Classy black & white cloth napkins


I made a new set of 8 cloth napkins.  I told my gentleman suitor to choose four black and white fabrics and a solid color for the other side (the solid was limited to the less expensive, 100% cotton collection at Joann Fabrics).  I had originally been picturing a deep red and was surprised he chose a muted sea foam green.  I asked what he thought of the finished product and he said, “I won’t be embarrassed to use these at a dinner party with friends, unlike those other ones.”  He was talking about the floral napkins I made last summer.  These new ones are much classier.

    WOW. so you must have used your suitorly Christmas coupon to walk thru JoAnn Fabric, to gain such sage advice. He has fabulous taste! and the florals are pretty great too tho, a sort of celebration of good life and beauty to use them. Love the photo, with table, settings and all.
