Which Napkin Sizes are Best for Holiday Entertaining?

22 Nov

Holiday Napkins at The Stationery StudioIf you are planning on hosting a holiday gathering, cocktail party or dinner, holiday napkins will add a fun and festive touch. But which size should be ordered?  We hear this question time and again so here is a quick review.

For appetizers or cocktails, beverage napkins are the ideal choice and are our most popular size. Beverage napkins measure approximately 5 by 5 inches square and feature precise printing, a magnificent extensive array of designs, both traditional and contemporary styles, and imprints of your choice. Whether your prefer our confetti dot designs, Christmas nutcrackers, holly leaves or jingle bells to elegant sentiments such as Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas, we have a large selection you will love.

For Place Settings or guest powder rooms select the guest towel size.  Guest towels are paper and measure approximately 4.5 by 8 inches and come in many colors and styles. You can select the imprint color of your choice and easily pick from a great selection of styles and designs to match your beverage napkins or select a complimentary pattern or design.

For Buffets or Place Settings we recommend the Dinner-sized napkins, which measure a generous 8 by 8 inches approximately and are available in many styles. Dinner napkins come in a range of designs to match or be complimentary to your beverage napkins from fun confetti dot designs to the more traditional holiday wreaths, Christmas tree designs and more.  Many like to put a pile of dinner size napkins on a buffet for their guests to use and enjoy. Some like to fold them in half and place them at a place setting. Or, they are a nice size to roll and place into a napkin ring. Consider how you will use them when you select the napkin you are ordering and where the imprint will appear.

For Christmas morning, a brunch or for heavy appetizers, we recommend Luncheon napkins which measure approximately 6.5 inches square. You can select your favorite seasonal colors plus we’ll add the design of your choice and your imprint in your selected color. Our luncheon napkins include standard, fun and festive designs.

Napkin Gift SetsFor Hostess Gifts, we are always excited to give a set of beverage napkins.  Also, a nice set of personalized guest towels also make a thoughtful hostess gift.  If you are planning on attending a party, dinner or special event, order a set in advance and send to the hostess to use or bring with you so they can be enjoyed at a future celebration.  We also offer boxed napkin hostess sets which are a fun present.

We offer many printed napkin materials in addition to quality 3-ply napkins we refer to as Luxury Napkins.  Our luxury styles include a thick and elegant Deville, shimmery Masslinn, elegant embossed Carte in white, ivory, gold, silver and copper, thick and wonderful Linen-like and Caspari designs which feature wonderful patterns and colors and classic styles. Our pricing, production time and dedication to perfection with our napkins is impressive and you will love the finished product.

Happy holidays,
