This Thanksgiving, Go Bold with Napkins
With only a few more days until Thanksgiving, we are starting to collect ideas to make our tablescapes the envy of all of our guests. Last year, we blogged about how to set a Thanksgiving table, but this year, we are focusing on one humble element. This item is basically as necessary as your knife and fork, but we tend to overlook its role in the feast.
What is this under-appreciated member of the Thanksgiving table family? The humble napkin, of course!
Napkins are not only your defence against spending the evening wondering why everyone keeps staring at your chin; they can also add a ton of flare to your Thanksgiving tablescape. Here are three quick ideas for using napkins to jazz up your table.
Napkins are small enough for you to go bold with colour and pattern, so enjoy!
Mix and Match
Who says that all of your napkins need to match? Add some variety to your tablescape by mixing and matching napkins in a similar colour scheme.
Remember your menu
If you’re a cranberry sauce family, keep that in mind and maybe steer clear of light coloured napkins (or get to know your dry cleaner!).
Regardless of your napkin choices, food stains will happen. This is a good thing! It means that people enjoyed your meal. Thankfully, you know a great dry cleaner in Toronto and can turn your napkins from gravy stained to as good as new in a few quick clicks. Schedule your dry cleaning pick up now and we’ll remove all of the remnants of your Thanksgiving dinner from your napkins and tablecloths.
Before we sign off, we wanted to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Parkers!
