Here's an easy (and environmentally friendly!) way to make your table festive - embellished cloth napkins.
- Cloth napkins
- Iron-on printer transfer sheets
- Fun font (there are lots of great free downloads, such as here, here, and here).
Follow the directions on your sheets for ironing on, and you're done!
All you need to do is design a little phrase/word image with your font - I went with "merry christmas to all"; but you could do any holiday-related words (peace, love, joy, happy holidays, etc.). Then duplicate so that you have one for each napkin, and print. (I practiced printing on regular paper first to make sure I liked the size/color before using up my special iron on sheets.)fonts from here
I have all white dishes, so I love to put colored/seasonal serving dishes, placemats, and napkins with them. Here's my holiday table so far:
The napkins are from Target; the 4-packs were on sale for about $6. And the print/iron on sheets are from Michael's, also $6ish I think, but less with a 40% off coupon, of course. These could be a fun little gift, maybe for a hostess.
