Okay, I'll admit it. I use paper napkins even though I'm sure my eco friends mutter about it behind my back. I love freshly laundered linen napkins but there are a wad of them in my laundry room that have been there for a year and a half waiting to be ironed. Polyester napkins don't absorb and I can't get the stains out. I'm sure that it's just as polluting to be laundering all those napkins anyway.
Enough of my whining. Here's a way to dress up your napkins, especially the paper variety. Think upscale picnic; the kind done at Downtown Abbey with all of those servants (if only).
