Come on, already, and now we are, oh we are gonna go over to the state dining room, so here in the state room, this is a long held tradition, the White Hose gingerbread house
Is this the real gingerbread?
Yes, hi
This is Bill Y, who is the head pastry chef, hi, nice to meet you, he is blame for any additional calories I put on here
White house executive pastry chef Bill Y said his team spent months planning, crafting and simply this year’s white chocolate covered gingerbread masterpiece.
This gingerbread house took us six weeks to build, it weights approximately 390 pounds, and 140 pounds of that is the gingerbread which is the foundation inside, and then another 250 pounds of white chocolate and honey outside, this year we used Mrs. O’s vegetable garden as the thematic part of gingerbread house.
The gingerbread house tradition started in 1969 with the Nixons’, their small candy house didn’t get much attraction, but over the years, the first family gingerbread house has become the main attraction in the state dining room, each presidential family has also added their own personal touch. A mailbox with Amy Carter’s name on it, a path made out of jelly beans a nod to President Reagan’s favorite candy, and M the dog made out of the M for the first lady Barbara Bush, and sitting outside of this year’s house, there is that handsome Bo.
So now we’re coming into the red room and speaking of traditions, this is room, it is red, it is red, it is very red, so it’s very clear, but one of the traditions is that this room has generally decorated in some way with cranberry, so we maintain that with this, yes I love idea, with this particular decoration.
Is the dry cranberry?
Yeah, that’s beautiful
It is a nice idea
Yeah, beautiful
I just noticed at president’s O office, there are dry hydrangeas inside the tree, I like that idea too.
You see that throughout, there are dry hydrangeas here in the trees in the state room as well.
Oh, yes there are too.
But you have to start drying them, take a lot
Could you take at least a week
Right
You can’t start now, because it’s a good idea for you hydrangeas bushes now
That’s right, that’s right
Ok, so from the red room to the blue room
And this is where the grand trees is, and this is my favorite tree, and isn’t it interesting when you look from the outside, it looks like this tree goes on forever
