Ok, I know the actual gift is important but the right presentation can make your present more remarkable. I like hearing a lot of ooohs and ahhhs when I present a goodie. Here I used a 4x4x4 chocolate brown box, ribbon, a butterfly or paper flower. It isn’t always about wrapping paper. Lovely & [...]
Olive & Cocoa

I found a creative paper source that I want to share with you. Check out Kate & Birdie Paper Company for the most adorable wrapping paper. They also have a great collection of greeting cards, boxed note sets, notebooks, and invitations.
Presentation is EVERYTHING!
Love your Hostess!
