New Blue Christmas Tree Napkins

phonegirlDecember 3, 2010

I loved Kathleen's napkins last year and told DD. I was thrilled when she showed up with this set for me. So I set a new table tonight so I could use them. I plan on going shopping tomorrow night and Sat. so know there won't be much play time this weekend.

I used my set of Susan Winget as the top plates. I love her dishes.

Added my Dillards santa. It's snowing here again so he may be the only one in bremuda shorts right now!

One of my F & F snowman plates.

Closeup of my napkins. I got company right after I started this table and didn't get my napkins placed before taking pictures.

Put silver ornies in my Princess House Crystal Tree for the centerpiece.

Nothing fancy but I love putting together new tables. Hope your ready for another one.

Very nice! Did you have to fold and iron the napkins yourself? I love the size of the center piece of the material...it's too big for a placemat and too small for a table topper. lol. What is it? I'd like to find something that size for my table.

punk...I love the place settings you used here...am a fan of that combo of aqua blue with the dark blue like on the napkins...those are so cute...I don't recall seeing kathleen's. I have 1 of those Santa plates (w/cker'd border)...so detailed, beautiful! Love how you stacked the plates in each setting & the colors.

Your centerpc is too cute with that bermuda clad Santa! The tree filled with ornies, candlelight & Christmas
sign & snowman plate work so well tog on that linen that matches your napkins. Enjoy your shopping trip...tis the season! Jeanne S.

The whole table is darling, but I love the napkins. I am putting them on my to do list. I think I have the instructions somewhere. I too love that aqua and blue combonation, it looks great with the silver.

Lovely colors on those napkins. That fold is so cute, I remember it from last year. The crystal tree makes a great centerpiece and of course, I like your Christmas plates. At first, I thought the cloth in the middle was another napkin, but it does look larger than a napkin. Sure makes a nice way to tie everything together. You did good,it's very pretty.

Oakley, the napkins came folded and pressed. The center piece is 27.5". It's a square with each corner cut off to make this shape. Do you sew? If so I'm sure you could make one.

Rafor, as a matter of fact I do have the directions. Kathleen was sweet enough to include directions for us too. The napkins are a circle cut in half. You will have to cut and paste this. http://sandyquilts.blogspot.com/2008/12/tutorial-for-christmas-napkins.html

Jeanne, glad you like these colors. I did a little tweaking. I forgot the placemats so added them and shot a few more pics.

Frou, I hope you get some of these napkins made. I don't remember how to make a direct link but hope you can use this url if you can't find your instructions. Mine have one more fold than the pattern.

Luvs, The center is double material with padding in between so would be to heavy for a napkin.

Here's a close up of the plates and placemats I added.

Thanks for all your comments. DS is going shopping with us so we are waiting for him and then it's off a shopping we will go!

Lovely combination Punk...I too like the blue w/silver & white..perfect for your plates and those pretty napkins.
I remember Kathleen giving us a 'how to' on making those napkins.
It's nice that your DD 'listens to what you say about likeing something..and remembers to get it too' ! lol

The napkins are really neat, love how they are folded.
Your "Margaritaville Santa" is delightful, LOL. And the Christmas plates.
I know I've said it before, but your DD is so special. She really listens to what you like/want and gets great stuff for you.

hugs, Karen

Jane, thanks so much and wouldn't want to be w/o DD ever. She is going to do some more Christmas shopping next week for me.

Marylee, I agree sometimes we need a color change and this is one of those. I've always like the color blue. It was a little difficult to decide what would go with those plates and napkins. I don't have as big of a selection as alot of the ladies on here but I'm giving it my best shot.haha

I didn't find evrything I wanted but plan on going online tomorrow and ordering some of the things I didn't find. Thanks for the comments.

Karen, the napkins do have an extra fold and I'm so glad I didn't have to press them myself. Maybe I shouldn't let anyone use them and they will stay nice.

Glad you liked the "Margaritaville Santa" and plates on this table. That DD is so amazing and I can always count on her. She does so much for everyone.

Late getting here due to the party preps last week. The napkins came out great! I had such good intentions of making more of them for this year, but it didn't happen.
The table is adorable, Punk!
