I’m not one of those people who expertly and meticulously wraps all their Christmas presents. I don’t have the patience and I’m too ham-fisted. So what I need is easy ways to do it. Ways that will make it look like I’ve made an effort, even if it took me three minutes flat.
Behold, ten stupidly easy wrapping ideas that not only look awesome but are so simple even I could recreate them.

This is totally my style. Just cut to the chase already!

It might not be the most important thing at the wedding, but there’s no reason why you can’t have a bit of fun with your seating chart. These plans are cute, fun and are sure to inspire you to come up with something unique for your own big day.

It’s not just you that wants to look their best on your wedding day, your best friends will too! So instead of sticking them in some ill-fitting matching strapless monstrosities. why not give them something with a bit more style?!

It’s just a few days until Bonfire night in Britain. On 5th November we ‘celebrate’ Guy Fawkes almost blowing up the Houses of Parliament with fireworks, bonfires and, unusually, by eating piping hot jacket potatoes. I know, it’s weird, but it also pretty fun! It’s perfect time to bundle up warm and go “oooh!” and “aaah!” at pretty lights in the sky.
No doubt about it, companies that organise Fireworks for weddings charge a LOT, but there are plenty of other ways to start your marriage with a whoosh and a bang!
