Over the holidays Ellen Silverman gave a dinner party for 14 and wanted a special napkin that guests could take away with them to remember the event. She found some inexpensive but wonderfully stylish big red striped cotton dish towels that a friend machine-embroidered with a pretty design. They were in perfect keeping with the wonderful bistro-ish meal Ellen made featuring a pot au feu. And, at 18-inch-by-28-inches, they are wonderfully ample, giving you that “tucked in” feeling when you place them across your lap at table.The blue striped ones are also swell.
At less than $3.50 each, they are a bargain to use as napkin and/or dish towel or…And a stack of 8 or 10 would make a great gift. (Though more expensive, the quality is WAY better than the Ikea ones we know so well.)
