Choosing the Right Polka Dot Napkins for the Occasion

Polka dot napkins can suit any occasion at home or at a picnic. Whether they're paper or cloth, polka dot napkins are fun for birthday parties or for dinner parties. It all depends on how you set your table.

  • For breakfast: Choose polka dot napkins in a bright and cheery color that will make you smile when you see them. This is a great way to start the day. Try a multi-colored polka dot napkin or a brightly colored background napkin like bright yellow with white polka dots.
  • For birthday dinners: Depending on who the birthday is for, try finding birthday napkins in the person's favorite color. Even if you're buying paper polka dot napkins, try matching the polka dot napkin color to their favorite one. If you don't know the person's favorite color, opt for brightly colored polka dot napkins like you would choose for breakfast. You don't want to have depressing napkins at a birthday.
  • If you know the birthday man or woman is very classic, try the timeless black with white polka dots napkins, red with white, or white with black. For children's birthdays, always stick to a fun color or fun print within the polka dots if you don't know what their favorite color is.
  • For dinner parties: If it's a dinner that you would classify as fancier, then opt for more classic shades of polka dot napkins, like black with white polka dots, white with black polka dots, or red with white polka dots. White with black polka dot napkins do get dirty easily, so make sure if you're serving red wine, that you think about that.
  • If it's for a wedding party, then by all means match the polka dots to the wedding colors.

More importantly, have fun when choosing your polka dot napkins. If you like a particular color and it doesn't match these suggestions, then choose your favorite color of course!
