DIY Weddings: Napkin Fold – Triangle Pocket

Here’s a simple napkin fold for any event. The Triangle Pocket Fold leaves a clean, finished look and can be used in many different ways. The pocket can be accented with flower, a menu, or even hold the silverware.

To start you need one of our 20×20 Solid Polyester or Satin Polyester Napkins. In these photos we used the Navy Solid Polyester (below this first image we have more detailed instructions).

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 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

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 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

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