"The Best Guests Come Bearing Gifts"

by Rachelle Hruska · January 6, 2009

Our "All I want for Christmas" posts were so popular that we have decided to continue the tradition with a new theme.  The hostess with the mostess may often times be difficult to buy for.  That person that has everything yet is still deserving of SOMETHING?  Everyone knows that the best guests are the ones that come bearing gifts.  Today's suggestion:

Chalkboard Napkin Rings.  What a creative way to designate who's who at your dinner table of guests and guests of guests.  The ones at left are from the MoMA store and are pretty pricey.  Click below for information on our DIY version:

Wooden napkin rings ordered here.

Spray Paint Chalkboard from Dick Blick.

The result: not as pretty as the MoMA German ones, but much more attractive for our recessionista guest.

Thank you to my creative sister for the idea!
