Another easy addition to your wedding table is fun napkins. Whether you choose to rent special tablecloths to match or to combine interesting napkins with the basic white linens, they can easily add a burst of color to your reception. Select napkins that tie in with your centerpieces and other wedding details in some way. Let is say that the bride has chosen to fill the vases of her centerpieces with faux pearls to coordinate with the style of her pearl tin cup necklace; napkins delicately beaded with seed pearls would be gorgeous. Or perhaps you are trying to match not your pearl tin cup necklace, but the fabulous hot pink of your roses. Napkins in the same hue would be a lovely accessory. If your primary wedding color is a bit too bold for napkins, look for a pattern which has that color mixed with another.
Prior to weaving and spinning, the women would color the flax. Bleaching the fine Swedish table linens was difficult, as many of the dyes were not colorfast. Some of the natural dyes that were utilized were from natural findings leaves, lichens, moss, and bark. In the rare occasions when other colors were requested, they could buy colorings--logwood, gambier, indigo, and Farnock (from a tree).
Then consider the design and color. For the most part that is a very personal choice. However, the more intricate the design, the more colors used in the design, the more carefully you need to consider the colors in the room and the design of the place settings and the flatware in order insure they blend well. Be certain to ask about the dyes used in the design to insure the color will last.
