Come on, now already, and now we are, we are gonna go over to the state dining room.So here’s in the state room, this is a long-held tradition-the WhiteHouse ginger bread house.
Is it really ginger bread?
Yes, and
Hi.
Hi.
This is Bill Yosses, who is the head pastry chef. He is to blame for any additional calories I brought on here.

White house executive pastry chef Bill Yosses and histeam spent months planning, crafting and assembling this year’s whitechocolate-covered ginger bread masterpiece.

This year’s ginger bread house took us six weeks tobuild, it weighs approximately 390 pounds. 140 pounds of that is theginger bread which is the foundation inside. And then another 250pounds of white chocolate on the outside. This year we’ve used Mrs.Obama’s vegetable garden as the thematic part of the ginger bread house.

The ginger bread house tradition started in 1969 withthe Nixons’. Their small candy house didn’t get much attention, butover the years, the first family’s ginger bread house has become themain attraction in the state dining room. Each presidential family hasalso added their own personal touch: a mailbox with Jimmy Carter’s nameon it, a path made out of jelly beans as sonar to President Reagan’sfavorite candy, and Millie the dog made out of marzipan for first ladyBarbara Bush, and sitting outside of this year’s house, there’s thathandsome Bo.

So now we are coming into the red room, speaking of traditions, this room….

It is red.

It is red.

It is really red.

So it’s very clear, but one of the traditions is thatthis room has generally been decorated in some way with cranberries. Wemaintain that with this particular decoration.

Oh,
I love this idea. Are these dry cranberries?

Yeah. They are just kind of brilliant idea.

They are beautiful.

Beautiful.

I just noticed at the president’s oval office, there’re dry hydrangeas inside the trees, I like that idea too.

You’ll see that throughout, the dry, there’re dry hydrangeas here, in the trees, in the state room as well.

Yes, in there too.

But you have to start drying them really…cause it takes a lot of work.

Could take at least a week.

Yes, right.

You can’t start now. But this is a good idea for your hydrangeas bushes.

That’s right. That’s what I mean.

Ok, so from the red room to the blue room.

This is where the grand trees is, this is my favoritetree. And isn’t it interesting when you look from the outside, it lookslike this tree goes on forever.

Wow
