I’m off to New York today to wrap up the year and head home for the holidays, so I have a festive little guest post to share with you from Navya of The Little Flower Cottage:
When Kate mentioned that she wanted to do a guest post on gift wrap styling, I jumped at the chance to share what I’ve been whipping up in my own little workshop this season! I don’t know about you, but for me, receiving a beautifully wrapped package is almost as exciting as what’s inside. This year I went with some simple polka dot kraft wrapping paper (a TJMaxx score!) that I embellished with sprigs of pine, cinnamon sticks and gold glitter. I didn’t feel like the white dots were festive enough so I brushed on a thin layer of glue and dusted away with some Martha Stewart glitter. Presto! An instant touch of glam to otherwise rustic packaging. I can’t wait to hand them off to friends and family next week!
My mailman hates me, for sure, because I’ve ordered about a dozen dresses that have all been tried on and returned — my hunt has been a disappointment. I’ve been thinking perhaps I just need to scratch my idea of the perfect holiday dress altogether and try something new this year.Enter some pretty festive pants I’ve been eyeing — maybe a sharp pair of cropped party pants is just what I need to get me through the holiday season? Would you wear patterned pants in lieu of a holiday dress?
I spent this weekend working up a little holiday cheer — from addressing stacks of Christmas cards, to tackling hours upon hours of gift-wrapping I can say that the Christmas spirit has finally arrived at our house. And now I’m super excited about heading home for the holidays — did you tackle any holiday tasks this weekend?
In the next few weeks there are office gatherings, cookie swaps, white elephant parties, cocktail hours, and of course, Christmas day celebrations. So I’m sharing a handful of entertaining tips over on the Wayfair blog to get you through the holiday entertaining season that will make you look like a pro; check them out here!
We’ve got one last color-themed holiday gift guide this week, and I had to save the best for last: pink! I wouldn’t mind wheeling around on that hot pink cruiser or donning those striped bow gloves! And is there any better gift for a blogger than a hot pink external iPhone battery? I think not!
Up next in the holiday gift guide color wheel is green — these gift may be my personal favorites since a bright kelly green is one of the main colors for our upcoming spring wedding! What’s your favorite green gift?
