Make Your Own Napkins
“As much as I love being able throw out things at the end of the night, I hate wiping my face with a scratchy disposable napkin," shares Berk.

"Instead of using disposable napkins, grab a few yards of linen fabric from your local fabric store and rip it into 20-inch squares. You’ll have napkins for your guests that can get tossed into the washing machine at the end of the night," he says. "They’ll get softer over time, plus you can mix and match the colors to create a palette that works with your décor and party.”
