Celebrating Home Book Review


Holiday decorating shouldn’t be reserved for Christmas. Enjoy seasonal touches throughout the year. The trick is to keep it tasteful. Whatever the occasion, ‘Celebrating Home-Decorating for the Holidays and Seasons” is the essential guide to decorating. Published by Watson Guptill, this is by Seasons of Cannon Falls.

This inspiring book is just too good to be kept a secret. It will have special appeal to gardeners. This emphasizes decorating with naturals. It has page after page of seasonal decorations not only for the home but for outdoor rooms as well, such as patios and porches.

What gardeners will appreciate even more is the fact that the authors emphasize the use of plants, flowers, and other natural materials. This volume is full of ideas and examples for all the various holidays as well as the different seasons.

The authors use ordinary materials, such as pumpkins, pears, and sprigs of evergreens to create a distinctive look for every room or outdoor area. It has more inspiring ideas than gardeners can expect to use.

This shows how to display different kinds of items for the best results. An example for fall uses various kinds of pumpkin and squash and some stalks of broom corn. The squash and pumpkins are nicely arranged on a painted wooden ladder. For a fall centerpiece, the authors arranged candles with miniature pumpkins and squash down the center of the table with some stems of berried branches for accent.

For a July 4th get-together on the patio, the authors arranged white and blue flowers in colored mason jars. They added a bucket with some huge heads of white hydrangeas.

Though it is true that other materials besides plants and botanicals are used in this book, gardeners will appreciate the fact that the emphasis is on using botanicals.

This title devotes a section for each season of the year with six different events or projects for each of the seasons. Themes for summer include summer berries, summer solstice, and gifts of the season.

For each example, there are in-depth details on how to choose a theme and how to select the items for display. For spring, there is a feather tree decorated with flowers and other seasonal, pastel-colored motifs.

This book is lushly illustrated in color. It walks you through the decorating process with easy to follow projects.
