Tablescapes: Napkin Rings

Napkin rings are a great and inexpensive way to add depth, color, and interest to a tablescape.  Whatever the feel or theme of your wedding (or any kind of event for that matter) you can find a napkin ring to enhance your decor.  

Etsy is an amazing resource for unique napkin rings, from vintage to modern, handmade to custom made.                                                                                          
You can go with something as simple as a silk flower:
