Since the fall weather has finally arrived we figured a leaf napkin fold would be the most fitting (get a head start on that fancy Thanksgiving dinner you’ll be hosting this year).
So for this fold, as usual, you’ll need one of our 20×20 solid polyester napkins and a napkin ring. You might also need an iron if you prefer sharp folds/creases.
In this version I didn’t iron the napkin, but if you iron the creases at each step, you’ll end up with a much sharper look.
Step one: fold the napkin in half (with the open end facing away from you)
Step two: fold the top right corner down to the middle (top layer only)
Step three: do the same with the top left corner
Step Four: flip the napkin over
Step Five: fold the top edge down to meet the bottom edge (top layer only)
Step six: fold the bottom right corner approximately half-way up (top layer only)
Step seven: repeat step six with the bottom left corner
Step eight: rotate the napkin 90 degrees and begin an accordion fold about an inch wide
Step nine: continue the accordion fold – this part can be tricky, and may be where the iron comes in handy – just make sure to keep all the layers together.
Step ten: add a napkin ring
Step eleven: fluff and adjust the “leaf” to your liking
Add it to your place setting, and there you have it! Consider using a variety of napkin colors to enhance your fall table scape!
