This is a great book if you are looking for some holiday ideas. Buy it or check it out of the library early (right after Thanksgiving, if not before) because you'll want some time to plan some of these projects.Martha Stewart is always full of great ideas and this book has one great idea after another. This has decorating, gifts, food, just about everything. Some are more practical than others and many can be simplified so you can do them with your children. Each year my son and I make a wreath for our front door using Marthas book as our inspiration.We also make a simple Christmas ornament each year for each one of our children's classmates. This is time consuming, so be careful which one you choose, because once you have a couple of kids you could be in for a really long project. Since we are up to almost 80 classmates at this point, we have set up an assembly line with each of the kids doing a step and the oldest doing more if needed.If you can find it, Martha Stewart Holiday Cookies, a magazine I bought Christmas 2005 is a great resource for Christmas Cookies. I wish that she would put this out as a book since my copy is already worn after just one Christmas. I have resorted to color copies of the recipes we liked best just to make sure it lasts.
First of all, the book has an unpleasant smell and it appears that Some one stole it from a library. It cost 6.99 and I thought that was enough to Pay to receive a better edition.
So many beautiful ideas and all very easy to do too. Very useful and quite lovely as coffee table décor for the holidays, I was very pleased with this, will use it every year.
