    Thanks so much for sharing this with us..I'm sure a lot of us have attended formal functions or eaten at an upscale restaurant where some of these folding techniques have been used, and we wondered how they were done. A serviette napkin is a term I'm not familiar with. Is it a specific size of napkin or shape?

    I bet you wouldn't be able to use a napkin that has some polyester in it for any of these folds. Bet it requires a napkin that is made of cotton or linen fabric?

    Sorry everyone, I never got a notification that there were replies to this thread, so never saw this earlier...

    In some parts of the world these are called "serviettes" and in other parts they are called "napkins" so I wrote a '/' in the title so that both names would come up when people did a search on zaar . icon_biggrin.gif

    I'm not certain if mine all are all cotton or not... sorry, I can't check because I cut the labels off since I have folds where the labels sticking out are annoying in the finished serviette... They are cotton, I think...

    No it's nothing to do with the sizes of them ... hope this information helps ...

    I hope that everyone else who has been making these has been having lots of fun making their table decorations wonderful for your special occasions... wave.gif

    Hello Ladies,
    I stumbled on this forum (wasn't even certain what a 'forum' was in the first place!) this evening while admiring the Thanksgiving menu and discovered the napkin folding ideas. They are astonishingly creative.
    Ladies: Thank you so very much for sharing your valuable time instructing those of us (i.e., me) who are "napkin challenged" but really appreciate the fun and the artistry.
    I also love the introduction I have had to the concept of forum. It is basically sharing ideas and by doing so it is possible to make friends too.
    Thank you again. I am folding tonight and having a ball doing so. My 27 year old daughter
    started laughing at me when I told her over the phone. She said: "Mom, you're doing WHAT???" To which I smugly replied: "It's a lost art", and I am now working to preserve and keep it alive.... icon_lol.gif What fun.
    Love y'all.

    Aren't these napkin folds wonderful?? I love trying out all the different ones and they're really not as hard as they look. Your reply to your daughter was brilliant. icon_lol.gif

    Thank you for the reply, Dreamgoddess.
    You are a dead ringer for the lovely and beautiful Marie Osmond,when she was very young.
    Hey, Mama's still folding this morning. I am wondering if I can parlay this into a profitable part-time position somewhere.... icon_lol.gif
    Have a wonderful day. icon_smile.gif

    I wish I would of seen this in time for my dinner party last night! I wanted to fold my napkins in a cool new way, but I couldn't do it...so I just wrapped some beads around the napkins! I will be trying some of your ideas in the near future! Thanks for this great post! I have a picture, but I can't figure out how to post it here! icon_sad.gif [/img]

    Lillian, what a pretty table! I wish I could see photos of the whole tablesetting. I really like your napkins with the beads on them.

    Try this when typing your post...when you add in your link for photos, highlight it and then click on on the "Image" button above the post box. Then preview your post and see if the photo shows up in the post.

    If this doesn't work, we'll try something else.
