editor’s letter

IN THE SPIRIT If there were a contest between the three spectral manifestations of Christmas in A Christmas Carol, my money would be on the Ghost of Christmas Past. Even in the 1840s, Charles Dickens used the homey traditions of the winter holidays to wrap his readers in a glow of nostalgia for simpler, more innocent times. Everyone has different markers of what makes Christmas actually Christmas: the smell of fir needles in the living room, a homemade ornament with your name on it, sentimental old music and movies you couldn’t bear other times of year but now cause you to tear up a little. This year, to celebrate our 95th holiday at Better Homes & Gardens® magazine, our talented editors waded deep into the archives to find their favorite holiday ideas…

countdown to radiant skin

Radiance—no matter what your skin tone—is about evenness (aka smoother texture and fewer dark spots) and light reflection. Achieving it, however, can be a challenge. “As we age, cell turnover slows down and dead skin cells pile up, which contributes to a dull complexion,” says New York dermatologist Josh Zeichner, M.D. “And cold, dry weather dehydrates skin, which reduces its ability to reflect light.” Not to worry. Although pigment issues take more time to address, you can get glowing again by making a few key tweaks to your routine. 1/WHAT YOU CAN DO IN ONE HOUR Manipulate light like a pro. Use luminizing skin care and makeup to help your complexion shine in all the right places. GIVE YOUR FACE A MINI MASSAGE The best quick radiance fix, says celebrity makeup artist Lucy Halperin,…

JEWEL TONE Christmas At Jennifer Griffin’s home in an Oklahoma City suburb, Christmas looks like a great big party the moment you step inside. Collages of paper rosettes and stars brighten the foyer, and mini villages and forests spring up on bookshelves. Jennifer’s jewel tone holiday decor layers effortlessly on top of the black, white, green, and gold palette of her everyday look. Here’s how she does it. SHOP THE PARTY STORE Fans, globes, rosettes, and stars come in multiple colors and patterns, collapse for storage, and cost only a few dollars each. Jennifer joins these lightweight pieces to make exuberant displays throughout her home. THINK VERSATILITY Rather than buying holiday-theme accessories, Jennifer springs for accents that work with her holiday palette but can be used any time. The striped pillow on the sofa, right, adds…

Choose a design, personalize it, track RSVPs, and send reminders. minted.com PARTY DETAILS It seems like a nobrainer, but include as much info as possible on the invite.
