Need your help and a couple of neat videos.....

Need your help dd is wanting custom designed cocktail napkins for the wedding.  So far though she is running into problems, as companies in the States either want an American credit card or charge an arm and a leg in shipping.  Does anyone know of a company that makes cocktail napkins in Canada that can have a custom design put on them and not cost $100 for 200 of them............OR is there a company in the States that won't charge $50 in shipping (no kidding there) or will accept a Canadian credit card OR is there a reasonably priced company in Britain where we can order from.  In the Britain situation we will get them delivered to my mothers and she will bring them over with her in November.

First let me thank Valerie for bringing this to my attention as prior to seeing it on her blog I had never even heard of this song by Paul McCartney.



I was also sent the photos from this you tube video, it's so different.


Had a bit of a relapse in my recovery on Tuesday.  I felt as though someone had sucked all the energy out of me, so needless to say didn't get much done through the day.  I guess there is always tomorrow.

Oh and finally, check out this online store: Deckchair Stripes, such a lot of fun things on there.

I'll keep my eyes peeled for a company that makes designer napkins here in the UK.

Try contacting Brit blogger Denise Nesbitt, at http://mrsnesbittsspace.blogspot.com/ she designs a lot of wedding stationery and wedding favours, she may be able to help you with the napkins.

Hmm...I don't know of any companies that make custom napkins, but I know that you embroider and maybe you have some friends or even some ladies from church who do as well and you could buy some reguler linen napkins and embroider something on them? Depending on how many of them there are, of course.

I haven't used them but they might be worth a try.

Lovely video's Gill. Sorry I can't help you with the napkins and wish you all the best in locating some at a reasonable cost.

Or have you considered buying plain napkins, and having a custom stamp made - you could use that for all sorts of wedding favours then
