Hi All. Hope everyone had a great week. It was really busy getting back into the swing of things after the holidays, but nice to be back into a routine. By now you may have noticed I have a bit of a thing for table settings, and textures in the dining room. One of my favourite things about setting a lovely table is the napkins. I learned years ago that I could never seem to find just the right fabric and pattern for my napkins that complimented the table decor, and matched the different type of setting, so I decided to just make my own.
I use all sorts of fabrics too. From chenille, to upholstery fabric, to cotton. There’s no rules. I use whatever I think will work well. I usually make a set of 8 napkins, and it typically takes 2 meters to make 8. Not too shabby, especially when I keep an eye out for fabric that is under $10/meter. Way cheaper than buying individual napkins at a store, and WAY more fun, because instead of choosing from a selection of just a few, you can literally choose from hundreds of fabrics and patterns at your local fabric store. In Canada, we have Fabricland. Here are some of the napkins I’ve made over the past couple of years.
I love hosting dinners and special occassions in my home, and I know that perhaps it’s crazy to have so many napkins and napkin ring holders, but if it helps create a welcoming a warm atmosphere for friends and family to gather, and enjoy a meal with good company and lots of laughter, I say, it’s all worth it. Happy Dining all!!!!!
See you soon 🙂
