Sucker for Seersucker


My sister-in-law, she of the very big brain and very good taste, sent me this link.  The conundrum?  Color, of course, but also being betwixt and between on wanting to use them and risking the barbecue stain.  I say throw caution to the wind.  And serve cucumber sandwiches.

Wonder if my dear husband would take note of a missing pair of pants in lieu of a set of dinner napkins?
Love the look.

Penny - she is in D.C. and here is some strong design DNA running through the family. Their grandmother and aunt had/have amazing taste as well.

And, Patricia, I actually love this idea.

Fantastic! And you know that K.Spade would be all over these.
Seersucker to the summer rescue!!

I think they'd be great in grey /white seersucker with black or white rickrack trim...just take fabric to a local seamstress and have them made up. ( If I remember correctly, your outdoor theme is black and white)

Love all things Kim Seybert does....but these have to be my favorite napkin I've seen. I'm totally a sucker for seersucker....must be a Southern thing!

Heading your way next week - for a birthday luncheon, a quick spin around the Plaza then out west to Manhattan for the rest of the week!
