It’s been a while since I have had a party at my house (since the Super Bowl to be exact)…and I always start to get antsy to do some entertaining when I haven’t had a party in a while. So when I realized that my friend’s wedding anniversary was coming up in August, I decided it was the perfect excuse!
Since it is an anniversary party, I’m planning for a more formal event than I normally have…which means using real tablecloths, chair covers, plates, cutlery, napkins, and napkin rings.
The main “issue” is my friend is a popular person…there are over 40 people coming to this party. Okay, so the problem isn’t that she’s popular. The issue really is that I don’t have formal sit-down dinners very often…so while I can come up with most of the tableware that I need (I always mix and match), I don’t own that many napkin rings!
While I was looking around for party supplies on amazon.com, I happened to see these sparkle napkin rings* which aren’t very expensive and add some shine to the table.
Then I noticed that they aren’t very wide (a little more than 1″ across) and that they are made of rhinestone ribbon*. I just happen to already own rhinestone ribbon (it’s great for a lot of different party decorations!)…so I decided to make my own. And the bonus is I can make them the width that I want and in the colors that I want.
