{holiday inspiration: diamonds & stars}

. . . often prefer crisp white paper with luxuriously wide velvet ribbon for wrapping christmas gifts, or heavy kraft paper with fluttery lengths of organza -- but every once in a while there are lovely prints & patterns -- such as this insanely stylish and impossible to find diamonds & stars paper . . .

This is lovely! Black and silver are glamorous together and black is an unexpected color under the tree.

I completely agree -- I just picked up some gray paper, rich red velvet ribbon, dove gray satin ribbon and plenty of white wrapping paper.

I love the way this gift is nestled -- lovely picture.

Hope you are having an equally lovely day, R :)

That's the definition of glamorous wrapping paper.

I'd love to get something wrapped like that, especially if the gift itself was equally sparkly... (anyone want to pass that hint along to my boyfriend?)

This has to be some of the most beautiful wrapping paper I have ever seen. I think it would be gorgeous papered on to the ceiling of my dining room, so I could enjoy it always.

"Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things" For some reason this post reminds me of the verse of this song. How beautiful to enjoy the little things in life!

This wrapping paper is probably one of the most attractive ones that I have ever come across. I don't do the cute and funny wrapping paper as I like mine more sophisticated and elegant just like this one.
