Table Dressing

Table Dressing

Add instant personality to a place setting with creative napkin rings. Using basic white dinner napkins you already have, this technique is affordable and easy to customize for any occasion. Solid fabric napkins can be bought in bulk at home stores and create the perfect canvas for embellishments. In addition to a simple rolled napkin, try pinching in the center or folding into a basic rectangle. Possibilities abound with basic household items, purchases from a craft store, items from your closet—the list goes on and on. Use remnant fabric to tie a bow, twist a knot, or loop around the center. We went with a bold graphic print. Try adding lace, ribbon, or other sewing supplies for a layered look. Fashion accessories make festive napkin rings. Wrapping costume jewelry, bracelets, and cuffs around basic napkins can add sparkle, color, and texture to your table. Hair accessories help achieve a specific look, such as a bold flower, whether glittery or solid. This wrap is also a great way to incorporate a party favor, allow- ing guests to take home the accessory. Paper products such as card stock and scrapbook paper are easy ways to customize and add graphics and color to the place setting. Here we clipped a small card to a curtain clip and looped another piece to create a simple cuff. Embellish by gluing buttons to the paper, writing names for place cards, or wrap- ping ribbon and yarn around the paper.
