Napkin folding is an easy way to add a special touch to any table, and this step-by-step guide takes out all the guesswork. This clever floral fold can be done with any color napkin, but I just love the feminine polish of pink.

  1. Phyllis,
    This is such a beautiful idea. I always use cloth napkins and table cloths or place mats at home. I fear that we will cease to be a civil society if children eat all their meals from throw-away containers using paper napkins and plastic utensils. I have linen napkins that are many years old (like me) and still look good.
    Love your blog and your magazines.

  2. What a cute idea! Had to try making one and it turned out perfect. Can’t wait to do this the next time I have guests over. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I have a small book on the art of napkin folding. I have never seen the rose !
    My suggestion … beautiful napkins of quality AND allow time ahead to create your special table setting !
    Your guests will thank you . It is the “little things” in life that we remember .

  4. Working in the food service (my husband also), we raised our 4 daughter to use cloth napkins when they were young. It helped when we started to take out to dinner, they too enjoy “Shirley Temples”. I still love my napkins after 45+yrs, pass them on also……..
