Signature Gift-Wrapping

I love gift-wrapping possibly more than anyone I know. I love paper and beautiful ribbon with coordinating and contrasting colours. But what I don’t love is storing all the supplies.

Small space living requires me to think differently about EVERYTHING including seasonal requirements like gift-wrapping supplies.

Signature Gift-Wrapping is the simple solution for me.

I pick all-purpose combinations suitable for Christmas, birthdays, weddings and more.

Here’s how it works

  • Choose only 1 to 3 rolls of paper in colours that you love. Simple dollar store paper, small-batch handmade paper or luxurious designer collections. Anything goes! If you have small children in your life consider adding something fun to the mix.

Tissue paper takes up hardly any room and is a great solution for packaging  small, awkwardly shaped gifts.

  • Designate a small box to contain extras to pretty up the package.

Tags | Ornaments | Stickers or labels
Stamps | Decorative Tapes
Ribbon | String

  • Last minute additions of small freshly cut greens tucked under a bow are a thoughtful extra.

How to Style a Holiday Table you will Love

Joy and beauty are deeply rooted in meals around our Vancouver table. Whether it is a modest or a lavish get-together, our time with friends is treasured. Every gathering is special – not fussy or flouncy or stressful, but inspired: by the moment, the ingredients in our fridge, the availability of local produce, and a chance to gather the foraged and the found.

Setting a simple table – one that is relaxed and thoughtful, a backdrop and not centre stage – sets the tone for a meal, whether it is brunch, lunch, dinner or just nibbles.
