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!
To add even more bling, we also added a buckle to the sash on this chair.
And there you have it! An elegant setting for whatever events the new year will bring!
