6 Easy Napkin Folding Techniques To Impress Your Guests


Are you ever too crunched for time to pay attention to place settings? Maybe you're just looking for a way to spice up the same old dinner table. Whatever your reason, these six napkin folding techniques are fast, simple and sure to impress. Grab some square linens, watch the video and find the perfect fold to set the scene at your next dinner.

1. Fleur de Lis Napkin

You'll need to find some napkin rings for this one but if you've got a few, the fleur de lis fold is the perfect way to add some texture to your table. Pretty AND sophisticated, yes please.

2. The Rosebud Napkin

The rosebud looks fancy but really it just involves rolling and more rolling. The only tricky part is getting the right amount of rolls after the first fold so that the napkin end can tuck in easily. That number is usually about five. The rosebud is great any time of year but especially when Spring is in the air and flowers are blooming.

3. Three Point Pocket Napkin

This napkin is so chic and works well to fill up a table when you don't have many courses or dishes to go out. You can place it right in the center of the plate. Try this fold with a striped napkin for an added twist.
