All Wrapped Up

It's the little things that count—like napkins tied with ribbons and topped with pinecones.

Here's how: Roll each napkin. Cut 7 inches of 1-1/2-inch-wide satin ribbon, adding a little extra so the ends overlap when wrapped around the napkin. Secure with double-side tape. Repeat with 1/2-inch-wide velvet ribbon. Wrap a length of 1/8-inch-wide metallic ribbon around the bottom row of scales of a tiny pinecone, slip the ribbon under the velvet ribbon, and tie in place. Snip ends on the diagonal to finish.
