Add a little “pop” to your dinner or buffet table this 4th of July (or any occassion for that matter!). Simply roll up your flatware in an ironed cloth napkin and tie a bow around it!

  1. Available on 4 or 10 yard rolls at my local craft store, I look for a good quality grosgrain ribbon that best fits the mood of the event or season. I take the hand (feel) and weight of the napkin into account when choosing the width of the ribbon.
  2. Cut ribbon into 24-30 inch lengths.
  3. Roll up utensils in napkin and tie with a bow, snipping the ends at an angle with a pair of sharp scissors.
  4. When all place settings are wrapped and tied, I like to present them in a basket with higher sides so you can really see them!

Enjoy! Love, Nora
