DIY: Simple Cloth Napkins
Mostly they ask you if you're ready/excited. They want to know how you met/got engaged and then they want to know what 'your' colors are.
We didn't have colors at our wedding. By that, I mean, we had all colors. In retrospect, it probably would have been easier if we had a more tangible theme with colors, but I like all colors (except blue, obviously).
So, my mom and I went to the fabric stores and found 3 different patterns to make napkins with. These became the color for the whole thing.
I loved how it all turned out and it made it so we could be a lot more minimalistic with the rest of the decorations and flowers.
These DIY cloth napkins were so easy and they'd be perfect to spruce up your holiday table this year or you could wrap up some cooking utensils in homemade napkins for a Christmas gift.
DIY CLOTH NAPKINS (makes 6)
1 yard washed, cotton fabric (preferably with the pattern on both sides)
1. Cut your fabric into 18 inch squares (you can make them 16, 18, 20, or 21 inch squares).
7. Trim any loose threads and wash to soften.
