My personal favorite is the orange and gilt damask with the purple ribbon. Two of my favorite wrapping colours combined. While at this Opera function talking to a few women about gift wrapping and their own ability, it became apparent that women can actually be afraid to wrap. They see it as a skill like interior design, some people have it, some don't. As a interior designer of twenty years, I can safely say it is not the same. I do believe interior design is a inate talent, but gift wrapping is simply a skill anyone can learn as long as they have the right materials. But it did get me thinking through another idea, gift wrap workshops. An idea my friend has been after me to do for some time (she loves any kind of party). So here is my latest project to get off the ground........groups of ten to twenty, great wrapping materials, a hands-on approach to technique, plenty of tips, some delicious nibbles, good background music .............Wrap Room Workshops by A Gift Wrapped Life. A lovely evening to indulge in the creative and relaxing task of gifted pleasure. Doesn't that sound like a bit of stylish fun? Tell me what you think.
