Step 3: Cut 2-Inch Pieces with Straight Edge Scissors for the Napkin Rings

Once you have your designs cut out, use the straight edge scissors to cut them into 2-inch wide strips. These will form the base of your napkin rings.

To add a cute and decorative touch, take your scalloped edge scissors and trim the long edges of each strip. This will give your napkin rings a lovely, finished look.

Roll your napkins neatly and wrap a napkin ring strip around each one. Secure the ends with a small piece of transparent tape.

Refreshing Strawberry-Infused Water

Keep everyone cool and hydrated with strawberry-infused water. This simple yet elegant drink is made by adding sliced or whole strawberries and green leaves of mint to a pitcher of water. Let it sit for a few hours to allow the flavors to meld. Serve in clear pitchers so the beautiful red berries can be seen floating in the water, adding a decorative touch to your drink station. This is the perfect way to keep your guests refreshed throughout the party.

Vintage Native Strawberries Sign

To enhance the theme, incorporate a vintage native strawberries sign. This rustic piece of décor adds a charming, nostalgic touch to your party setting. It’s a perfect backdrop for photos and a conversation starter that adds to the overall aesthetic.
