Napkin Color Choice?

Napkin Etiquette and Table Manners for Florida Professionals


Dear TMA,

Recently I have noticed restaurants offering the choice of dark or light napkins. What is the reason for this?

Respectfully yours – Valerie

Dear Valerie,

This is a good question! The reason restaurants offer dark or light napkins is that white napkins leave white lint flakes all over ones black skirt or pants. Therefore, black napkins are the best choice for dark color clothing. They are just going the extra mile!

Sincerely – TMA
