I love having friends who are crafty (don’t worry, I love those of you who aren’t as well), especially when they want to share their fun projects with us. My good friend Maaike was hosting a dinner party for her husband’s 40th birthday last week and decided to make her own napkins. Playing off the design of EmersonMade’s EAT napkins, Maaike created her own using some old IKEA draperies, a stencil, and a fabric pen.
And voila! How simple is that? These would be fun to do with people’s names or initials as well. Can we also just take a look at how awesome the combination of burlap, silver, and glass look together. I love the mix of rustic and refinery.
Oh, and I can’t skip showing you how the whole table came out. I just love the stack of various sized books mixed with silver candlesticks and simple flowers. It’s manly but elegant at the same time. And with the rustic linens and industrial chairs, the overall look just really came together as cool and casual while still being simply lovely.
