Not every table for every meal requires special table linens and napkin rings, but whenever special serveware is used it seems to add an air of elegance and shows an attention to detail that can make even an ordinary meal into something really special.
Napkin rings are offered by Excell, Lenox and Oleg Cassini to name just a few, in many beautiful styles, colors and designs and while the original idea may have been to make sure everyone at the table knew which cloth napkin holders belonged to them, these days tables are more likely to use the paper version and the rings are often only used for decoration when an elaborate dinner is set for holidays and other special occasions.
That said, there is truly something magical about sitting down to a meal at a fully dressed and carefully decorated table, and most people take great delight in the small details that denote a special occasion, including a linen tablecloth and metal rings for napkins, because it shows that the host took the extra time required to create a special atmosphere just for them.
Rings to use with cloth napkins are available in a wide variety of patterns and colors and sizes in metal, glass and ceramic from simple and plain to elaborate and rich and are usually sold in sets of four. These rings, such as beaded napkin holders, are often designed to match other serveware that is used on the table for an overall effect; if the dishes and glassware are smooth and shiny, the napkin rings can be too. For a special and festive look, choose a plastic napkin holder in a color that matches the flatware used.
Part of attending a special meal is sitting at a special table. Dress up the table linens for any occasion and delight everyone who attends with metal or glass napkin holders. Browse the nice selection of napkin rings today at Macy’s.
