There is something fun about reduced price napkins. That might sound a slightly crazy sentence, however the logic behind it is I do like being able to give guests something funky and/or scary to wipe their hands on – which is essential for film and pizza nights!
However I don’t want to spend lots of money on this as that would be silly, and the Scottish blood won’t let me!
(I think these were from Waitrose, they were rather weird)
Usually I got for Halloween napkins as they start off very expensive (£2.50 plus for 20 napkins) and come down predictably. Also monster patterns go down rather well with the horror movie crowd.
However I found some wonderfully awful ones in John Lewis at the weekend – they were called “BBQ napkins” and were decorated with cringe inducing phrases like “bonkers about burgers” and “licensed to eat meat”.
My best guess is that these were intended to appeal to men, specifically non-vegetarian men of pretty much any age over 12 years of age. However as they were heavily reduced I guess they were too cheesy for anyone to actually buy – which is why I got three packs in the sale! I can’t wait to hand them out!
