A pictorial feast, as floral artist Tage Andersen creates fanciful decorations to liven up the season. Though he employs traditional themes, objects, and scenes, his creations are so innovative that they redefine the concept of decorating for the holidays. He consciously blends the sense of familiarity behind the scenes that reappear each year at Christmas, while reinventing them to recreate feelings of expectation and longing for the next holiday season to come. Also, in his narration, he beautifully describes the transition from the spartan atmosphere of Advent to the culmination around Christmas itself, and to the denouement through the New Year. In pictures and in prose, this book is an inspiration to anyone desiring a fresh floral aspect to their holiday season.
