Easy DIY napkin ring alternative

Knotted ribbon napkin ring.

Sure, the polished graphite-look flatware is super-sexy; but check out the stand-in for a napkin ring! (Flatware coming to Target Canada this fall.)

We rarely fuss with napkin rings these days—especially now that the season of al fresco entertaining is upon us. But I came across this easy napkin ring alternative the other day that’s just casual enough to work for a summer table setting.

A single length of grosgrain ribbon, tied around the bundled flatware and knotted, is the very definition of relaxed elegance. The ribbon’s relaxed DIY vibe is a striking juxtaposition to this sophisicated new graphite-look flatware, coming this fall to a Target Canada location near you.
