My Favourite Midori Ribbon........and some new ones

When I say I love the colour chartreuse it is for many reasons, some sentimental another story for another day but mostly for it's ability to be beautifully chummy with any other colour especially when gift wrapping. The visual power of the colour chartreuse is a scientific fact and you can read why here. It will simply enhance any wrapping paper colour, solid or patterned, you have on hand. When readers ask me what my favorite ribbon is I would have to say the Goldfinch Double-Face Satin from Midori, a well-known company within the gift wrapping industry for their high-quality papers and ribbons. Midori's Goldfinch is what I consider a true chartreuse and I consider myself to be a bit of a chartreuse snob. Silly aren't I? I caught up with Midori's product line this morning and noticed that the 1 1/2" Goldfinch (aka Chartreuse) is now available in smaller 5.47 yd. rolls, perfect if you want to try this brilliant and sophisticated ribbon colour. If you happen to be a committed Chartreuse lover like me, you can also order a full roll here. Looking for a ribbon to give you a signature wrapping style? Some of the newer designs seen above in the Midori Icon Ribbon collection have presentation personality written all over it, especially if you tend towards using kraft, black, or solid wrapping papers. How cool is the Ancient Airships and Greek Key? How sweet the Lovebirds, Elephant, and Buggy? And I will be the first to tell you any of these would look downright fabulous layered with the Goldfinch (aka Chartreuse).

    Have a great weekend, Sande.

  3. I adore the color also. Happy Weekend to you.

  4. Thanks to a wonderful friend, I fell in love with the colour chartreuse. Now I think of it as one of the most elegant shades. I love using it with chocolate brown and golds for Christmas time. And I love your combination on an earlier post with turquoise, it comes alive in another way.

    This weekend it's all about red & white - Happy Canada Day Sande!

  11. Sande,

    I must say that your blog posts over the years have led me to my great appreciation for the color chartreuse. I wouldn't mind a roll of satin ribbon that color...


  12. I didn't know that I'm a chartreuse snob, but glad to join the club! Goldfinch is a beautiful color and double faced satin is the best. Thanks for the tip.

  13. Love visiting you as always Miss Sande! Love this color and the post makes me think I may want to add a chartreuse pillow in my grey on grey room for summer!! The firework show here will begin soon on all the beaches~ We are staying home:)

  14. Love your site and all the photos and book suggestions (which were fab and passed on to others), but you must be on hiatus. When are you coming back????? Ah...........maybe when it's cooler. MMR


Your comments are such a lovely addition to my day. Thank you.
