DIY Wedding: Napkin Fold – Simple Ribbon

Spring has sprung and as we mention in our last post – so have the pastels! So in this “Simple Ribbon” Napkin Fold we will be featuring our pastel yellow (Maize) napkin as well as our silver charger plate. The maize napkin goes wonderfully with our Charcoal linen. Put it all together and it creates the perfect look for a casual spring event!

This napkin fold is probably the easiest one we’ve done yet! All you need is one of our 20×20 polyester napkins, a charger plate, and a few flowers or other accent piece if you’d like.

Step Three: Fold in half one more time so you have a long, narrow rectangle


Step Four: Take the right side and fold it down (just under half way up the napkin) so the edge is perpendicular with the rest of the napkin


Step Five: Fold the left side down to meet the right making an arrow shape

DIY Wedding: Napkin Fold – Buckle Bow

It’s been a while since we’ve done a napkin fold so I figured we do one with a little more bling to ring in the new year – the Buckle Bow.

For this fold you’ll need one of our 20×20 solid polyester or polyester satin napkins (I used solid polyester), and as the name suggests – a buckle such as our Diamond Buckle.


Step one: To start, lay the napkin flat out on the table with the buckle off to the side and fold the top third down.


Step two: Fold the bottom third up to meet the top edge


Step three: Take the right side and fold it just past a quarter of the way over


Step four: Take the left side and fold it just past a quarter of the way over (the two edges should now overlap just a little bit).


Step five: Accordion fold or gather up/scrunch the napkin in the middle



Step six: With the side that was facing up now facing the middle bar of the buckle, thread the napkin through one side of the buckle so it’s just over halfway down the napkin


Step seven: Fold the napkin down and thread it through the other side of the buckle.


Step eight: This part takes a little fussing around with the fabric to make sure the buckle is on the middle of the napkin and that the edges lay just how you want them to.


Once you’ve got it just right, place it on the charger and you’re ready to go!
