5 Tips & Ideas to use cocktail napkins at your next party

1. Placing cocktail napkins around your house on tables where people may be inclined to set their drinks will help prevent water / drink stains.

2. Adding pretty, coordinating cocktail napkins at the bar is a cheap and easy way to give the bar display a little style. Add one napkin under each bottle to catch drips and add color.

3. Using cocktail napkins instead of linens at your food table will save on laundry when it’s time for clean-up.

4. Add several coordinating cocktail napkin styles around the buffet table to add color and pattern to your table. If you are using china, find napkins with the same color scheme to coordinate.

5. Cocktail napkins make a great giveaway for hostesses, tie a ribbon with an ornament for Christmas or a cocktail cheese knife as a gift to attendees for events like bridal showers and baby showers.
