DIY Weddings: Napkin Fold – Maple Leaf

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 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.

Add it to your place setting, and there you have it! Consider using a variety of napkin colors to enhance your fall table scape!
