Happy Holidays!


For any other last-minuters like me, I figured out a way to wrap two related presents. Tulle is the answer. I was inordinately pleased with myself. However, for better ideas, go to A Gift-Wrapped Life right now. Have fun wrapping. The holidays of light and gift-giving can be so happy.

And to all a good night.

    I’m not that fancy about wrapping gifts, but even if I were, it would not come out looking like that.

    Thanks for all the greats posts this year.
    Happy Holidays, Road to Parnassus

    I agree! I have spools and spools of tulle(endless color choices) and use it year ’round to wrap gifts. It’s a fabulous choice for sending wrapped gifts…the bows can take a crushing and fluff up as good or better!

    The tulle was a great idea. In recent years, I’ve taken to using wired ribbon because it gives me better control over the bows and gives them a whimsical quality. Hope your holidays have been happy ones.

    So funny because I am obsessed with tulle. It makes every gift look amazing! My best wrapping job was bronze/goldish damask paper with chocolate brown tulle and a pink card. Looked amazing!

    I was very glad to see your giftwrapping style! I like and trust your taste and it sort of puts one of my old insecurities to rest. Here’s the story:

    Several years ago, my daughter was friends with the daughter of a woman that is an internationally famous for her great style. (She is not a celebrity – more of a hard working WASP socialite.)

    Anyway, my daughter came home very relieved that we had wrapped our small gift to her daughter in simple red paper. Apparently this woman nodded and said that gifts of any sort should only be wrapped in plain white, red, gold, or silver and that the ribbon, etc. should finish the rest of the story!

    I don’t quite agree with that – it was just a fluke that we used the red paper vs. a more themed Christmas wrapping paper. Now that my children are older – I can’t say that I will miss the cartoonish prints very much though!
