Personalized Napkins: How Many Should I Order?

17 May

Personalized napkins add the perfect touch to any celebration you are having.  From weddings, bridal showers, baby showers to graduations and birthdays, personalized napkins are something your guests will remember.

Many of our customers ask how many napkins they should order for their special events, and we’ve put together a napkin ordering guideline to help you plan for all of your special events.

Napkin Ordering Guideline

Order 3-4 beverage napkins per guest For Beverage and Appetizers. Typically there will be a formal cloth napkin used for the meal.

Plus

-For multiple Bars and/or multiple Appetizer Stations, add 1-2 napkins per guest.

-For a Sweet Table, order 1-2 beverage napkins or luncheon napkins per guest.

-For a Midnight Snack, order 1-2 beverage napkins or luncheon napkins per guest.

-For a Photo Session, order 1-2 beverage or luncheon napkins per wedding party guest for wine, cheese and light appetizers.

Order 2-3 beverage napkins per guest for beverages and appetizers.

Wedding Inspiration: Mint & Purple

29 Mar

 

Our latest wedding inspiration board is all about mint and purple.  This combination just screams (maybe whispers?) Spring and Summer weddings.  This color combination is so fresh and pretty and would be perfect for an outdoor wedding.  For flowers, you could use lilacs which would smell heavenly.  Some other flower choices would be vintage purple mini calla lilies, lavender hyacinth, lavender gem tulips and english lavender.  My flower picks are from FiftyFlowers.com.

Get inspired by our picks:

Celery wedding union engagement invitations, happily ever after napkins, leather cuff bracelet with monogram disk, purple little leaves thank you note cards, script monogram with text linen like guest towels, coronation scroll twisted handled bags, mint vintage wreath save the date cards, mint love and thanks note cards, purple endearing love photo save the date cards, initial scroll hanging gift tags.
