Bright Star Inspired Gift Wrap
Not sure if Bright Star is still playing in Atlanta but I may need to see it one more time to go over those visual elements again. The refined pleats on Fanny's dresses (that triple-pleat mushroom collar being her ne plus ultra) and the way her homemade-but-luxe clothes stood out against an understated, sometimes humble backdrop, are the details a lot of us responded to. So, thinking about holiday gift wrap that could be loosely inspired by the film, I'm starting to zone in on very plain paper (probably kraft) paired with lavishly pleated velvet or taffeta ribbon from M & J.
The ribbon examples shown above are muted greens but M & J offers a wide range of colors. An optional touch: handmade butterfly or star shaped gift tag.

Stopped by Anthropologie at Lenox Square, Atlanta, to see unpacking of holiday ornaments and new seasonal items including boxes of the enormous leather scrapbooks. The picture above shows the album in its decorative gift box. Deep pink and rich blue options were in stock when I left.
