Holiday Prep: Dinner Napkins

By Kate Riley November 13, 2017

My go-to holiday table setting is a basic charger (silver or gold) combined with a white plate, then I like to layer a patterned napkin on top to keep it interesting.

This simple arrangement works every time and makes it easy to use basic plates I already have. Like this inspiration, I add a little greenery to the table along with some candles and call it done.

There’s no need to spend money on themed plates and/or lines for your holiday party, ones you use only once a year. I like to invest in linens that are more versatile and not specific to one single holiday. Cloth napkins that can be repurposed anytime appeal to me more.

Last year I bought napkins made with this lumimarja material, a botanical with gold branches. I didn’t get to use the napkins last year so I plan to this year when I host Thanksgiving. Here are a dozen styles of dinner napkins that would look lovely on your holiday table, and equally nice on any other occasion.

pine bough / block print / adeline
