West Point’s Scott Reed to help decorate the White House for Christmas
The White House always undergoes a big makeover for the holidays, but this Christmas the decorations will have a little piece of Mississippi in them as well.
Scott Reed of West Point, Miss. will be involved in the 2017 holiday volunteer program as a part of the team that decorates the house for Christmas. Reed is the owner of Petal Pushers, a store that provides floral arrangements, jewelry, antiques as well as items for garden and interior decorating. He will spend four days at the Capitol working with the team to transform the house in celebration of the Holiday.
As reported by the Associated Press, Reed had wanted to be involved in this decoration program regardless of who was in office.
“I’ve always worked with design,” Reed said. “And I just remember hearing about this program years ago and thinking ‘how neat would it be to be a part of something like this?’”
“It was really exciting to see something that I’ve wanted to do for so long come to be,” Reed said. “But I was automatically a little bit nervous because, well, I’m decorating the White House.”
