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.
