The White House * East Room * 1:30 PM ET: Mrs. Obama will welcome military families, including Gold Star and Blue Star parents, spouses and children, to the White House for the first viewing of the 2012 holiday decorations. Mrs. Obama will deliver remarks in the East Room, and then ask military children to join her in the State Dining Room as White House Chefs Cris Comerford and Bill Yosses, and White House Chief Floral Designer Laura Dowling demonstrate holiday crafts and treats. This year's Blue Room Christmas Tree pays tribute to the courageous service of our armed forces and will feature ornaments decorated by children living on U.S. Military Bases all over the world.
