    • The Art of Gift Wrapping with Ashley L.

      Online,

      The holiday season is in full swing! Since it has been hard this year to gather with our family and friends, why not send them a thoughtful gift that's perfectly wrapped?! We are teaching you how to beautifully wrap gifts for the ones you love. *Registration required for Zoom link. Link will be sent 24-48 hours before event.* Materials List: Wrapping Paper (choose fun, colorful and shiny paper...brown paper bag works nicely too) Ribbon (wide and thin) Twine Charms/Ornaments (optional) Unused fuzzy socks (optional) Scissors Tape Any gifts you want to wrap (bring those awkward shaped gifts that are hard to wrap!) Ashley Lorquet, a Haitian American Sales and Marketing Executive and business owner by day, and a self proclaimed North American elf by night. She truly loves holiday gift wrapping. It is her favorite part of the holiday season (next to tree trimming). She believes the presentation is just as important as the gifts themselves, and in fact, a thoughtfully wrapped gift is just a bonus hug from your gifter. *Registration required for Zoom link*
