A Touch of Glass

When preparing the perfect holiday tablescape for this year's Christmas dinner, we'd like to remind you to prioritize. We know, you're probably thinking that your only priority at this point will be making sure there is enough ham and green bean casserole to please all of those famished faces, but we'd like to point out the importance of both function and style at the dining room table. That brings us to one of the most important parts of each place setting: the glassware.

That's a Wrap!

Congratulations! We've made it to the final countdown before Christmas Day. With less than one week left to finalize all of the details, it's probably time to start wrapping those gifts.

You're in luck, friend, because we've compiled some unique ideas just for you, and you better believe you'll be kissing that store-bought paper goodbye!

Our favorite funky gift wrap

1. The Crafting Chicks: Dress up the daily newspaper with a touch of candy cane colored yarn. Add a glittery letter gift tag and you've created the perfect vintage look.

2. The Country Chic Cottage: Take simple Kraft paper and accessorize it with a lace doily, some ribbon and a jewel. Instant glamour is all yours!

3. Love. Obsess. Inspire. : Who knew bulletin board materials could create a fun, bright and non-traditional wrapping style?
