Looking for a cheap yet pretty way to style your dinner table? Think like a restaurant, and use dish towels as napkins!

While Faith first shared this tip a few years ago, the folks at Turntable Kitchen reminded us of it again in a recent post. The TEKLA dish towels from IKEA are super inexpensive ($0.49 a towel) so you can buy a few dozen at a time. Roll ’em up and tie with a leather string, like Turntable Kitchen did in the photo above, or a piece of twine. It’s a little French country for your table.
