My Favorite Napkin Folding Book
This book features tons of new and old napkin folds with gorgeous pictures and step by step, clear instructions. I have used it many times and have no problem recommending it.
If you want to add some whimsy, flair or color to your table setting, this book will show you how!
For a small to medium sized dinner party, consider embellishing your napkin fold with a bauble, flower, ribbon, or faux jewel. Then, guests could keep them as favors after the party!
Leaf Napkin Fold
The color of napkin you use, determines the best occasions to use the Leaf Napkin Fold. If you use golds, reds or oranges, it is perfect for Fall and and the Thanksgiving holidays.
If you choose to use vibrant greens or yellow greens, it is perfect for Spring occasions such as Easter and Mother's Day.
