4 Decorative Napkin Folding Ideas
1. Letter Perfect
Personalize each napkin using a letter stencil and fabric paint (sold at craft stores). To prevent bleed-through stains, wash the napkins first and place a sheet of wax paper under the top layer before you paint.
2. Photo Finish
Cut a two-inch-wide strip from a four-by-six-inch photograph or color photocopy. Roll up the napkin, wrap the photo strip around it, and seal the strip shut with double-sided tape.
3. Bread-and-Butter Note
Fold the napkin into a long, skinny rectangle, then tie it into a loose knot. Write a guest's name on a piece of paper and slip it into the knot, or jot down a sweet note to greet each person at his seat.
4. Classic Server
Fold the napkin in half horizontally, edges facing away from you. Fold the top open edge down to the center fold, then turn the napkin over. Fold in the right side, then the left, so that they overlap in the center. Turn the napkin over again. Fill the pocket with silverware.
