In the picturesque Hudson Valley village of Tarrytown, New York, there is a small castle called Lyndhurst that attracts over 75,000 visitors each year. It is one of America’s finest Gothic Revival mansions, but at Christmastime it becomes something more, something magical; that’s when designer Bob Pesce decorates each of the castle’s 15 main rooms in the style of a different children’s story. In A Fairy-Tale Christmas, readers all across America can experience that enchanting transformation and learn how to make it happen in their own homes.

See what Cinderella’s sitting room looks like fully decked out for the holidays, or what Little Red Riding Hood hangs on her tree. Take a look at Snow White’s bedroom, with seven pairs of stockings over the mantle, or Alice in Wonderland’s game room, with its playing card–bedecked tree. Featuring 150 glittering photographs, this book offers detailed decorating instructions that allow readers to re-create many of the same effects. Recipes inspired by the “stars” of each story—from The Nutcracker’s Sugarplums to Peter Pan’s Crocodile Tears Punch—are included as well, along with fascinating facts about these beloved tales. This charming book is a beautiful keepsake that captures Lyndhurst in all its holiday glory as it guides readers into giving their own yuletide homes a special, fairy-tale feel.
