Brown Paper Packages Tied up with Strings :: Stylish Notes on a Simple, Slow Christmas

via Lant i Norregard

Nothing says simple like brown paper packages tied up with strings... They're beautiful and elegant. Dress up your packages with twine or a large festive bow... Add some seasonal vegetation, an ornament, a candy cane, some stamps, washi tape, or splattered paint or stamp it with images or simple polka dots from a pencil's eraser. These packages, you will find may be simple indeed, but they are also nothing less than spectacular!

I hope this inspired your cold Monday morning!
How ready for Christmas are you? Do you have your tree? Is it decorated? Is your shopping all taken care of? We still have a ways to go here at The Entertaining House... but we're making progress!

I love using plain white or brown wrapping paper and have for years. It's so fun seeing all the creative ways people have dressed them up! I have gotten wonderful ideas on Pinterest! I hope you and the kids have a lovely Christmas!

I love this inspiration!! My tree is up but I've done no shopping yet. And just writing that sentence strikes terror to my heart. Must get going. Have a great day!

So low key Christmas......everyone will be gone!

Have used the brown paper wrapping, the Newspaper cartoon section,
Chinese newspaper with paper fans on top, and this year I used Easel paper with Red and white string.... easy and looks good.

Love The Entertaining House.
