Cloth Napkins

One of the best things I have done was 
switch to Cloth Napkins.

The kids were easily using up 2-3 paper napkins at meals, 
although I have to admit I was too!

I found some cloth napkins at a thrift store for 50 cents each 
but when they rang up at the counter they were half off!!

I called the kids to breakfast yesterday and was greeted by this!
DOS' flowers she picked at her cousin's football game
 (DOS' chore at meal time is to set out the napkins)

It was such a beautiful site!

Enjoying the table set every day!

I try to make sure our meals together are not just a quick eat and go,
so we can actually savor the company and the food.

Bless us, O Lord, 
and these gifts, 
which we are about to receive 
from Thy bounty, 
through Christ our Lord.

Don't you love when they start to model what you've been teaching? Thanks for sharing.

Just wondering if you have any tips on getting stains out of cloth napkins. Or do you have a "good" set for company, and an "everyday set" that your family uses? I can never seem to keep mine nice looking for very long!

How neat! You know I just bought some cloth napkins at a yard sale this past weekend for the very same reason--my two year old uses paper napkins a little too much. The flowers and the cloth napkins make dining so much more elegant, don't you think? Love it. Thanks for sharing.

Jacinda, I have no tips for stain removal. The white napkins are cleaning up great.

An extra set for company...No. If I have to put out stain-free napkins for guests then they probably shouldn't be eating at my house. LOL!
