Suzanne inspired and encourged me in this thread where I first asked around about the practicality of using cloth napkins. The first set I bought were rust and olive colors, dark and perfect for the long winter. My husband also remarked at what a good idea it was. I began considering purchasing a few more because were going through the ones we had so quickly that I had to wash them twice a day. Then I came across this post from Suzanne at the perfect time! I bought a few dozen in bright cheery colors and they add a very nice touch of loveliness to our table. I think they looked equally lovely hanging in the late afternoon sunshine! Thanks Suzanne for the inspiration!
*It would go without saying that the boys will not use a single pink napkin! (and yes, those are baby woolies freshly washed and lanolized!)
