Christmas at Home ~ Hardback ~ Sandra Kaminski
Create a beautiful home for the holiday season with Sandra Kaminski and Christmas at Home. Whatever your budget, or if time is lacking, even just a small gesture can turn a simple celebration into a memorable occasion. Sandra shows how inspiration may be hiding in the back of your cupboards -- turn old or discarded items into wonderful heart-felt gifts or use them to make a table look magical for the night. With over 600 photographs, Sandra covers preparations for Christmas including choosing and arranging flowers and foliage, and ideas for Christmas trees and candles. There are suggestions for homemade gifts, Christmas stockings and bags, gift wrapping and labels, as well as papercraft and Advent calendars. Create a wonderful table with innovative place settings, napkins, glasses, and an eye-catching centrepiece. All of this is based around sumptuous themes to get your creative juices flowing -- woodland, snowy white, golden pear, regal purple, a French Noel, pretty pastels, a citrus Christmas, perfect pink, a 'recycled' Christmas, children's celebrations, a romantic Christmas.Author BiographySandra Kaminski began her career in the world of fashion and it soon became obvious that she had a discerning eye for colour, design and texture.
