Head to The Sweetest Occasion blog to discover a wonderful diy for creating your own designs on fabric napkins.

Simply with fabric pens, you can create great modern designs and patterns – allowing your napkins to be suited to the occasion or colour theme.

Colours can allow association with different festivities – and text or wording can make the napkins personalised for a table setting or appropriate for an event.

Simple, stylish and perfectly on trend, Curby have created the nicest, easiest little DIY to make a great scandi table cloth.

The simple cross design in black and white is minimal and perfect for monochrome lovers but could just as easily be translated using other colours to suit your choice.

And the finished printed fabric doesn’t necessarily have to be a table cloth but could be turned into cushions, curtains or napkins!

Evey summer over the last couple of years we always get an overdose of tropical prints, including plants, animals and fruit. Although this trend never really goes away throughout the year we tend to notice it more now.

This year we have seen it is less about the bright colours and clashing prints and more a subtle take on what’s gone before, with layering prints and textures in different shades of green.

Green on green action is big this year, whether it’s tableware on complimentary table linens, art and ornaments layered against a wallpaper backdrop or tiling in a bathroom with similar tone bath towels and accessories. The calming and refreshing colour of green mixed with patterns in different shades will bring an exciting and bold look to any room.

And then on top of that fill your home with indoor plants – real or faux – to get the maximum look.
