Although napkins are an essential element on any table, very few give them the importance they deserve. You prepare an exquisite dish for your guests, you strive for unbeatable presentation, but you offer them a basic napkin; does that sound familiar? We’ve all made that mistake at one time or another.
Besides functionality, cotton napkins offer the touch your table needs: colour, warmth, freshness, formality… depending on the occasion and the atmosphere we want to create. Today we’re going to give you some tips to surprise your guests by offering them the most suitable cotton napkins and placemats for each occasion.
MY DRAP dress your table for every occasion
First of all, we want to remind you of the importance of choosing cotton napkins over paper ones. The former is a much more environmentally-friendly option (are sustainably produced and reusable), they offer greater absorption, last longer and offer a much more pleasant sensation when used.
Another of the most important advantages of cotton napkins is that they are much more versatile since there are countless designs, models and sizes on the market. This allows us to choose the most appropriate collections for each meeting or type of lunch, for the ambience we want to create or the sensation that the table is to convey.
Choose the Casual Food collection for an informal event
There is no special occasion, you simply want to invite your closest friends to have a good time. For these occasions, placemats are optional but make sure your table conveys warmth and friendliness by using cotton napkins with special motifs. If you are in the summer season, you can’t miss the Tea Flowers collections and Picnic Gingham Red, which is ideal for lending a rustic touch to gatherings in the outdoor areas of your home. Another of the models in this collection noteworthy for presenting such a modern design is Newspaper, which recalls gastropub tablecloths.
Also, the Casual Food collection, it’s ideal for afternoon snacks and breakfasts due to the size of its cotton napkins (20 x 20 cm) and coasters (11 x 11 cm).
You have to organise a formal meeting
You’ve decided to have a business lunch in a quiet place and you offer to organise everything. Take a look at our Formal Food collection, which consists of cotton napkins and placemat sets in a wide variety of designs. Warm (Veggie) or cool (Seafood) colours, modern patterns (Animal Print) or classics (White Plaid), all in perfect simplicity and harmony.
Don’t forget to use placemats at these types of events, since, in general, the people involved won’t know each other particularly well. One point in favour of this collection is that the size of its cotton napkins is quite large, which makes them suitable for formal meetings and meals with several courses.
