There was a massive tent outside of the Obama's family lavish $12 million home for the party

The layout was stunning - and took place outside of the famed politico’s home in a massive open-air white tent. Guests hung out inside the tent and in the backyard, and there were heat lamps where guests could keep warm, and chic white side tables alongside woven lounge sectionals and wooden chairs.

The luxury even extended to the bathroom, where guests were treated to amenities including antiperspirant wipes, lint rollers, and hand sanitizer sprays.

Guests were also privy to ingredients to create Mexican hot chocolate, with pieces of dark chocolate and chilis on deck.
