Well done Isabel! Does it come in my size?
If you have had a chance to catch the trailer for the new Smurfs movie you may have spied some perfectly wrapped parcels in particularly familiar wraps!
One of my greatest joys in life is making paper flowers. (sad? …but true! ) Although I know I’m not alone…Our trend hunters tell us that Paper Flower Power is everywhere, I have even seen them popping up in table decor and bridal bouquets. I love discovering new ways to craft paper blooms and here is the latest recipe!
We actually had some downtime on Saturday after we finished our booth set-up so we ventured to Chelsea Market by way of the High Line. This was such a treat! The High Line is a walkway built on old train tracks above street level on the West Side. Since it’s sort of a raised public park with a variety of greenery and art installations, it was a wonderful respite from the noisy streets below.
This was my second time taking in the gloriousness that is Chelsea Market. It is my very favorite part of New York City at the moment. The food-lover’s paradise is housed in an old factory and contains all of my favorite things under one roof: several bakeries and restaurants, specialty gift shops for the gourmet enthusiast, and an Anthropologie. The Food Network also calls Chelsea Market home and there are tours offered, but I have yet to partake – it’s on my list of things to do, of course! We all enjoyed our meals at Friedman’s Lunch and then I got my dessert fix right across the way at the Doughnuttery. (The Doughnuttery! Is that not the cutest name?!) I really could spend all day – or maybe even several days – in this place.
Every year the gift wrap girls travel to NYC to help set up The Gift Wrap Company Booth at the National Stationary Show, along with the sales team. With a lot of hard work and planning, it comes together in a great display of all our products. Here are some behind the scenes pictures of our set up. If you are in New York City May 19-22, Please stop by the Javits Center, Booth # 2920 to say hello and see how our booth turned out
