I don't always use napkin rings with my tablescapes, but when I do, I like to make a statement.
The napkin rings above are from Lucullus...
...and were my inspiration for a tablescape I did last year, using both "Monsieur" and "Madame" napkin rings found on One Kings Lane.
Silver napkin rings are highly collectible and I think they look great when mixed and matched.

Like these from Paris Hotel Boutique, which definitely make a statement.
Napkin rings don't have to be sterling silver to make a statement.
Here, I used hand made wooden rings found on Etsy for a rustic tablescape.
Ralph Lauren's table setting used an equestrian style leather napkin ring.
For a tablescape I did last year for Tartan Week, I took a plain pewter napkin ring and glued a tartan ribbon, hoping to replicate a tartanware napkin ring.
They are on my collectible list, but unfortunately are way to expensive for me.
Still, I keep looking for a deal.
It's all in the presentation.
A simple wicker napkin ring can be embellished with a red rose...
...or even a fishing fly!
Don't have a napkin ring? Tie the napkin with twine!
For a tablesetting I did for our book club, I used twine around the written word.

Last, but not least, my newest napkin rings.
Simple, clean, but still making a statement.
And that's the point!
