Flower Napkin Rings for the Perfect Place Setting
With Easter coming this weekend here are 3 simple ways to add some spring to your place settings with these flower napkin rings. All of these flower napkin rings can be made using whichever flowers or greens best suits your decor – you can go vibrant and bold or keep things very simple.
1. The Classic Napkin Ring
This is the only style of the 3 that requires a bit of a tutorial. This napkin ring was made in a similar fashion to the wreaths I shared last week on the blog in this post. Using a 24 guage wire create a small circle that will make the actual napkin ring – about 2-3\u2033 in diameter is recommended. Then, pierce the stem of each flower with a wire so that they can be attached to the napkin ring. Depending on the flower you will have to experiment to find the best way to secure it with wire. For example, with the ranunculus I found that it was easiest the put the wire right through the top of the flower bloom as their stems are too delicate. Once your flowers are attached to the ring, select a ribbon to cover the ring – I used a simple jute yarn. Using a glue gun or a strong glue, attach the ribbon at the top of the ring, below your flowers to completely cover the ring. Wrap the ribbon tightly all the way around and glue again at the end. Ta da!
Supplies (based on this exact ring):
– 24-26 guage wire to create your ring and also attach your flowers
– strong glue
– approx 1\u2032 of ribbon or string (length will vary with ribbon thickness)
– 4 small sprigs of thyme
– 1 ranunculus flower and 1 bud
2. The Simple Napkin Tie
This napkin tie could not be more simple. Select a few stems of flowers that suit your decor. Use the ribbon of your choice to tie a knot around the middle of the stems to securely hold them all together. Place your flowers on top of your neatly folded napkin right in the middle. Wrap the ribbon around the back of the napkin and then back around to the front. Pull tightly to create a bit of a pucker in the middle where the ribbon is – tie in a bow.
Supplies (based on this exact tie):
– 1 flower and 2 small buds of lisianthus
– a bunch of thyme
– 9\u2033 of jute
3. The Place Setting Wreath
This starts out just like number 1. Using your wire create a small ring 2-3\u2033 in diameter. Using a hot glue gun or a strong glue glue on your choice of greens. I used thyme because it is very dense which is what you want for such a small wreath. I also love using herbs decoratively. Place on top of a neatly folded napkin for a simple and elegant place setting.
– 24 guage wire
– glue gun
