the most eco giftwrap ever!

Two weekends ago I headed out to the Hamptons for my dear friend Christina’s bridal shower…its always nice to catch up with old friends isn’t it?  Anyway, she’s a very eco-conscious gal, and on the invite, it was requested that we not bring wrapped gifts.  (We didn’t have to bring gifts at all, but I like spoiling her)  Since we couldn’t use giftwrap, and I just couldn’t bring myself to bring just the box, I had to come up with a way to jazz it up a bit, so I bought a couple of paint pens from the art store and went to town on the box!  If I had more time, I probably would have colored in all the pattern to completely cover all the text, but I kinda like it like this too.  I threw on a big green bow, and it was all set!   Do you have any interesting ways of dressing up a gift without using giftwrap?

Modern tea party inspiration

Julianne wrote to me last week after I was having a pretty crappy day, and totally changed it around with her note.  Apparently, she’s been trying to come up with a theme for a party she’s hosting, and after seeing the Esther Coombs cakestand post, came up with a modern tea party theme!  She put together this inspiration that day and I just had to show it off here, it would make a great bridal shower!  Thanks Julianne!
