1 napkin 5 ways
When you're having friends or family over to share a meal, it's always nice to make your dining table feel a little special. An easy decor update is to add a little pizzazz to your napkins. Simple tableware with white plates and neutral napkins are the perfect canvas for this project. Using the same napkin, we've put together 5 easy ideas, all made with inexpensive items.
Make it woodsy
If you're in the mood for a beautifully rustic table setting, try tying raffia around a few wooden sticks and secure to the back of each napkin with a knot. To add to this look, you can use wooden sticks as a centrepiece as well. Layer a few stone pebbles at the bottom of a glass vase and nestle some wooden sticks in between.
Add some ribbon
For a whimsical look, loosely tie a piece of velevet ribbon around each napkin. You can opt for a unified look with the same hue for each napkin at the table, or mix and match. This project is ideal if you have scraps of ribbon left over from any DIY project.
To make each of your guests feel special, try adding a monogram to each napkin in lieu of a place card. Using thick paper, cut out the first letter of each of your guests' names. Brush with all-purpose glue or double-sided tape, and cover with fabric or patterned tape. Secure to the napkin with double sided-tape.
Adding a little colour to your table will help make it look lively and joyful. These faux flowers are simply tied with some bright red ribbon and placed casually on top of each napkin.
Add a bow
These oversized store-bought bows will help create a simple but glamourous table. Simply secure one to the centre of each napkin using ribbon or double sided-tape. The tone-on-tone will help give your tableware a chic look.
