Our Holiday Guest List....


Holiday with Matthew Mead (2010) is shaping up to be an exciting Holiday, indeed. We are crossing all of our t's and dotting all of our i's to make sure we have decorated well, served up delicious food and recipes, and invited treasured guests who will round out our Holiday table with style, finesse and joy.

Holiday with Matthew Mead is different than any other holiday or Christmas magazine in three very important ways:

1. Holiday is a publication that enables you, the reader, to truly be PART of the process.
And I am not kidding.
Of course, there is this blog - where you can share your ideas and what is on your magazine content wish list, but it has been done before, you know? Holidays are about sharing and giving, and in this case, you will actually have a chance to BE IN THE MAGAZINE!!! Yes, you, your home, your ideas...sharing your traditions and inspiration with us. Holiday will be hosting readers's input days and asking you to vote on things like our cover image, favourite tips and tricks to get you through the holiday with joy and panache, and more.
But, best of all, we will be inviting you to share photos of your home's bedecked in its holiday finery, so that we can judge which reader's home we will come to photograph and feature in Holiday!!!

( Please note: This contest is now completed. See the winning home in the pages of HOLIDAY!)

2. Holiday is a publication/book-azine that is exclusively sold online. You will not find Holiday on newstands! In order to snag a copy of Holiday with Matthew Mead, we advise buying your copy NOW, as a limited number of copies will be sold. Indeed, we are donning our Santa caps and delivering Holiday straight to your home (or mailbox!). All you have to do is click on the BUY HOLIDAY tab below our banner, and at least this part of your holiday preparations will be taken care of. So, while you are dusting off the halloween costumes and carving pumpkins, we will be filling orders and shipping out your magazine from our holiday headquarters. And like Santa himself, our location remains top secret!!

3. Holiday with Matthew Mead has the very best guests!! Everyone's sweetheart, Stephanie Nielson and her adorable family will be in featured in Holiday in a VERY special way (we can't wait to meet her and photograph one of her holiday traditions!)


And joining Stephanie on our holiday guest list is the glorious Tinsel Trading - one of our favourite sources for beautiful and unusual vintage and contemporary embellishments. Glitter, gorgeous trims and details await inside this charming New York City mecca for design inspiration. Consider it a veritable "candy shop" for crafters/artisans!
Keep watching our blog to find out who else is sitting at the "Holiday table"...!

We hope you will anticipate this Holiday with as much excitement and joy as we are!!



Best,
~Matthew~

  6. Hi Anonymous,
    This issue will be Christmas only, but future issues will focus on each holiday/season separately.
