The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'Christmas With Southern Living 2005 (Christmas With Southern Living)':

Reviewer wrote:
If you're one-stop shopping for great trimming, gift-giving, and cooking ideas, it's hard to do better than Christmas with Southern Living. Filled with glorious photos, excellent directions, and extensive recipes, the large, lush volume presents a bounty of ways to decorate, craft, and entertain in true Southern Living style. Elegant centerpieces feature pears and partridges, candles and kumquats. Chandeliers drip with ribbons, glass ornaments, and greenery. A clever mantel scarf disguises pockets to hold gifts and treats. Imaginative cookie houses mimic a barn or a country church. Soups and stews, cakes and chocolates are just the beginning when it comes to recipes; there are also full menus for a Mediterranean feast, a rustic cabin meal, a full Southern-style Christmas dinner, and other irresistible party ideas. An exhaustive source list provides contact information for supplies as well as specific items (such as china, furnishings, and even entire historic houses) showcased in the photos. An added bonus is the holiday planning guide, complete with entertainment organizer forms, helpful holiday hints, napkin-folding diagrams, and card and gift list blanks. Crafters and hosts from any geographical region will enjoy preparing for the holidays under the expert guidance in this stunning book. --Amy Handy
