While most people are quick to grab the “Happy Birthday” paper when attending a birthday party, our trendy and solid designs offer something unique and special for any occasion. Offering different design options can inspire people to gift more thoughtfully and creatively. One of our designers attended a bridal shower over the weekend and wrapped up a unique gift for her cousin’s big day! Read on to see what inspired her to wrap in a creative way.
This weekend I attended my cousin, Christine’s, bridal shower at a rustic barn in New Hampshire. It was great to get together with family and friends to celebrate this important milestone in her life. I wanted to get her something personal that could be enjoyed for many years to come. Of course, the first place you look for something personal is Etsy! After scrolling through so many products, I stumbled upon a custom recipe box. I thought this was the perfect gift, not only because Christine loves to cook and bake, but it is also something she can hold on to and pass on to her kids one day.
Once the box came in I filled it with some recipe cards and started to think about how I wanted to wrap up this lovely gift! Floral is a very popular option for bridal showers and weddings, but that didn’t seem like Christine’s style. She is a country girl having a rustic themed wedding at our family farm, so I decided to take an alternative route. I grabbed a roll of Metallized Brown Kraft wrapping paper in Chrome Bumper, this wrap is an instant classic with just enough shine for the occasion. To finish it off, I wrapped around a piece of Wired Burlap and layered the Luxury Satin Ribbon in Champagne on top. Not only was this combination of ribbon the perfect balance of rustic and elegance, but it also created the perfect sling to slide the card into!
Christine had so many gifts to open, but the most exciting part for me was when she as handed my gift and exclaimed: “Oh I love the wrap!”. It made me happy that I went with an alternative route. What gift would you wrap up in a unique way?
