The way a napkin is folded at a place setting helps to set the mood for any meal. A simple half fold laid crisply on a white plate and you’ll probably be dining on a contemporary meal. A napkin loose on a plate and probably a messy yet simple meal is ahead. But, a napkin folded on a plate like the one I’m going to show you below means the meal to come is going to be something special!
Fold napkin in half diagonally to create a triangle. Keep monogram at point.
Fold bottom corners of triangle up to create a square. The fold should cover the monogram.
Turn crease to back so that monogram is at the back. The front should be blank.
Fold up to create another triangle. Crease should be at front.
Fold right bottom corner across and tuck into left bottom corner.
Stand napkin up and fold sides down to hold in position. This will expose the monogram.
Let your napkin set the mood for your meal!
