Recently, Nashville Wraps was honored to partner with HGTV for their Celebrity Holiday Homes’ story. The show brought together some amazing designers to work their magic in the homes of celebrities like Cheryl Burke, Dee Snider, Lisa Lampanelli, BeBe Winans and Haylie Duff.
The designers created traditional and non-traditional themes, including Cheryl’s (Dancing with the Stars) contemporary pink and red winter wonderland and Dee’s (of Twisted Sister fame) rock-star Christmas in shades of turquoise, purple and lime green. Gift wrap and ribbon from Nashville Wraps went to the homes of Nashville gospel singer Bebe Winans and actress Haylie Duff (big sister to Hilary).
For Bebe, part of famed gospel family The Winans, the designer created the gorgeous display of silver gift wrap and hunter green ribbon shown above. She even had the idea to make a collage of family photos and have it printed onto gift wrap for a wonderful personal touch.
Another idea was making “kissing balls” by hot gluing silk flowers onto Styrofoam balls and hanging them with our organza ribbon. Kissing balls have a long tradition that started during the Middle Ages when villagers would wind together twine and evergreen branches into a ball shape. At the center, they would place a clay figure of baby Jesus, then hang then from the ceiling along hallways in castles and homes to render blessings and good luck to all who passed under them. Eventually this tradition evolved into hanging mistletoe. Many designers are now using floral ones for weddings and parties.
As you can see from Haylie Duff’s colorful Christmas tree at right, the designer was going for a modern twist on holiday décor. We love how our gift wrap, gift boxes and ribbon were incorporated in such a playful way.
Thanks to HGTV for inspiring us with such great ideas and allowing us to be a part of your holiday special.
From all of us here at Nashville Wraps, we wish you a Very Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year!
