ABOUT: (FROM THE DUST JACKET) IN EVERY YEAR THERE IS A CHRISTMAS. YET EACH COMES INTO YOUR HOME AND INTO YOUR MEMORY AS CLEARLY AND TIMELESSLY AS THE FIRST.

OUR BOOK, CHRISTMAS WITH SOUTHERN LIVING 1983, IS MEANT TO HELP YOU ENRICH THE LIVES OF YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS. THE IDEAS AND PROJECTS HAVE BEEN CHOSEN FOR THEIR SHEER BEAUTY, FOR THEIR PRACTICAL VALUE AND WITH A BOW TOWARD THE GREAT CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS OF THE AMERICAN SOUTH.

WE OFFER A PHOTOGRAPHIC SAMPLER OF CELEBRATIONS AND DECORATIONS THROUGHOUT THE REGION: "CHRISTMAS AROUND THE SOUTH". SWEET GRASS BASKETS FROM CHARLESTON AND RED HOT PEPPERS FROM TEXAS BECOME ORNAMENTS AND WREATHS. CANDLES GLOW IN THE WINDOWS OF GASTONIA, NORTH CAROLINA, AND DOLLHOUSES ARE DECORATED FOR THE HOLIDAYS IN ANNISTON, ALABAMA. IN OLD SALEM, A MORAVIAN HERITAGE IS REFLECTED IN UNIQUE EIGHTEENTH CENTURY "ILLUMINATIONS". A SIMPLE TWIG CANDLEHOLDER FROM A FLORIDA CABIN AND SKY HIGH DESIGNS THAT COVER AN ENTIRE BUILDING ARE ALSO PART OF A SOUTHERN CHRISTMAS.

"DECORATING FOR THE HOLIDAYS" IS FILLED WITH NEW IDEAS FOR IMAGINATIVE ARRANGEMENTS AND ACCENTS. WELCOME FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS TO A PARTY...OR A SEASON...WITH THE EXTRAVAGANTLY SIZED WALK-THROUGH WREATH. OTHER OUTDOOR WREATHS INCLUDE SEDATE DELLA ROBIAS, A LOW COUNTRY DESIGN WITH CRAB SHELLS AND LICHEN-COVERED TWIGS, A LONG-LASTING WREATH OF ROOTED IVY, AND A WREATH OF PINE STRAW TOPPED WITH "HIBISCUS" MADE FROM THE DRIED SPATHES OF SPLIT-LEAF PHILODENDRON. FESTIVE TOUCHES FOR YOUR HOME BEGIN WITH A FAMILY MEMORY WREATH TO DISPLAY TINY TRINKETS THAT CELEBRATE THE HAPPY TIMES IN THE LIFE OF THE FAMILY.

THERE ARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAKING TRADITIONAL DECORATIONS (A VICTORIAN TREE UNDER GLASS AND COLONIAL FRUIT PYRAMIDS) AND FOR NEW DESIGNS (FISH AND ANGELS CRAFTED FROM FOIL AND ORGANDY FAVOR-BASKETS FOR PARTIES). SUGGESTIONS FOR MANTEL DECORATIONS AND TABLE SETTINGS WILL STIR YOUR IMAGINATION. CREATE A CHRISTMAS SETTING WITH A TABLE SKIRT OF RICHLY COLORED HOLIDAY FABRICS AND QUICK AND EASY FRAMES AND MATS TO FIT YOUR FAVORITE SANTASHOTS. HANG COOKIES...REAL AND FELT....ON A TREE, AND SPRINKLE FELT COOKIES ACROSS A TREE SKIRT TO MATCH. INTRODUCE THE WONDERFUL SMELLS OF CHRISTMAS WITH APPLE-RING WREATHS AND COOKIE CANDLEHOLDERS.

A "CHRISTMAS BAZAAR" OF ESPECIALLY CHOSEN SEASONAL CRAFTS, INCLUDES COMPLETE INSTRUCTIONS FOR INEXPENSIVE AND EASY-TO-MAKE GIFTS AND DECORATIONS. SEW OLD WORLD CAROLERS WITH SOCK FACES AND BEAN-BAG BODIES. EMBROIDER A GENTLE PORTRAIT OF MARY AND HER BABY. CROSS-STITCH A CHEERFUL SKIRT FOR A CARD BASKET. CUT A TEDDY BEAR OR A SAILOR JUMPING JACK FROM WOOD. NEEDLEPOINT SOME ORNAMENTS ON METALLIC CANVAS. STUFF A LITTLE LAMB FOR THE TREE OR FOR A CHILD'S POCKET. GLUE TOGETHER BRIGHT RIBBON-WRAPPED DRUMS WITH DRUMSTICKS OF COTTON SWABS. MAKE ORNAMENTS FOR THE TREE BY TURNING WALNUTS INTO FRUIT BASKETS AND CURTAIN RINGS INTO WREATHS.

LET YOUR CHILD DO THE PAINTING AND YOU DO THE SEWING FOR A PILLOW YOU BOTH WILL CHERISH. JUST FOR CHILDREN ARE THE TWIG BASKETS WITH PISTACHIO-SHELL FLOWERS, A GINGERBREAD MAN BOOKMARK TO TRACE AND COLOR, AND A CHRISTMAS TWIRLER. WRAP YOUR GIFTS IN BOXES, BASKETS, AND BAGS MADE WITH NEW DESIGNS AND TECHNIQUES.

"CELEBRATIONS FROM THE KITCHEN" INCLUDES MANY NEW RECIPES TO HELP ADD A SEASONAL FLAVOR TO YOUR SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY. THE RECIPES FOR ALL THE COOKIES ON THE COVER AND THROUGHOUT THE BOOK ARE GIVEN.
