A Spin on Napkin Rings!

I came across some napkin rings on a clearence rack a while back and just knew that I would think of something to do with them when my creative light bulb went off again. Well, after attending, and executing different weddings, birthday parties, corporate thing that is not often seen is a napkin ring. For several of the weddings coming up this spring and summer, this is something we have decided to use to help add color and a little more character to the table decor. This is an easy D.I.Y. project and depending on where you purchase the actual rings, these are budget friendly.
The mustard yellow napkin rings are made from wool felt and required nothing more than sissors and a hot glue gun. It will be fun for you go shopping for exactly what catches your eye! Consider adding a fun print like the blue and brown polk-a-dots above. 
What if you used the same color palette but had different designs for each napkin ring? This will add an aray of character to your tables and give your guests something to chat about while waiting for dinner. If you do a seating chart, you could put a tag on each napkin ring with your guests' name on it as shown below.
Wine corks are one of my most favorite ideas for napkin ring holders. Unique and very personal.
I enjoyed a little praise and worship while busting out a fun, personalized decor piece for a couple of my clients! Have fun!

Mac and Cheese Cups

by Emily

"When I first graduated from college, and was living in a dreary little apartment, mac and cheese was one of my few specialties. Granted it was straight from a box, but it was one of those meals that made me feel like I was home. I shared a gussied up truffle version a couple of years back (here), and since the Academy Awards are just days away, I thought I’d make it more party-friendly. I followed this recipe and found the bite-sized portions to be even more appealing, and were just as good served hot as they were room temperature." Check out Emily's blog for other awesome ideas!
