Holiday Cleanup: Repurposed Wrapping Paper

It’s official – the holidays are over. And if you’re anything like me, there’s a sea of crinkled-up wrapping paper left on your living room floor. But this year, instead of throwing it all out, I’m taking a cue from craft guru Martha Stewart and putting all that leftover paper to good use.

1. For post-holiday dinner parties, serve cocktails on a drink tray lined with leftover metallic paper.
2. Resolving to get organized for the New Year? Make it that much easier with these decorative box labels made from recycled wrapping paper.
3. Keep your place in all those books you were gifted with a homemade bookmark made of wrapping paper.
4. The best way to say thanks for that oh-so-sweet gift? A card made from the wrapping paper it came in.

A Peek at the Rue Living Holiday Event

It’s a given – holidays are about the home: Gathering around the (gorgeously set) table to share a meal. Opening gifts fireside, against a backdrop of ornaments and wintery accents. And no one knows this better than our expert Rue Living team, helmed by our savvy Home Editorial Director, Eddie Ross.

So this Wednesday we hosted a home-centric event in a stunning SoHo loft to preview the holiday home items that will be available in the Rue Boutiques this season. The guest list? A bevy or editors and design bloggers – from Lucky editor Jane (below) to others from the likes of InStyle, House BeautifulCountry Living, Martha Stewart magazines, Glamour, Bridesand more. Below, peep at some of the event’s highlights:

Eddie (above) curated a beautiful NYE table featuring products that will be sold on Rue throughout the holiday season.

The wine sponsor, Wolffer, served delicious white and red, and a signature holiday cocktail – sparkling wine with a splash of pear and cranberry, finished with a rosemary sprig.

The Rue Living Christmas trees were all gloriously lit up and decorated for the editors to preview.

Cloud Catering & Events served apps like tuna tartare and short rib mini quesadillas.

Everyone left (oh-so happily) with a special holiday-themed gift from Rue Living.

Chitter Chatter

Check Out: A sneak peek at our girl crush Vicky Beckham’s stunning photos with Karl Lagerfeld for French ELLE. And yes, that is the late, great Coco Chanel’s home.

Know: Sally Singer is gainfully employed once again, returning to her old stomping grounds, Vogue, as the creative director of digital.

Look: Away if you have a weak stomach – this post isn’t for you. InStyle reports that Martha Stewart paints her Louboutin soles black. We repeat: BLACK. Martha, you may be the queen of crafts, but this is just unacceptable.

Watch: An adorable Mila Kunis in this 1993 Lisa Frank commercial. The former Dior spokesmodel sure has come a long way (although we do love that hat).
