 My Review
What a fun cover this book has! Of course this helped in my decision to read this book at first. I really enjoyed the helpful tips and ideas, I struggle at coming up with creative ideas for birthdays, holidays, or anything celebration worthy. I do with there were more pictures to go along with the ideas, I think it would have added a lot to the book. The book does not just focus the big holidays but things such as spirtual birthdays and Labor day. It takes you through the year and seasons, while some holidays have more info than others. The Christmas section was a bit disappointing to me, it only talks about Christ's birth, which is obviously important but I like to have creative decorating ideas too. There are a ton of recipes I am excited to try, the Easter section boasts quite a few. I think the thing I like the most about this book is that everything is centered around Christ and how to celebrate in a way that pleases Him. For those looking for really new creative ideas, you might not like this book as much. For those who want a more Biblical side of holidays you will like this book.
