What CAN I ADD TO MY paper plate/napkin holder?

Seasonal napkins that match the napkin holder really step up the cute factor! Here are some places you can look for unique and fun napkins and plates to go with your DIY holder:

  • Dollar Tree – you can usually find adorable napkins at the Dollar Tree, especially seasonal designs.
  • Craft Store – check out the seasonal section at the craft stores for pretty napkins and plates. It’s always good to look at the end of season to score deep discounts to use for next year.
  • Home Store – if you have a home store like Homegoods, or Tuesday Morning, take a peek in their kitchen section for pretty napkins and plates. You will be surprised what you can find, especially for holidays.
