators, artisans, pastry chefs, florists and social secretaries.
During the 2019 special, which premiered on Sunday, December 15, 2019 at 5pm ET/PT on HGTV, three-time host Alison Victoria is joined by Maureen McCormick to reveal how the White House has been transformed into a winter wonderland, providing a room-by-room tour of the iconic home. This year's decor theme, "The Spirit of America," is a tribute to the traditions, customs and history that shape our nation and celebrates the courageous individuals who have kept the American spirit alive. For example, the famed gingerbread replica of the White House features landmarks from around the country, such as the Statue of Liberty and Mount Rushmore, while the East Room trees take inspiration from the American flag with gilded eagle tree toppers and red and blue ribbons. During the special, Maureen and Alison craft handmade topiaries and ornaments, create a chocolate tree for the gingerbread display, and hang signs and paper flowers representing their home states on the official Blue Room Christmas tree.
