For 2021, we are excited to announce that White House Holidays has chosen the State Dining Room as the sixth in a series of the White House Holidays Annual Christmas Ornaments! This is not the Official White House Ornament. Limited Supplies available.

The State Dining Room is the larger of two dining rooms on the State Floor of the White House. The 48' x 36' room can seat as many as 140 guests. Originally the State Dining Room was much smaller and served many purposes. Thomas Jefferson used it as his office and cabinet room. James Madison envisioned the room to be a dining room and furnished it with a table that could seat 40 people.

Over the next five decades, many changes were made to the State Dining Room. In 1882, Chester Arthur hired designer Louis Tiffany to redecorate the room.

During the extensive renovation of the White House in 1902 by Theodore Roosevelt, the State Dining Room was enlarged and furnished with animal heads of bison, sheep, caribou and bear, that were mounted above the oak panels.

George P. A. Healy's 1869 oil-on-canvas painting depicting a seated, contemplative Abraham Lincoln was donated to the White House in 1939 and hung above the mantel in the State Dining Room. In 1945, President Franklin D. Roosevelt ordered John Adams' famous blessing carved on the mantel of the State Dining Room.

Because of the attraction of the portrait of Abraham Lincoln in this significant State Room, presidents Nixon, Reagan and Clinton showcased aspects of the State Dining Room on their official Christmas cards or gifts. Presidential Christmas cards and gifts are documented in the book, "Season's Greetings from the White House" by Mary Evans Seeley.

Quick Note About the Design

This ornament is even more beautiful in your hands and on your tree than it is in the pictures. The 3-D Christmas tree is physically mounted above the rest of the ornament, casting real shadows. The red banner at the bottom of the ornament is surfaced above the beautiful gold frame. Incredible attention was paid to details in the design.
