Presentations: A Passion for Gift Wrapping
Broadway Books, 2005 - Crafts & Hobbies - 207 pages
"I have shared with you the reasons I like wrapping presents, my personal sources for inspiration, and some favorite ideas. I hope this book gives you the ability to define those things for yourself and in the process, to bring a small joy, a memory, or simply a moment of pleasure to you and to someone you love." -From the Introduction With her brilliant sense of style, designer and bestselling author Carolyne Roehm makes the case in Presentations that there's just as much pleasure in wrapping gifts as in receiving them-and that beautiful packages guarantee memorable celebrations. For everyone who loved At Home with Carolyne Roehm, one of America's premier style-setters now offers her ideas for creating breathtaking gift wrappings using readily available paper, tags, rubber stamps, ribbons, artificial flowers, and other inexpensive materials. Arranged seasonally, and taking inspiration from Roehm's love of nature, travel and collecting, and fine art, the book focuses on holidays as well as on ways to make children's gifts look unique and adorable. As Roehm shows, with creativity and care any present can be made an exquisite offering. More than two hundred dazzling photographs provide inspiration, and a clear and detailed how-to section gives readers the step-by-step tools they need to create beautiful gifts. And for those who would like to create stunning packages but have little time, the book also offers wonderfully distinctive-yet simple-gift-bagging ideas. To coordinate with these eye-popping wrappings, there are the author's original theme-party ideas and distinctive table settings. With Carolyne Roehm's advice, anyone can elevate a special occasion to the realm of the unforgettable.

Ive wanted this book for years and finally purchased it for myself. I had hoped there was more technique in it rather than just ideas. Clearly I would spend as much on the outside of the package as what was inside if I wrapped all my gifts this way. Read full review
