Botanical Napkins for Holiday Tables

By Kate Riley October 27, 2023

I started prepping for Thanksgiving since I’m hosting this year. I bought new block print napkins to go with a runner I’m reusing from two years ago. I prefer to keep my table setting casual during the holidays, my theory is it helps guests relax. I added ombre tapers to the mix but everything else I’ve owned for years, including the chargers, plates, and flatware.

I don’t believe you have to buy new sets of stoneware or dinnerware for holidays or special occasions. Basic white plates work just fine especially if you jazz them up with a colorful, patterned, or botanical dinner napkin. I’ll be using the printed napkins below to set a table for eight for our Thanksgiving feast.
