Another random question for you all....Our reception is in Portland so we have had sort of a "rope" theme going on - on our invitations, etc.I'm looking for some dark blue rope, about 3/8 of an inch thick, to tie the napkins with.  Believe it or not, this feels like an impossible thing to find.  Anyone have any ideas on some stores in Portland that might have this or online (at a cost effective price)?Thanks so much!

    My first thought was also a boating supply store.  I bet they'd have more of a bright blue, than a dark blue, though.

    Some boating rope tends to look and feel a little more plasticy, which may not be what you're going for. Could you spray paint white rope the color you want?

    What about a store that sells curtains or fabric? They usually have braided tie-backs (in fact, I've seen them in Big Lots, even).The only other thought I had was to buy some navy blue yarn and make braided rope yourself. But that's a bit labor-intensive...Good luck!
