Dawn of the Present Moon

213 Dawn of the Present Moon

Brown paper packages tied up with string… These are a few of my favourite things! Ooh, how I wanted to take my own pictures for this post, and write an ode describing (and entailing) my love for wrapping presents the old school way… BUT I DID NOT. Okay, but pish posh! Brown paper lends that old, vintage touch to otherwise regular gift paper; I love the rustic feel, and there are so many ways with which to decorate your present.

Because I’m fond of moonlight and roses, lover-ly thoughts, the 1920s and all things Parisian and vintage – I felt most inspired by this D.I.Y idea that I came across on Green Wedding Shoes – for me personally, brown paper looks lovely with deep red and dusty gold tones… I am certain that you can find some silk flowers lying around at home, or old ones that your mother wants to discard, and refurbish them a little bit (before using them to fasten on top of the gift) by painting them gold.

  1. Though the season of gifting is gone, but brown paper and golden silk flowers can work well on any occasion. Thanks for sharing the idea!

      1. Ohh, you can get them at any arts & crafts store. Just ask for the larger sheets, they keep the smaller ones for college kids all the time.
