Doctored Decadence

mam for gift wrap blog gave that french soap in miniature claw foot bath tub gift wrap

Sometimes I think about how incredible it must have been to step into a store 100 hundred years ago and be dazzled. Really dazzled! Perfumes in elaborate glass bottles with those little squeeze bulbs and tassels dangling off, silver mirrors and combs, books with gilded pages, everything covered in decoupage. The packaging was almost better than the gift itself. Here are a few gift wrap looks inspired by past grandeur.
