Napkin Rings for Feature Friday

I'm starting a new promotion at the store this week, Feature Friday.

Every Friday I will feature an item I think is an entertaining essential.

And for each sale, you can get a second equal or lessor of the same item

for 50% off!

This week's feature is napkin rings. I posted some of the selection we have at the store.

Not close by to Head House -don't worry you can inquire via comment, email or call

the store at 502.384.4323.

Buy one adorable porcelain puppy and get the next 1/2 off!
Feature Friday will run every Friday to Saturday
at the store.

Napkin rings make a great hostess, teacher or friend gift. But hurry items are usually one of kind

and therefore will sell quickly!

These fast food ornaments will look great

as napkin rings at your next barbeque or pizza night!

A napkin ring can be the finishing touch for your table . . .

Or perk up a boring placesetting . . .

"The napkin ring, sometimes called serviette ring, was originally used to identify the napkins of a household between weekly wash days. The standard napkin ring is a simple ring made from skewers. The figural napkin ring is an American specialty in which the simple napkin ring is part of a small figure or sculpture that may take any shape and show any motive. Napkin rings appear as single items with the name or initials of the owner, notably given as christening presents, or pairs often given as gifts at weddings and silver weddings. In the English speaking countries, numbered sets of 4, 6, 8, 10 or 12 napkin rings are found. Napkin rings are an invention of the European bourgeoisie, first appearing in France about 1800 and soon spreading to all countries in the western world. Most 19th century napkin rings were made of silver or silver plate, but others were made in bone, wood, pearl embroidery, porcelain, glass, and other materials. In the 20th century bakelite and other new materials were used." from Wikipedia
