Hosting a gathering can be stress free with a little prep work and the right tools. Gracious entertaining is the goal and we offer a curated collection of home entertaining essentials to keep it simple. Have small bites ready for when guests arrive and offer a beverage along with an inviting place to sit and chat while you finish preparing the main meal. We usually set the table one day before, because you want to enjoy the process and it gives you time to play. Cloth napkins are always a must and we like to have fun in this area. We offer a 22" square linen napkin in 24 colors. The napkin can bring color to any table. Complementing your placemats is an easy way to start, or select a color that speaks to the season or the holiday, or even match the napkin to your dinnerware if there is a color in the pattern. Napkins do not have to stop at the table. They can also be used in the guest bath, where we suggest monogram paper napkins, and don’t forget the bar where you will want to have cocktail napkins. These, too, can be monogrammed or feature witty statements to add to the mood.
