The theme is “no more ties!” because, holy cow, this man hates wearing a tie. With a passion.
In that spirit, I present to you a terrible snapshot of my prototype napkin ring.
The colours in the photo are a bit off, but you get the idea. I have three different fabrics: this peacock-feather pattern, a blue argyle, and a green plaid (I think).
Next up: how to turn his ugly old ties into bouquets of flowers for the centerpiece. Or a runner for the buffet table. Or something decorative.
