How To Fold A Napkin Several Fancy Ways

Ever wonder how to fold a napkin for your dinner parties, or when you host the family holiday dinner?

how to fold a napkin in 5 fancy ways

I have to say I normally don't give folding napkins a lot of thought, except maybe on special occasions.

However, the videos below make it look pretty darn simple, and you don't need too many items to do it.

To fold these cloth napkins into one of several fancy shapes you need the following:

  • Cloth napkins (dinner size that are big enough for multiple folds)
  • Iron
  • Starch
  • Napkin ring (needed for the fleur de-lis and orchid folds only)

This might be a fun thing to do with the kids once they are a bit older, a nice tradition for big family meals.

So, here are the how-to-videos for how to fold napkins. Which one is your favorite? (Mine is the orchid fold, so I have it first.)

How To Fold Napkins Like An Orchid

Like I said, this is my favorite fold. I especially like how they used a purple napkin to demonstrate, which adds a nice touch.

How To Fold Napkins Like A Silverware Pouch

I think the kids would enjoy passing out the napkins and silverware if it is all tucked into a pouch this way.

I also really like the diagonal folds on the front of the pouch which look complex, but seem suprisingly simple to create (at least from watching the video).

How To Fold Napkins Like A Lily

This is a classic fold, and it is perfect for Thanksgiving I think.

How To Fold A Napkin Like A Christmas Tree

I've seen this fold in restaurants before, and always wondered how they did it.

How To Fold Napkins Like A Fleur De Lis

I saved another of my favorites for last, with this pretty Fleur De Lis fold. Looks so pretty on the plate!
