Format: Paperback
This book is full of all the trimmings, focusing on Martha's memories of a traditional Christmas. It is filled not only with great projects such as the velvet embossed leaf wreath, and ice wreaths filled with various plants, but also great ideas for gifts (cranberry vodka, yum!) and luscious looking recipes for the holiday season, like pistachio cranberry biscotti and chewy cranberry almond cookies for you cookie lovers out there, and the very tasty looking 3 nut pasta. The whole book is full of great ideas and information that you could use every year in your Christmas planning. You'd want to have a lot of time on your hands though, particularly for the construction of the pinecone village and the pinecone people that live in it! But if you have time, then the book is worth having as what you can't accomplish this year, you can try next year! If you like Christmas the Martha Way, this book is definitely worth having.

There are craft and recipe ideas in here. Recipes are mainly for cakes, cookies and preserves. Craft projects are for things like large nut or pine cone wreaths and a winter village scene made from the plucked scales of pine cones that you glue onto balsa wood. There are also stockings and gift tags decorated with velvet embossed with rubber stamps specially made at a printers, I don't know if thats possible here, you could probably use ready made ones. There are lots of photographs and the book looks nice but compared to other Christmas craft books I don't think there is much here I will make as it would all be too expensive and fiddly and there are few projects you could do with children apart from putting pine cone scales round the edge of photos are using foliage as stencils on cards.

A great Holiday Treasure - and gift 9 Dec 2001
By Louise - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Martha's Holiday book this really touched my heart. My mom has always grown Amaryllis and Christmas Cactus, chapters 4 & 5 really were a delightful surprise. I now know the Christmas Cactus the I have is called "White Christmas". When I told my mom about the charts, she was so interested in the book (she lives in Ohio and we live in Fl.) that I am immediately sending her one for Christmas. My son is a personal chef - so we all love to cook and I love to decorate. The pictures are great as usual, but I think I like the charts about the topic in each chapter. They are beautiful and informative. It was great to see the different types of pine cones and citrus. The best part is that even if you don't use these ideas during the holidays - the things you have learned will be useful all year and will be great to share with friends and family.
Some items may have been in Martha Stewart Living - that's great that the special ideas have been put in this holiday book to keep and treasure. (I don't keep every magazine - I will treasure this book).Thanks again to Martha!!!!

Lots of reprints from the magazine 20 Sep 2001
By Amyred - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
You know this going in, but there arent' as many really neat "new" things as the last books. More biscotti, and a lot of good uses for the endless bags of cranberries in the back of my freezer. I'll start on those for Christmas about November 1, I think. If you like Martha, this is the fifth in the series, but there wasn't anything besides the cranberry stuff that really "grabbed" me. Still, it's great to continue your collection.
