Colorful Oversized Napkins
Oversize napkins are perfect for buffets or outdoor dining. These are a cinch to make from scraps of pretty and colorful printed fabrics. You’ll get the look you want for pennies and a few minutes of your time.
Cut each square into pieces measuring twenty-two to twenty-three inches. Fold under Vs inch of the raw edges and press. Again fold back Vs inch and press. Stitch along hemline by hand or machine. Then fold and roll up each napkin and tie with ribbon, yarn, or raffia. Then fill a basket with the rolled napkins placed on end. They create a practical and pretty addition to your table.
A friend from Sweden says they often decorate a table with crushed stones or pieces of crystal. She also suggests using marbles or sea glass scattered over the table. Then place votive candles in glass containers here and there, and the light will glint off the glass.
Quick and Easy Tabletop Decor
Sprinkle a bagful of confetti in bright primary colors (orange and chartreuse perhaps) or pastels over the tabletop before adding the plates and silverware. I like to scatter shells around and arrange my votive candles in large clamshells. For a summery party, set a table with something orange to see how you like the color. A tablecloth might be nice with chartreuse napkins and orange zinnias as a centerpiece. Or scoop out the fruit from half an orange, lemon, or grapefruit and use the cups to hold votives.
