If, like me, you’ve always wanted to level up your hosting game but don’t know where to start, one foolproof way to do so is to upgrade your paper napkins to cloth ones. They instantly add a sophisticated touch to your tablescape while tying everything together — regardless of whether or not your dishes and flatware match. There’s a whole range of options to choose from, but if your aesthetic skews a little bit country, check out the Six Bells, the Brooklyn boutique for all things cozy and cottagecore, which is running a dining and cooking sale this Presidents’ Day that includes this checked set of four napkins and four placemats. While the color scheme is a bit autumnal, I think they’d still work great during this not-quite-spring shoulder season — and beyond. Strategist readers get an exclusive 25 percent off discount with the code STRATBELLS — and can even shop a day early — making this eight-piece set a very enticing $42.
