My sister-in-law, Karen, attends Briarwood Presbyterian Church, and a couple of weeks ago she invited me to tour the Caroline House, which is a lovely guest house on the church's property. Each room was beautifully decorated for Christmas. One theme I noticed throughout the house was the use of a certain color scheme: browns, golds, copper, and mossy greens. I love warm earth tones, so this color combination really appealed to me. I decided to coordinate my wrapping paper this year in those colors.
I found wrapping paper at several different places. One of my favorite stores for all things paper is the Paper Works Outlet. (I mentioned them in a previous post about box lunches). You can buy wrapping paper by the foot there, and I chose the gold moire on the far left, the tree design, and the coppery brown paper in the middle. They also carry Caspari paper, which is the one on the far right. I found the other paper at Smith's and at Target.
These two beautiful rolls of ribbon came from K-mart. I check K-mart every year at Christmas because I love Martha Stewart designs, which is what these are. The greenish-gold mesh came from Paper Works.
These little brown boxes and the polka dot drawstring bag also came from Paper Works.
Now it's time to start wrapping!
