We were delighted to see our Woodgrain gift wrap given a whole new life in the November issue of Better Homes and Garden magazine. A vase wrapped in our Woodgrain gift wrap creates the perfect trunk for a “growing” bouquet. Think of all the possibilities for fall or winter weddings! How amazing would it be to fill the head table with faux bois vases for the bridesmaids to preserve their bouquets during the reception?! If you’ve discovered new uses for our gift wrap or other products, please share them with us, we love to hear from our fabulous and creative customers! Happy Holidays!
