Khaki Ribbon | Satin & Grosgrain
The first thing I did when I started my event planning and wedding design business (almost 8 yrs. ago - yikes) was buy huge spools of ribbon in every color. Because I purchase it in such large spools, it is so much more cost efficient per yard than buying it at craft stores (typically $1-2/yard). I love having masses of it at my disposal - it has come in handy so many times... lots of creative last minute gifts look great with a beautiful bow.
When I wrap packages, I like to be able to use ribbon generously and to have enough to go around the package twice and make a nice bow. My favorite are classically tied bows that can to be untied with one pull on the streamer... no tugging and double knots.
Grosgrain : I love Grosgrain Ribbon because of the subtle richness and texture. It is the casual elegance of grosgrain that makes it perfect for wrapping gifts and baked goods.
