HOLIDAY FAVORITE "WHITE HOUSE CHRISTMAS 2011" RETURNS TO HGTV ON SUNDAY, DECEMBER 11, AT 8 PM ET/PT

New York, N.Y. (For Immediate Release--December 6, 2011) With the seasonal splendor of the "people's house" on full display, HGTV's popular coverage of the White House Christmas 2011 returns on Sunday, December 11, at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Designer Genevieve Gorder will offer viewers an insider's look at how more than 130 volunteers work with the White House staff to implement this year's décor theme, "Shine, Give, Share," as well as an exclusive look at the decorations in the official residence of Vice President Joe Biden. In addition, visitors to HGTV.com will see an extensive behind-the-scenes photo gallery of the decorating process, as well as a retrospective of holiday décor at the White House.

"HGTV is privileged to continue its longtime tradition of sharing the special holiday décor and festivities of the White House with the American people," said Freddy James, senior vice president, program development and production, HGTV.

HGTV fans who have enjoyed seeing the holiday traditions at the White House come to life on the network for more than 12 years will be inspired by the tour of the 2011 décor and festivities. The one-hour special features President Barack Obama and his family lighting the National Christmas Tree and highlights the work of 136 volunteers as they adorn the White House in only a few days.

During the special, Genevieve chats with volunteers and White House staff about how they interpreted the décor theme. Many of this year's decorations feature "First Dog" Bo, including a life-size replica and additional miniature figurines interwoven throughout the stately space. Also, new this year is a Gold Star tree, designed to honor the service men and women who have fallen while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. In the kitchen, Executive Chef Cris Comerford showcases the holiday menu, while Executive Pastry Chef Bill Yosses displays a magnificent white chocolate replica of the White House and other holiday pastries.
