Cloth Napkins Affordable Enough for the Biggest Feast
Cloth napkins are a non-negotiable for me at the holiday table; leisurely, festive meals and paper napkins just don’t mix, in my opinion. But setting a table for 10 or 12 with cloth napkins can get pricey. When we were planning our Thanksgiving table on a budget, stylist Chelsea mentioned her smart and not-so-secret source for cloth napkins: World Market. Here are two sets of their simple cotton napkins: one with stripes, and one in nearly any color you can imagine.
Orange not your thing? These 20-inch napkins come in 22 colors, from classic white to green to fuchsia.
They are 100 percent cotton, which means they will shrink if you’re not careful; I like to dry cotton napkins for a short amount of time in the dryer to get the wrinkles out, and then spread them flat on the kitchen countertop or dining table to finish drying.
But a set of six for $10 can’t be beat, and it’s always nice to have cloth napkins — they’re a luxury that will last long after the holiday meal is over.
