  2. Ohhh!! I just realized that I haven’t refreshed my napkins since I got married (ok I am married only 8 years) but I think it is time to do it. Number 8 suits great with my kitchen. Thank you, Melissa, for remind me this!

  3. I do have a drawer full of cloth napkins of all sorts of colors and patterns and use them everyday. When I was a little girl my mom would let me pick out the napkins and napkin rings to set the table with each time we sat down to eat. It is a fond memory and an activity I am passing doen to my girls. I just LOVE using cloth napkins!

  4. These are all so pretty! I especially like 5 and 8. For me a napkins has to have some weight to it, and feel soft–there’s nothing worse than a rough napkin on the face. Kinda like kissing my hubs before he shaves :-)

  5. These are gorgeous, I would love a giant stack of #2 and #6, I think it’s time to refresh my napkin collection! Have a wonderful weekend

  6. I love cloth napkins and have several sets but don’t use them as often as I would like because hubby prefers a “clean” on with each meal. Not sure if am I saving on paper use? or just adding to the use of water when washing them so he has a clean one each meal???

  7. So happy to hear I’m not the only one out there that just LOVES a cloth napkin! I’ve added to my collection for 40 years or so- I began making my own when I was about 10 years old just because they were fun to iron! Imagine that. WHAT was I THINKING??? My friends like to tease me about always using them instead of paper ones when they come for lunch… but I know they appreciate the extra special attention.

  8. Gypsy, you are so not the only one! I make about three sets a year, and a set at our house means 16. Everything else that has to be ironed goes to the laundry, but I do some of my best problem solving ironing napkins.

  9. I have tons of cloth napkins, but rarely use the. Last time a used white linen ones for a ladies luncheon and no one used them. But I love your idea of mix and marching different colors. I’d love the look and Thi k my friends would feel less intimidated.

  10. I use them all the time. Love them!

  11. I love linen tablecloths and napkins. I feel like my guests always have a hard time actually using them and then I have to beg them to use them at dinnertime. But thats the part I love – to serve my guests and make them feel really special. Its part of being an amazing host!
