NAPKIN FOLDS WITHOUT NAPKIN RING IDEAS


Goblet Fan Fold.

Fold napkins after you've setout the goblets. Though some very limp fabrics may need to be starched or ironed, this fold looks good with both soft drapery folds as well as crisply ironed folds:

  1. Lay the napkin flat.

  2. Begin accordion folding from the bottom, all the way up to the top. Make each fold about " - 1" wide

  3. Fold the pleated napkin in half.

  4. Insert the napkin into the goblet, folding the first inch or so under to keep pleats secure.

  5. Unfold the XXX pleats and shape into a fan interlock the two center pleats if needed to keep the fan intact.

Knotted Fold

This fold is great for a casual table and also for BBQs using bandanas of colorful dish towels.

  1. Lay the napkin flat on a diagonal.

  2. Bring the top half down to form a triangle with the fold across the top.

  3. Beginning at the bottom, start rolling the napkin up.
    Roll all the way up to the folded edge.

  4. Fold roll in half in preparation for trying the knot.

  5. Loop end through and loosely tie a knot. Adjust the ends if necessary.

Cuffed Roll Napkin Fold

This napkin fold is simple and takes up little space on a holiday table.

  1. Lay the napkin out flat on the diagonal.

  2. Fold the bottom half up so the fold is at the bottom.

  3. At the bottom edge, fold under about 1"-2" toward the back.

  4. At one side begin rolling the napkin.

  5. Continue rolling all the way across.

  6. At the back, secure the left point into the folded cuff. Turn the napkin over for the finished fold.

Standing Fan Napkin Fold

If desired you can use starched napkins and iron the folds for sharper creases.

  1. Lay the napkin out flat.

  2. Fold the left half over so the fold is at the left.

  3. Begin accordion folding at the bottom. Make each pleat about "-1" wide.

  4. Pleat only about ? of the napkin.

  5. Fold the right side in half, underneath.

  6. Fold the top left corner down at an angle. On the right side the edges should stick out about 1" past the fold of the napkin.

  7. Fold this 1" overlap under to secure the pleats and make the "stand".

  8. Let go off the pleats and let the fan out. Adjust, fold.
