Decorating by the stars
Ever wondered how your favorite Hollywood celebrity decks his or her Christmas halls? Catch the Tinseltown holiday scoop with Christmas Style by Debi Staron and Bob Pranga, a Los Angeles-based decorating duo also known as "Dr. Christmas." With a foreword by entertainment reporter Leeza Gibbons (whose home is featured in the book), this flamboyant decor guide includes full-page color photos of gorgeous Southern California interiors, all beautifully adorned with glittering holiday trees, sparkling lights, exquisite ornaments, lush greenery and festive foods. Christmas Style also includes sections on movie-star themed Christmas trees ("The 12 Dames of Christmas"), pictures of the authors' celebrity-autographed ornaments, and a primer on how to select, trim and dismantle Christmas trees. Alison Hood still waits up for Santa every Christmas Eve and eats way too many cookies while keeping watch at the hearth.
