Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Taking on the Christmas season, greeting-card designer Engelbreit (Mary Englebreit's Home Companion) further extends her design influence into the home. A visual treasure trove of seasonal ideas, the chapters tackle different decorating areas in the home, from yards and front doors to fireplaces, table settings, centerpieces, Christmas trees and display settings for showing off ornaments, Santas, snowmen or other collectibles. Engelbreit's artwork and her own favorite Christmas decorations are featured throughout. Each of the eight chapters concludes with a simple, down-to-earth, do-it-yourself project; e.g., a felt tree skirt, a decoupaged plate, painted glass and an appliqud sweater, as well as other such seasonal necessities as Christmas stockings, wreaths and angel tree ornaments.
