Pretty Napkins and Folds

Pretty Napkins & Folds for Weddings

Napkins and a variation of folds hold a fascination for me. Be them cloth or paper, I always appreciate the time and creativity of an interesting pattern and fold. They contribute so much personality to the table setting. Be inspired!

How clever... using pretty rubber bands to hold down the napkins for a casual, outdoor reception.

love this post! i remember agonizing for weeks over cool way to fold the napkins. thanks for sharing!

Love this post as well!

I love the red and white place settings with the wooden balls down the center of the table. With a lower centerpiece, conversations are easier during the meal. Otherwise, you may run into the awkwardness of talking to a floral centerpiece instead of the bride's irretrievably handsome, single cousin.

My brother's groom's dinner is this weekend, and my mom is planning red bandanas for napkins, tied with a raffia bow - in honor of the couple moving out west after the wedding.

Wow, I didn't know there were so many different ways to fold a napkin. Some of the ways are so innovative and really bring out your wedding colors! Thanks for the inspirations!

I love to see how small details can make such an impact!

Does anyone know the name of the blue napkin fold? It is the second to last image.

I'm looking for how to do this fold too! Thanks

Hi Marie, Thanks for visiting Truly Engaging! I peeked around and I think this type of fold is called "candle". Here is a tutorial and I think if you use the right size napkin, you'll be able to achieve the same look as the lovely blue fold. By the way, your English is just fine! :) Best wishes for your August wedding! Heidi

I would love to know how to fold like the depiction of the blue napkins. Very lovely and elegant. Have anyone found the instructions for this?
