All wrapped up in wrapping gifts

I love wrapping gifts more than shopping for the gift! Here are some presents I wrapped earlier for my husband. When wrapping for men, I try to avoid pretty bows and find more robust string, rope, buckles and anything that looks a little earthy and masculine.

Christmas Sparkle

I am completely in love with Christmas. Every year I go to a lot of trouble to decorate the tree, wrap presents beautifully and design a themed table. Last year I created an over-head table decoration from a palm tree seed pod. I simply hung it from the ceiling with fishing line and added a few cute decorations. It was a stunning addition to the christmas table and it didn't get in the way of any passing of food or conversation!
