I was looking for ideas on the internet one day because I was wanting to figure out how to use cloth napkins with my whole crew and not have to wash them after every meal and also not have to leave them on the table for the whole day since we use our dining room table for more than just meals. I fround a post at http://raisingolives.blogspot.com for names on napkin rings and it gave me this idea. I just used some scrapbooking rub-ons and monogrammed everyone a napkin ring and now we can get out our napkins for each meal and then put the napkin back on the ring and back in the drawer. When we need them for the next meal, we get them out and everybody has their same napkin instead of sharing their "cooties" with somebody else. Yeah! Of course, this will only work if everyone in your house has a different initial, but it works for us.
I feel cute and organized at the same time! It doesn't get much better than that for us mommies. Ha!
