It's a Wrap

Today I had the luxury of spending a few minutes checking a few of my favorite blogs; and as seems to happen, one great blog tipped me off to 10 other great new blogs. I found one called and was interested by all that I saw. Sande stocks the Paris bird paper that I used for my Romantic Homes shoot, and I'll keep an eye on her blog and site next time I need a super cute wrap!
Sande is the pro, but I thought I did a pretty good job on my wrapping for my shoot for Romantic Homes. I had originally wanted to use a French-themed color combination for the gifts, but couldn't find just the right shade of satin ribbon, so I decided to use what I had on hand and add in a few other complementary wraps. I started with the French Bird, Postcard and Paris Map wraps that I got at Rogers a few months ago, then added in the presents wrapped in black & white toile-ish paper from the Drug Store in Newport. Each of those dressed up in red to unify; with a nod to my latest-favorite Dutch book, I used taupe and white tulle as well as "petticoat tulle" on a few little gifts, also tied up in red. Lastly, I found the red with white scrolly paper at Rogers, and added in the white bows with a little glitz of glitter dots.

Not bad? I thought it was cute, and interesting, but not far off from classic....
