no paper napkins.....ever!


So, I probably sound a lot like Faye Dunaway in Mommie Dearest, truth be told; I am every bit as passionate about my distaste for paper napkins as she is wire hangers. I am partly being thrifty and partly eco-conscious, although the cute factor is not so bad either. I am constantly thinking about how to tread a little more softly on this earth and my stomach flips just thinking about the disposable nation we live in. Disposable plates, cups, napkins, grocery bags, diapers, cutlery, even disposable toilet brushes! What? ? ? Yeah, toilet brushes. whatever. If every little bit helps, count me in... Make yourself some napkins!




You can find handmade napkin tutorials here, here, and here. Have fun, save a tree, live in luxury!

Very pretty- I love cloth napkins too. Got some from my grandma in linen, but yours are way cuter:)

I agree, plus a meal feels more elegant with paper napkins.

Beautiful. I like to use cloth napkins too. A nice touch and yes, more eco-friendly. Smart to have patterned ones too in case of staining.
