Darlings it’s all in the presentation.
How one presents oneself, ones home, ones offerings. The devil is in the detail.
Kate Hudson was the belle of the ball at the Tiffany party. In its signature colour she outshone even that Paltrow woman who never gets it quite right unless its Tom Ford dressing her.
Mr. Lee ( God love him ) may get it right in the kitchen , poncing up dishes with extravagant serving ware and decadent platters and adding garnishes and drizzles.
If it has lemon in it, show that it has by slicing some or using wedges to garnish. If it contains herbs, use them to finish. Most plates benefit from a flourish of something green.
However, when it comes to presenting gifts the poor chap is clueless . Many a birthday or Christmas has been reduced to eye rolling when looking at the lack lustre effort.
What effort??? No effort!
Why ruin a good gift?
If you are incapable of wrapping, bagging, or tying a bow but it from somewhere that’ll do it for you.
No darling, a Jiffy bag does not count but an Hermes bag does.
The award for best dressed goes to the one on the right.
Shame the one on the left was all geared up with her acceptance speech at the ready.
