Open House Merriment Book Review

Open House Merriment Book Review


Reviewed by Christine Weiher, Editor,

The holidays are a perfect time to get together with friends and family and feel all warm and cozy. It's the time to impress your guests with cheery decor and fabulous dishes to pass around and taste. In Open House Merriment you'll get fun ideas and food to please everyone of all ages.

In this handy guide you are provided with quick and easy crafts that let you spruce up your home with festive accents. From yarn ornaments to paper garland to burlap gift bags and holiday banners, you're sure to find something to wow your guests with. My favorite projects in the book are the terrariums; you can make a rustic terrarium out of frames! Add dirt, rocks, pinecones and anything else you'd like for a unique home decor piece. In the back of the book are general instructions on how to piece together some of the projects. It’ll teach you how to make and dye pom-poms, how to create certain embroidery stitches, and it also provides diagrams to help perfect your project.

Not only does your home have to look amazing for your guests, but it has to smell amazing with fabulous foods. Open House Merriment is filled with 17 delicious recipes including caprese bites, ham and brie mini bread bites, crab cake sliders, chocolate mousse, cheesy chicken tidbits, peanut butter cookie pops and so much more.

Whether you're looking for a sampling of appetizers and desserts, or you want to turn your home into a winter wonderland, this book will be your go-to this holiday season.
