I don’t know how long ago I wrapped these silver kleenex boxes,
Was it Christmas 2009, where the boxes dotted the centerpiece of frosted glass snowmen running down the table?
I can’t remember, but I know that I’ve had them a long time, and have used them tons of ways especially this year~
Last Christmas they were piled on the hearth
Mixed with some other shiny packages and ornaments
They decorated the Candy Store
A sweet little tablescape I created for my grandson
In January they starred in the Birthday Party centerpiece
Then they came back for an encore for Valentine’s Day
It is my son’s birthday, but gifts are traditional for Valentine’s Day so I think gift packages for decor is appropriate
May is a big birthday month around here too, so they made their way into the centerpiece again for a May Birthday Party
Tucked in the base of an over turned cake pedestal holding a birthday cake puzzle and surrounded by cupcakes
at a special Surprise Birthday Party
And now here it is the holiday season again and I’m thinking I want to go a little more organic this year
So I’ve been playing around with some more packages
White paper and burlap ribbon, yep, my favorite white freezer paper~ paired with my new favorite burlap anything…
Now the next challenge is incorporating the new look with the old~
The painted burlap ribbon is stiffer than plain burlap ribbon and can be styled almost as well as wired ribbon!
I won’t regret time spent wrapping pretty packages, because I bet I will get lots of mileage out of these too!
Have you started thinking about Christmas decorating yet? I hope I’ve gotten you in the spirit!
I will be joining these fabulous blogs and parties:
