my go-to for christmas wrap is kraft paper mixed with a bright patterned paper and fun, textured embellishments. it's super easy and looks great every time. this year i embellished with red satin ribbon, bright green raffia and charm & fig letter press holiday tags, a mix of shiny and matte finishes that add interesting textures to the whole look.
pssst! if you ever underestimate your box size and fall short of wrapping a gift with paper you already cut, just cover up the unwrapped section with a band of contrasting wrapping paper and BOOM, you're a creative genius that didn't break the 'measure twice, cut once' rule.

lindsay & boris were getting married in austin, texas. with strong ties to the city (hook 'em!) and lots of international wedding guests, a big barbecue dinner was a must!
the rehearsal dinner invitation was all about fun: a chalkboard-style invite with vintage typography reminiscent of rustic honky-tonks let their guests know it would be a laid-back affair with lots of texas style. i couldn't resist a buffalo-check envelope liner complete with a custom logo featuring their soon-to-be monogram, LKB
see the full suite below and a little peek at the happy couple's rehearsal dinner celebration.

the easy hostess gift? keep it classy with veuve cliequot & a letterpress gift tag from charm & fig. i've love to have a case of this stuff on-hand for the holiday season.
