The Ultimate Guide To Holiday Cooking and Decorating

Updated on June 16, 2014

This is a wonderful guide to Christmas entertaining from Southern Living magazine. With color photos to inspire you Christmas creativity. Recipes for holiday entertaining, main dishes and desserts. Get some ideas for holiday gifts for friends and family. It is everything you need to have successful holiday parties and foods.

I particularly enjoy that fact that more than half of the book is filled with wonderful holiday recipes. The rest of it has photos of home decorating ideas for easy to create decorations and gift that can be handmade. It gave me some great ideas for table setting and centerpieces.

The entire book if full of beautiful photos of Christmas wreaths, decorated mantels and other home decorations. Some can be made easily and would make great holiday creations. I have always enjoyed holiday decorating and enjoy making some of my own personalized decor. It make it easy to have things that go with the theme I choose for holiday decorating.

I love to cook and bake and my family knows that when the come for the holidays they will be treated to homemade foods. I also like to give baked goods as gifts and decorate the containers for each individual person. I sometimes use container that can be used again. One year I gave my brother cookies in a decorated fishing tackle box. He was thrilled no only for the Christmas cookie but he used the tackle box whenever he goes fishing. Some other containers I used in the past were jewelry boxes, sewing boxes, and reusable storage container. What ever you do for your Christmas traditions this book will give you some new inspiration to create a very special Christmas.
