Devotees of romantic Victoriana are generally devoted as well to Victoria magazine, turning to it regularly for decorating, entertaining, and style ideas. Christmas with Victoria collects the year's best, centered on the holiday theme.
Gorgeous photographs proclaim, in the words of editor-in-chief Peggy Kennedy, "the many moods of Christmas: nostalgic, pastoral, elegant, or ... pretty." In trademark Victoria style, the expected touches all make their appearance; the ornaments, trimmings, displays, and table settings all feature such elements as yards of pastel ribbons, lots of lacy flourishes, arrays of antique crockery and vintage flatware, the patina of the weathered farmhouse, the gleam of silver candlesticks.
An extensive food section (comprising about half the book) supplies tempting recipes for an afternoon open house, a full-fledged winter feast, and a multitude of baked-goods gifts. There's really not much substance to the project component--a few ornaments and stockings, some sachets and garlands, and the like--but everything, as Peggy Kennedy declares, is very pretty. --Amy Handy
