As I've been planning this romantic table setting vignette for Valentine's Day, I started looking for all of the elements needed to make the night happen: champagne glasses, napkins, dessert plates, flowers, and candles. I wanted pretty napkin rings for the napkins I found but most of the napkin rings were too formal or too big or too cute or not cute enough. Apparently, I am like the Princess and the Pea of napkin rings! Why bother with napkins when I can do a version of the candle wraps I shared the other day? I decided to make a napkin ring alternative by creating floral napkin wraps for my pretty place settings for this romantic night in.

Napkins are super easy to fold so anyone can use these wraps or a version of them to dress up a table without having to roll napkins or create swans or whatever with them. I also think these napkin wraps would be an elegant way to dress up napkins at a tea party, fancy picnic, or even a wedding dinner! You're gonna be so excited when you see how easily these come together. Seriously, lickety split!

You can use the same flowers to create matching boutonnieres and corsages for the party. Also, check out how I made matching candle wraps to dress up the table even more: How to Make Candle Wraps
