Cloth napkins are always nice to have at the table, but are they really practical?. I don’t mind washing cloth napkins, but I do HATE ironing them. If I had cloth napkins that did not need ironing then I would be convinced that they are required at all my parties. The most important thing about making your own cloth napkins is going to be choosing the fabric color. You need a color that you can utilize again and again in different themes or table settings. I love the idea of having white but seriously how practical is white? Will your guest know not to throw them away? What do you think? Is having cloth napkins at a BBQ or buffet dinner just that little bit too snootty? Make your Own Here.
