Dressing Up Plasticware

Plasticware at a casual party is so much easier than silverware. Who wants to worry about having to wash all of those forks… Dressing up the plasticware can make all the difference! I made these plasticware and napkin wraps for my sister-in-laws baby shower. They dressed up the plasticware and fit perfectly into a MacKenzie Child’s dish.

Directions

Cut a piece of fabric, one inch wide and 16 inches long. The length and width depends on the size of the bow that you want. I played around with different sizes until I found the one that I liked.

Lay the fork on top of the knife and place the plasticware on the end of the napkin that has all of the loose ends; make sure to also have the folded, closed part, of the napkin at the top.
