wrap it up
I'm going for colour this year. Between our reindeer wrapping paper, edible baskets and peppermint candy/tissue paper combo above, everything heading out of Chateau P resident hands will be merry and BRIGHT, indeed. Of course there will be loud bursts of washi too. I'm going all 90's and bringing raffia back. And I just bought some beautifully soft electric blue TINSEL to make little wreaths for the top of gifts. And I hate tinsel. What is wrong with me?! Just to keep the colour overload in check, I do have a roll of brown paper to tone down the odd parcel here and there so the recipient won't need to put on their sunnies to open it. I expect I will use this rather sparingly though. I'm looking forward to some lazy evening hours of wrapping this weekend, in front of Christmas movies, of course.
So what's your style this year? Merry and bright? Or sophisticated and subdued?
