Easy gift wrapping idea and.........



the most beautiful bridal shower.

Keep going down for an ingenious wrapping idea
(if I do say so myself)


I just need to say this was the most beautiful party I have ever attended.
Every little detail was spectacular, as you can see.



Dean & Deluca catered the shower.









My pictures of the bride were featured.



So this idea came to me and it's a winner. I gave the bride something I will show you guys on Thursday for LYAGY but I had a huge surface space that I wanted to adorn. The bride has my sense of style so I went with this idea.

Tea towel rosettes.
Or kitchen towel rosettes as I have been told. I know in England they are called tea towels. Anyway- whatever you hang in your kitchen to dry dishes or hands with.
;-)

Everyone ooohed and awwwed over it and it was very simple.
Take the tea towel and fold it in half diagonally. Roll it up so you have a long "snake".
Then start wrapping it around tightly on itself into a round shape. Then pin it on the bottom with safety pins when you are done so it holds it shape. I only used 2 pins.

For the leaf I did the same thing but then just folded it in half and then back on itself.

So cute huh? Plus it's a useful wrapping idea too. The bride can use them once unwrapped.

Alright- get ready for Thursday!!

Great idea! I could make it for Mother's Day this year, but I will try it with tissue paper since I have no Tea Towels around.

That's a great idea! So pretty! I saw a similar idea in a shop recently where someone rolled a baby shirt, pants, socks and bib of organic cotton into little flowers and made a bouquet with silk flowers out of them...super cute too when you have a baby shower to attend :)

Lovely pictures! I want a bridal shower like that. Do you think my friends and family would throw me a shower even thought I've been married for almost 8 years?
