on december 8th, i got a heads up that the white house was launching a pinterest account and that they were inviting a few pinners to the white house for a holiday social on the 17th. i sent in my application and was luckily chosen (security clearance pending) to go! what a treat!!
we had a wonderful tour of the christmas decorations at the white house, along with some insider information. for instance, this seriously stunning column? there were four of them. and it took something like 60,000 berries to create! photos don't do them justice.
so. many. trees. it smelled absolutely AMAZING. and each one was so pretty.
OMBRE TREE. need i say more??
very "pin-worthy" terrarium ornaments -- complete with miniature bo the dog!
the official white house christmas tree. it must have been at least 20 feet tall. stunning.
our merry little crew of pinners!
huge thanks to kasie and everyone at the white house for an amazing day!!
