The only guide to celebrating a greener Christmas shows you how to make your home merry, bright, and eco-friendly! Part craft, gardening, and cookbook, part home décor and entertaining guide, A Greener Christmas lets the whole family get in on projects that are simple, seasonal, and of-the-moment. Welcome guests with candlelit lanterns, hand-stitched stockings, and cozy homemade wreaths. Trim your homegrown tree with shiny recycled tinsel, spicy dried citrus fruits, and wood-scented pine cones. Give heartfelt, environmentally-friendly gifts like homemade herbal teas and mulled wine sachets, all wrapped up in gorgeous, reusable packaging. And set a mouthwatering holiday spread, with the freshest breads, cheeses, meats, and produce, all sourced from local farms. Edited by food and lifestyle maven Sheherazade Goldsmith, this book will help you plan the most beautiful, most festive, and most responsible Christmas yet.
My Review:
I could literally dive into this book and not come out until next Christmas. There are great green decorating ideas, which use a lot of natural ingredients, which means you will spend next to nothing to make them.  I love seeing some of the things we do regularly in our home, in there and knowing that we were being green without even knowing it. Like the cinnamon sticks used to help scent the tree is an awesome idea that my mom has used for years.

It is chuck full of green decorating tips, greenery ideas, table top settings, how to decorate the tree, recipes and ideas for great gifts, and even a green christmas recipe section. It's like Martha Stewart meets Sara Snow or even more like a Sara Snow christmas how to book.

I'm in love dear readers and can't wait until I can use this next christmas to do even more awesome decorating and dinner plans!!! I got so many ideas of what I wanted to do this year I made myself dizzy

It's a definite library addition for anyone who is looking to make christmas more about home and family, and save some dollars while saving the planet.

So put it on your list for next year or even sooner so you can plan a greener Yule and christmas time.
Happy Reading & Be Blessed
