Just wanted to share this idea with you. I found these incredibly inexpensive dishtowels at Ikea, but I'm sure you can find something similar at your local dollar-ish store.
I'm pretty rabid about using cloth napkins. I'd love to say it's an environment thing--which it sort of is/was way back when I started, but now it's just because I love having them on the table. Everyone thinks a special event when you use cloth napkins
So, when Kendall and I made a mad dash through Ikea after the March market and I spotted these, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them . . . use them as napkins. I brought them back to Clarksville and had them embroidered with the numbers 1 - 20. Not only does it look kinda cool, but our guests will be able to relocate their napkin
after returning to the buffet for seconds.
The best part is their generous, lap-covering size!
We're moving into those outdoor entertaining months. Do you have any al fresco dining traditions or ideas you'd like to share?
Thanks for your indulgence.
