bundle of joy

here's a simple gift idea for a new baby: fold cutesy pieces of baby garments into lovely rolls and tie them neatly with soft satin ribbons finished with bowknots. arrange them in a simple bouquet wrapped with a piece of gossamer tissue paper. place the bouquet in a birch basket lined with another piece of tissue paper topped with a cushion of loose raffia. for sustenance, tuck in your favorite choices of fruits around the bouquet and finally, for drama, lavish your creation with abundant fresh blooms in your favorite colors.
