The heart of Christmas is joy & generosity; nowhere is its spirit more beautifully captured than in this graceful volume from the editors of Victoria magazine. Their favorite Christmas vignettes form the basis for this elegant approach to America's best-loved holiday, lavishly illustrated with four-color photographs. To set a romantic & festive mood at home, Victoria The Heart of Christmas offers special decorating ideas-fresh lilies tucked into the front-door wreath; treasured family photographs framed in silver & hung on the tree; a mantelpiece with white roses & gold ribbon; a table set for two with heirloom lace. It may be food that is at the heart of our richest & fondest memories of this glorious season - the goose elaborately carved, the aroma of gingerbread cookies escaping from the kitchen. Here you'll find page after page of recipes for traditional holiday treats & gift ideas from the kitchen-creamy trifle, spicy plum pudding, lavender jelly, & a complete Victorian dinner Dickens would have loved.
