    If I were wandering around to different stations and didn’t have an assigned seat, I guarantee you I’d lose track of my cloth napkin in a matter of minutes. I think it’s more realistic to assume that people will go through a few paper napkins rather than be able to stick with one cloth napkin. However, if you like the look of a table setting with cloth napkins, you could always have both: cloth at the tables and paper at the stations.

    Unless you have a shit ton of cloth ones (you could leave them by the stations) I’d do paper.

    cloth will look nice for photos. That’s it.  So fairly pointless.  But if you want them, I highly recommend you just do both – have the cloth ones at the seats and the paper ones at the stations for people to pick up as needed (remember spills and things tend to require napkins as well).

    Cloth napkins set at the tables, square paper napkins for the bar/drinks only. Just a preference though. If it really is strictly appetizer, all paper is totally fine. Perhaps get that thick paper kind that almost feels like cloth?
