Melania Trump put the finishing touches on the White House's Christmas decor yesterday, clad in an all-white look with soaring stilettos.

The 2018 White House decorations were brutally criticized because they included 40 infamously creepy blood red trees.

For 2019, the first lady featured a tribute to American design, innovation, and architecture. Trump wrote, referencing this year's theme.

Additionally, Trump kept the tradition of a giant White House replica - made from 200 pounds of gingerbread, with layers and layers of white icing and banisters of the South Portico and Truman Balcony made from raw spaghetti coated black with icing.

The popular display also features models of landmarks from across the country, including Mount Rushmore, St. Louis' Gateway Arch, the Alamo, the Liberty Bell and the Statue of Liberty, besides the Golden Gate Bridge and the Space Needle.

The flag colours (red, white and blue) taking centre-stage, from fire place covered in red roses, the national flower of the United States since 1986, to flag-themed ornaments in the trees, together with festive gold and green.

Melania Trump has debuted this year's White House Christmas decorations on social media - and they do not disappoint.

More than 225 volunteers flew in from around the country to help decorate the White House during Thanksgiving weekend.

The White House band played Christmas music as photographers, reporters, and videographers got their first look for the annual Christmas decorations personally curated by First Lady Melania Trump.
