A variety of styles of napkin holders are available, from a traditional napkin dispenser, found in restaurants and diners, to caddies with compartments for each item, such as salt and pepper shakers or flatware. There are also many different materials that can be used to create a napkin basket, such as twine, ribbon or felt. A fabric-covered holder, for example, may be used to match your table linens or even the color scheme of your room, while metal napkin rings are a popular option that can be fastened with twist ties.
