I have some friends who are getting married soon so I decided to personalize wrapping as a part of their gift. I’ve done this technique before (with Valentine’s Day wrapping) but thought it would be fun to try a bridal version with a bride and groom. It’s super easy to do whether you’re artistic or not.
What you need: craft knife, pen, pencil, wrapping paper, black and white paper, tape
Step 1: Wrap the gift. You will need to find where to place the paper dolls.
Step 2: With a pencil, make a shape of a bride in the position you’d like it to be on the gift wrap.
Step 3: Do the same with the groom.
Step 4: Take the gift wrap off the gift.
Step 5: With your craft knife, cut out one half of the paper dolls on a mat board.
Step 6: Fold over the other half to form the 3D shape.
Step 7: Place paper behind the dolls and secure with tape. I used black for the groom and white for the bride.
Step 8: Draw in some details like a necklace and shoes for the bride. Add in a white bow tie for the groom.
Super easy, right? Enjoy!

When I was approached to put together a shoot using kate spade new york products, I jumped at the chance, particularly because I’ve been obsessed with the Castle Peak plate collection ever since I laid eyes on it. Those facets get me every time! But when paired with the whimsy of their Woodland collection, it definitely makes this tablescape a fun and quirky change from the ordinary. I mean, seriously, how can you resist an owl with a floral headpiece to rival that of Marie Antoinette?? Add in some cute salt and pepper shakers, figurines, and even an elephant piggy bank, and you’ve got a seriously adorable table.
Thanks to the fabulous team of Brittany from Brrch Floral and the fabulous Jainé from Brklyn View Photography, this shoot is the perfect inspiration for a bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, or even wedding!
The subtle dotted pattern on these champagne flutes and the sleek Tomkins flatware really complement everything nicely, dont you think? For drinks we just used some sparkling grapefruit juice with a blackberry…the light pink really pulls in the blush from the flowers.
