A delightful vintage paper napkin

One thing I loved about growing up in the 1950s and 1960s was that so many lovely paper goods were available for holidays.  Today, it's sort of like that again.  I have found very pretty paper napkins at the Christmas Tree Shop, Dollar Tree, and even Walmart.  But it's hard to beat the vintage paper goods from the mid-twentieth century, don't you agree?

I recently found a small and long-stored stash of vintage paper goods in my dad's cupboard.  Not anything he will ever use.  These napkins (which have a matching tablecloth) have a scalloped edge and a pretty design of gold stars along with a border of pine needles, holly, and little green pine cones.  So sweet.  These are Party Papers by Pakay, and a package of 25 napkins cost 30¢ back in the day.  I was intrigued to see that these were manufactured by the Nashua Corporation in Nashua, NH.

Hope you've enjoyed this vintage treat as much as I did.  What a fun find!


  1. Beautiful! I love the scalloped edge.

  2. I really like these - of course I'm partial to anything vintage!

  3. Glad you enjoyed seeing these, ladies. I thought they were just beautiful.

  4. Glad you like the napkin, Luludou. I love anything vintage!
