2016 Trends & Inspiration: Sweet Petites

The Sweetest Thing?

Perfectly petite prints all new for 2016!

Size & scale played a big role in the design construction of our Everyday 2016 line. We love the oversized florals used in the Garden Blush collection, but also developed an affinity for designs on a much smaller scale. Tiny geometric patterns in soft, gentle pastel colors translate perfectly into our collection for Baby. Fine tooth textures create warm, fuzzy feelings while repetition of line and shape maintain order. We incorporated this trend into all categories of our wrapping range, proving that this year, we are really sweet on petites!

2016 Trends & Inspiration: Cosmic

Stars in our eyes for…cosmic trends!

The popularity of space movies and science fiction fantasy isn’t just for the ultra nerdy anymore! People everywhere are adorning themselves (and their spaces) with space themed art and objects. Both kids and adults can get on board with fresh futuristic themes of time and space travel. Colors are moody and metallic, with all the shades of the spectrum. Holograms and foils are everywhere, and planetary icons abound. It’s a whole new world, and the truth is out there…We couldn’t be happier to introduce our Galaxy wrap & bags, and emphasize the need for glitter toppers & tissue more than ever!

How does your garden grow??

Florals of ALL kinds played a big role in our 2016 Everyday Collection. From soft, pretty, delicate hand painted buds to bold, graphic tropicals with pops of color, we really went GAGA over the GARDEN this year! Using florals to create gift wrap was an easy decision, the hard part was deciding which flower was our favorite! What makes this trend really spectacular is how it can reach so many moods and encompass so many events. From Garden Blush, with it’s classical, yet modern take on traditional florals to Garden Party, an eclectic celebration of color and life, we have every occasion and every age group covered. With a wide variety of beautiful options that makes Garden Gaga translatable to many categories, we DARE you to try and pick a favorite!

2016 Trends & Inspiration: Caliente

Is it getting HOT in here??

When designing for our 2016 Everyday Collection, we were inspired by the intricate patterns of Mexican textiles and pottery along with the explosive colors used by artists like Frida Kahlo. We incorporated over-saturated hues in spicy oranges and pinks with touches of vibrant marine blues to convey a sense of tropical energy and effervescence. Caliente means “hot” in Spanish and true to its name, this trend warms…and wows! Our wrap and bags from this collection are perfect for any festive fiesta, especially when paired with bright gift tissue and lots of layered ribbon. Crafted tissue poms and bright banners can be welcome accents to this party, along with florals and glitter galore.

If you’d like to spice things up, check out some of our favorite features from the CALIENTE collection below:
