Top 100 Step-By-Step Napkin Folds
A gorgeous table begins with beautiful napkin folds.
Knowing how to execute a perfect napkin fold is not a skill everyone has, but it’s one you can easily and quickly teach yourself — with Denise’s help, of course! Napkin folds immediately bring a touch of elegance, whimsy or retro style to your table. And they take your table setting to the next level with no added expense — you’re just learning dozens of clever new ways to present the napkins you have.
The 100 folds are divided into easy, intermediate and advanced sections, so you’ll know which ones to start with and how to work your way up. Simpler is often better, and the most formal folds, in fact, tend to be relatively easy. And when you’re using napkins with an elaborate pattern or design, a simple fold may show it off best. The concealed wire-o hardcover format means the book lies flat when open, making following instructions a breeze.
Like a handwritten thank-you note, napkin folds might be less common than they once were, but they’re always noticed, always appreciated and always in style.
