Much later, the soirees and games evolved into embellishing the various rooms of the White House with festive flora: The first Christmas tree was set up in the Yellow Oval Room during the Benjamin Harrison administration, and the first electric lights were placed on the presidential tree in 1894 while Grover Cleveland was in office.
