Between the teachings of my Grandmother, an Aunt, my Mother and several restaurants I learned a lot about serviette/ napkin folding.. Works well with cloth napkins, or larger paper ones. I have included step-by-step photographs to illustrate/suppliment the written directions. For neater presentation use ironed napkins for this fold. This is informal elegance at it's easiest and best.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 paper, serviette (large)
  • 1 cloth, serviette (large)
  • 4 ribbon, strings


  1. Lay your serviette square out flat before you.
  2. Pick up the napkin at the very cental point, letting the 4 corners hang loosely but fairly evenly.
  3. Tie either at the half way point or about 1/3rd of the way from the central point, depending on how big your serviette is and what looks best accordingly.
  4. Insert flower(s) of your choice for additional elegance.
