Wrapped up in flowers

Wrap your holiday gifts in flowers

Whether it’s Christmas, Hanukkah or just for fun: there’s always a good reason to surprise someone this month. And the wrapping will be a gift in its own right if you decorate the package with flowers. With a glory lily on an attractive contrasting background, for instance, or with paper flowers. Here’s how to do it.

Option 1: with Gloriosa and Cosmos astrosanguineus

You can turn every present into a celebration with the Gloriosa and Cosmos astrosanguineus. Wrap your gifts as tightly as possible in dramatic black paper for a nice contrasting effect. Wrap ribbon around the parcels and cut to length underneath and secure with black washi tape. Fasten the flower on top by inserting the stem under the ribbon. Oh la la!

Option 2: with paper flowers

If there’s going to be some time between when you wrap the present and actually hand it over, then decorate it with Fields of Joy from Jurianne Matter: a chain of beautifully coloured delicate flowers and butterflies made from paper. It also looks good brightening up a dull wall, incidentally. 

Hand them over!

We understand that it’s hard to say goodbye, but however lovely they may be, you still need to hand over those artwork gifts. Then treat yourself to a beautiful bouquet to make up for the loss. That’s what we call a win-win situation.
