Who is Alice?

We sat down with Alice, the star donkey of the Little Branch x Emma Blomfield collection over the weekend and asked a few questions. 
 
Born: A lady never reveals her age… alright, alright… I will be celebrating my 17th birthday this year. Which means that I would be 51 years old if I were a human. 
 
Parents: I was adopted at a young age and never got to know my birth parents, however I’m very happy with my adoptive family and don’t plan to track down my birth parents anytime soon. 
 
Owner: Interior stylist and author, Emma Blomfield. 
 
Residence: I live in a beautiful country property in the Lower Hunter Valley of New South Wales. 
 
Dream Vet: Dr Chris Brown (you know the Bondi Vet). Hee Haw!! The girls (Emma & Penny) and I watch him all the time. If he ever needs a nice Ass on the show, I’m all his! 
 
Favourite Flower: Purple Amaranth
 
Ideal cheeseboard selection for a Saturday afternoon: Washed rind brie, quince paste, freeze dried raspberries and pickles washed down with a Crisp Riesling.  
 
Summer or Winter: My winter coat is much more fetching than my shorter summer coat so I’d have to go with winter. It allows me to do more with my fringe too. 
 
Favourite piece from the Little Branch x Emma Blomfield collection: Seriously?! There’s no question my fabulous ears on the gift card is the best product in the range. I heard my ears will be an art print soon too!
 
Must have item: An iPhone 7, for taking selfies with my flower crowns. Der…
 
Last purchase: The Donkey Basket from Olli Ella – to house all the fabulous flowers I pick from the garden.

FIVE TIPS TO MASTER YOUR GIFT WRAPPING

Step One

Choose a hard surface, like a table top to wrap your gift. Wrapping on carpet will cause wrinkles and it’s a little bit more difficult.

Step Two

Choose a colour theme to ensure your wrapping paper, ribbon and card all compliment each other. If you’ve chosen a neutral wrapping paper then you could work with a more textured twine or metallic ribbon. If you’ve chosen a bright and vibrant wrapping paper, then you may choose to stick with a block colour ribbon and a simple card design.

Step Three

Cut the right size piece of paper. This sounds simple but even a pro can rush and cut the wrong size piece of paper. Centre your gift first and then check that it’s the right size before cutting. If you need an extra guide you can mark your cutting point with a pencil on the inside of the paper.

Step Four

When folding the ends of the wrapping paper on either side of the present, create creases at the corner seams to make folding them down easier. If you struggle with folding, try watching this easy tutorial – watch now.

Step Five

Now it’s the fun part! Wrap your twine or ribbon around the gift to measure it before cutting. Then tie the bow and voila! If you want to add a special touch, try heading into the garden and adding some fresh flowers or greenery that match your colour theme.
