Christmas is almost here, and the girls at 11 Magnolia Lane have been very busy preparing for the big day.  Amy just shared a few of our  favorite things (click here if you still have some shopping to do),  Christy has been sharing the true meaning of Christmas through our Season of Giving series (click here if you want to be inspired), and I’ve been in the kitchen baking lots of holiday treats (click here if you want to gain five pounds!).

Now that the shopping, giving and baking is slowly winding down it is time to move onto wrapping.    Wrapping gifts is one of my favorite things to do, it totally gets me into the holiday spirit.  Making the outside of a package look  just as exciting as what is inside of the package is an art form,  sometimes an expensive one.  I thought it would be fun to share some crafty, elegant and inexpensive ways to wrap your holidays gifts.   I thought it would be even more fun to challenge Amy and Christy to a “wrap off”.   We decided to turn our creative gift wrapping challenge into a little holiday gift wrap game to see how well you all, our  friends and readers,  know us girls at 11 Magnolia Lane?  Do you think you could pick our gifts out of a wrapping paper line-up?   Below are three beautifully wrapped sets of gifts, each in our own signature styles.   Leave us a comment below and tell us who you think wrapped it, and share your holiday wrapping tips with us!

  1. Yes! I LOVE gift wrapping! (and have way too many boxes of ribbons, flowers, scraps of fabric, and more 🙂 to prove it). OK – I think it was Christy who did the Peace and monogrammed (love!) ornament wrappings, Amy who did the silver reindeer and the brown paper (with white polka dots!) and red plaid ribbon wrapping, and Terry who wrapped those gorgeous gifts in the black buffalo plaid paper (which I MUST have) and feathery, sparkly luciousness.
    Merry Christmas to all you 11 Magnolia Lane girls, and thank you for all the lovely blog posts!!

  2. Fabulous wrapping inspiration…Merry Christmas ladies!!!

    Beautiful!. It never ceases to amaze me how talented you all are!

  4. Some of these high end packages also offer to take a few photographs at the couples chosen location.

    Our wedding photo booth hire devices print out images instantly, which give guests a lovely wedding memento, and then the saved images on the device
    are made into a cool album for the happy couple. Most of the time it is
    the bride and the rest of the time it falls to someone like the Mother of the bride or a bridesmaid,
    who often are not fully aware of the reception
    plans the bride has made.
