Trend Alert | The Necessity of Napkins
Who would have thought that napkins, something you use to clean your hands and face, would end up being such a staple in your event’s table settings? Napkins, a defining detail for our 2020 event planners, can really change the whole dynamic of the table, so when you are preparing your table settings, choose your napkin color, fabric, and fold carefully.
The napkin is a great place to add a pop of color to brighten up the mood or add an accent color to the entire event. And don’t forget the possibilities of mixing and matching! Two napkin colors, divided between whole tables or each place setting, is a super simple way to establish a color palette throughout the entire event space.
The texture and fabric of a napkin can affect the ambience almost as much as the color. A silk napkin will give the event a classic and elegant feel, while a linen napkin creates more of a rustic woodland vibe. But textures and fabric types can be hard to convey online, so when choosing your napkins, consider coming into one of our three Showrooms, where you have unlimited access to test out different fabrics, colors, and styles of napkins and see how each one will work with your table settings.
From complex knots to simple overhangs, a unique napkin fold ties together the completed look at each table setting. It’s what transforms a piece of fabric into a statement piece on every table. There are endless ways you can fold your napkins, and many online resources and how-to videos. You can also ask any sales representative in any of our three Showrooms, and they will be happy to show you their favorite napkin folds!
