Just before I left for Europe, I received a package from Linen Bee. I have worked with them for years as a sponsor and a paying customer. I’ve worn their dresses to China, Europe, and all over the US.
They are my favorite custom-made linen clothes. So, I’m always excited when I get a package from them!
In this order, I received some shirts and a dress to wear on my trip, but I also received a preview of some new fabrics…
…a smock-style apron, and some napkins.
Isn’t this stack just yummy?
I wore the shirts, dresses, and apron throughout my Europe trip…
I love the weight of these napkins (they are a little lighter than my vintage linen napkins) and the blue and white striped pattern. I do actually use cloth napkins, so it’s nice to have a few more to add to my collection. Most of my napkins are neutral, so these add another option for pattern and color.
I love this mini-stripe and want to order a dress to match! (Not that I need to intentionally match my napkins!)
In a recent tablescape, I folded my napkins into squares and tucked them into a ramekin and I thought that was a nice way to display the napkin and add a little height to the place setting.
When not in use, I bundled my napkins in a piece of twine and store them on a shelf in the kitchen or in the butler’s pantry.
Who else still uses cloth napkins?

They also just launched a new collection of clothing home decor items. You can check out that collection HERE. Having worked with them for several years, I’ve loved watching their business and creativity grow. There are so many beautiful images from their most recent shoot…
