It’s all in the Details: Napkins

Sunday, 22 August 2010

Every couple blog spots, we are going to feature some of the details that go into having that wow factor event décor. There are so many things that go together and add to the overall ambiance of a done-up venue, you know everything looks great but you can't quite put your finger on it. Well, here's where we deconstruct the setting to show you how it all comes together.

Today, the details are in the Napkins. One of the easiest ways to dress up your place setting is to add the simple embellishment of a napkin. In terms of décor, you can have them as ornate or as plain as you want, working them into your colour scheme and making the tables pop! Sometimes, the napkins get REALLY dressed, as shown for example in this peacock feathered napkins.
The rich, jewel tone color certainly adds a touch of luxe to any decoration. I can't wait to try out this trend!
Since you might not necessarily be using fabric though as these are rather more expensive, if your caterer is supplying these and therefore taking care of the laundry (don't want to see a fabric napkin after it has 'fought' with palm oil!) then you can certainly do more than just fold into your glasses.

Napkin rings do have a lot of wow factor too.Even  paper serviettes work in decor colours or when printed on and form part of the décor ( in addition to come in very useful to your guests). They make a huge impact even if they are not the first things you notice on the place settings at the tables.

You can see how a little ribbon and a stunning bloom(artificial or real)can completely transform a basic napkin into something special.  To make this concept yours – simply change the colors, change the ribbon and the flower .
Here's a quick tutorial on how to fold napkins in an unusual way

Here's a board of events we've done where the napkins have made a big difference, sometimes subtle sometimes not so subtle.
