I love setting a table for dinner. I personally think that the way you present your food is just as important as what your food tastes like. You can serve your guests a mediocre meal with flair and style and pull off an epic dinner party. But you serve fantastic fare with bare-bones presentation and you’ll fall flat on your face.
A huge part of a good place-setting is the napkin and the best way to impress is with a linen napkin. Perhaps it’s my graphic design background but my personal favourites are napkins that feature text. I have seen love letters, sonnets, etiquette tips and I have made some of my own with recipes printed on them. I have pulled together some examples of my favourite printed cloth napkins.
