Kimberly Hicks, owner of RSVP Event Group, applied to decorate the Oval Office back in July.
The First Lady and her team chose a Christmas design for the White House over the summer, but Hicks says the theme is being kept under wraps until she arrives.
“I just started jumping, I was so excited and the next morning when I woke up, my first thought was ‘did I dream that? am I really going? oh, I am really going!” said Hicks.
Over 6,000 people across the country applied for the chance to volunteer to decorate.
Hicks flies out on the 22nd and will be back December 3rd.
