Wrapped Up

Hello and Happy Friday!

I for one am very happy that we have reached the weekend! I'm coming off of a very busy week and I don't know about you but I'm just about ready for a drink. This is a very easy crowd pleasing drink that you can throw together for a twist on a classic.

The Holiday Cocktail

-1 1/2 oz Vodka

-As much Cranberry Juice as you want

-Top with Ginger Ale

-Garnish with mint, lime, or rosemary (my fav!)

As I've stated before this is the first Christmas in about three years that I'm able to actually enjoy it. So I am soaking in all things Christmas! I've wanted to do this post for YEARS but never had time. Today I am sharing how to make the perfect bow. I've always been completely obsessed with wrapping. It has always been a favorite things to do around this time of year. Having worked in retail one thing I picked up was bow perfection. There might be eight steps but once you get the hang of it, this will be your very fast go to bow!

Step One:

Wrap your gifts and tie your ribbon around the box in a knot.

Step 2:

Choose your colors and use as many as you want! It works with one or five.

Step 3:

Fold the ribbon in half. This is where you decide how big you want it to be (this is one side of your bow).

Step 4:

Do the same to the other side.

Step 5:

Go back and forth as many times as you'd like. Just remember the more you do the bigger your bow will get.

Step 6:

Directly in the middle make two small cuts on both sides. Make sure you don't cut all the way. The middle of the cuts will get tied.

Step 7:

Right where you made the cuts, take your ribbon that is already around your box and make a knot to secure your bow.

Step 8:

Simply fluff and pull apart the loops of the ribbon.

Tada! You're done!

Have a great weekend! I've got some wrapping to do that's for sure! Cheers!
