Entertaining with Style: learn five napkin folds by video


Hello everyone, the other day I stumbled on some quick, little videos that teach you how to fold napkins –-five different folds--and I immediately thought of all of you.

Are you planning a dinner party anytime soon? Maybe something special for Mother’s Day or Easter? If you’re using cloth napkins, this is the post for you.


The napkin in the photo above is called The Standing Fan. If you want to know how to fold this one, you have to click HERE.

Otherwise, click HERE to watch the videos and learn how to fold The Slide, The Mountain, The French Fold, The Pyramid, and The Crown.

Here are a few of my favorites:



The Pyramid Fold: This one brings back memories. When I was waiting tables in college, this was the napkin fold I always had to do at the end of my restaurant shift. Very easy to do, especially when you’re sipping on a cold beer. This standing pyramid can be mastered in just four simple steps.

The Crown Fold: How about all these pretty crowns lined up at someone’s birthday dinner? What an easy way to add that extra ‘wow’ factor. Only, I need to watch the video for this one.


Also, did you know there’s an easy way to fold a napkin so that it looks like a rose? Here’s one of my favorites. I think this would be pretty at a Mother’s Day lunch or a even a small garden party, don’t you? The Stone Gable is a gorgeous blog with all kinds of recipes and ideas for setting your tables and you should definitely check it out. Click here for the Rosette Napkin Instructions.
