    Holiday decor at the White House and Bidens’ house: Simple and frosted

    The holidays blew into town Wednesday as two of the most historic venues in the land unwrapped their seasonal decor to audiences full of children of military families.

    The wintry White House was frosted with birch, beech and crystal branches in urns and arches of eucalyptus and bay leaves trimmed with ribbon poinsettias. Bo, the Obamas’ dog, appeared larger than life as a four-foot-tall pipe-cleaner sculpture and as a marzipan dog that stood one story high in front of a gingerbread White House.

    A few miles away at the Queen Anne house that is the official vice president’s residence, six red-and-white stockings were hung at the chimney with care. There was one for each grandchild, and one for Champ, the Bidens’ German shepherd.

    We all know the holidays are all about kids and pets, right?

    Meanwhile, Michelle Obama and Jill Biden, the first and second ladies of the land, proved you can be crafty and look good. Dressed in sleeveless sheaths, they led children through cookie-decorating and card-making projects for troops. In her welcoming remarks, Obama told guests and representatives from the Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots drive about the “creative stations” they would be invited to participate in. “I’m going to help, hopefully, if it’s not too messy,” she said. And there she was in the State Dining Room, dressed in brocade, dye-stamping artichokes under the moody gaze of Abraham Lincoln’s 1869 portrait. Meanwhile, Biden sat on her knees in her red Diane von Furstenberg and helped a group of kids in her living room color cards for soldiers and veterans.
