MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Members of New Hampshire military families have worked with the Currier Museum of Art to create ornaments for New Hampshire's tree that's part of the National Christmas Tree display outside the White House.

The ornaments incorporate the state flower and tree. Ornaments have a painted collage background of birch trees against a colorful sky and a three-dimensional lilac sculpture in the foreground.

Children and spouses of military members, as well as two adults currently serving, made the ornaments.

New Hampshire's tree is one of 56 trees— representing each U.S. state, territory and the District of Columbia —that will surround the National Christmas Tree.

In 1856, New Hampshire's Franklin Pierce, 14th president of the United States, became the first president to place a Christmas tree in the White House.
