Aside from the rumple, it was perfectly clean. Along with a birthday cake that looks more & more like the Burning of Atlanta, I have come to appreciate art in more than just a museum setting. Take a moment, sneak if you must, but take a moment to fully appreciate the artwork that goes into party napkins. This might be just the thing to do, if you are terrified to talk about your latest sexually transmitted disease, or your 5th, 6th, or 7th marriage, which may have led you right into a doctor’s office to talk about the aforementioned topic. Or, if religion or politics make you squeamish because you can’t read, or did not read anything at all about those topics, talk with authority about the party napkins.
Your host/hostess will be utterly impressed, and maybe even upstaged. Don’t say a word about having seen them @ Walmart! This is especially important if your party is in Atherton. No, don’t name drop Walmart there! Bad form!
Now, if you are celebrating the new double-wide, that has now been secured to a permanent foundation, you are quite right in bringing up Walmart, and how you wish you could afford to go there…on your way out the door, with total discretion, take the remaining ones from your host/ess–so they won’t have to throw them in the recycle bin. Don’t invite them to your next party, not till you’ve had that wretched head cold that spoiled your party plans & forced you to use up your ill-gotten supply of these beauties.
AND IF YOU REALLY WANT TO SAVE ALL OF YOUR PRETTY NAPKINS–LOOK BELOW!
ONE THING I WOULD ADD, A CLOTH OR EXTENSION OF PAPER TO COVER THE EXPOSED PLASTIC!
