It's a Wrap
Written by Betsy A. Eno
Create a show-stopping centerpiece or bring a beautifully wrapped bottle of your favorite bubbly to your next festive gathering! We have selected some simple, yet elegant designs that take just a few minutes to create, but leave a lasting impression.
Create a beautifully festive centerpiece by placing a bottle of champagne inside a red fabric bag and tying it together with a ribbon. Attach a decorative bow over the ribbon and set the bottle inside a poinsettia candle ring. For the finishing touch, curl a piece of gold ribbon and place it on top of the flowers.
A roll of satin ribbon is all you need to add the “wow” factor to this bottle of wine. Start by holding one end of the ribbon against the shoulder of the bottle. Bring the ribbon down the side, underneath the bottom, up the other side and over the top. Repeat until the bottom of the bottle is completely covered. Then change directions, wrapping the ribbon in a horizontal motion and finishing at the neck of the bottle. End by making a four- or five-loop bow to create a stunning finish.
Present a simple, organic gift by wrapping a bottle of wine in a piece of burlap. Lay the bottle on top of the burlap. Pull up one side and hold it to the bottle as you roll. Cut the material one inch wider so it overlaps. Secure with hot glue or use stick-on Velcro®. Finish by wrapping a piece of silk greenery around the top.
Add a touch of elegance and sophistication to a bottle of champagne by attaching an orchid to it. Wrap a ribbon around the neck of the bottle two or three times, carefully slip the stem of the flower underneath a piece of the ribbon, and tie in the back of the bottle. Your champagne is ready to be displayed or presented as a beautiful gift.
Wrap a scarf around a bottle of wine and tie it around the neck. Then add a brooch, an ornament, baubles or bells to cover the knot and voila! You have just created three gifts in one, which the recipient is sure to treasure.
It's in the Bag!
Wrap your gift in elegant tissue paper and place it inside a sheer bag. Secure the tissue paper and the bag by tying a ribbon around the neck of the bottle, and finish with a bow.
Flowers & Ribbons
For a quick and easy way to decorate and display a bottle of champagne at your next party, tie some curly ribbon around the neck of the bottle and place fresh or silk flowers around the bottom. To showcase more than one bottle, group them together, elevating each one at different heights to make a dramatic statement.
Turn your bottle of bubbly into a fizzy fashion statement by slipping it into a velvety wine bag. Add a sequined, jeweled or feathery ponytail wrap, and you have a bottle fashionista!
Creative centerpieces, memorable gifts and laughter with loved ones are all part of what makes the holiday season so enjoyable.
