social grace

before you present a fine gift to a refined noble, please ensure to enclose the gift in dramatic finery. gently shroud the gift in an ornately printed golden sheet of wrap. gather the ends of the wrap over and cinch to completely conceal the gift from prying eyes. arrange the loose ends of the wrap into a proud burst of a golden peacock's tail. secure the magnificent display with an elaborate jacquard ribbon in gold and blood red. place the brilliantly wrapped gift in a mirrored coffret with the slightest of details. embellish the ensemble with choice blooms gathered with fine taste. and finally, hand over your gift with your sweetest of smiles.
