red bandana napkin on metal plate
Inspiration Image by Megan Sorel

This is such a clever use of a classic red bandana. I’ve always liked these with their bright red color and white lace-like patterns. When I see one of these iconic handkerchiefs, I think of cowboys. And, I just love how they were used in this western-themed table setting photographed by Megan Sorel. The bright red color really pops against the teal gray tones of the metal plate. And, it’s just perfect that a gray-toned burlap was used for the place setting on a natural wood table. The tiny horseshoe detail is an awesome touch to this look. A dark navy accent in the tie completes the design.

The ‘Red Bandana’ paint palette is a good choice if you’re trying to create a country vibe.

    I couldn’t agree more, this was a clever way to use something no one would think you’d use. It’s beautiful and makes for a fun tablescape. Love this color palette.

      Me too Lora! I’ve always loved red bandanas but never thought to use them as a napkin. Such a clever idea!
