    kiwidutch's Note:

    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/supplement the written directions. This one was learned while waitressing at the Iron Horse Restaurant in Christchurch, New Zealand in the 1980's.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 paper, serviette (large)
    • 1 cloth, serviette (large)


    1. 1
      Lay your serviette square out flat before you in a diamond shape.
    2. 2
      Take the South point at the bottom and fold it up to meet the North point at the top. You will now have a triangle with the crease at the bottom.
    3. 3
      Take the bottom right hand point of the triangle and fold it up to the North point position. Repeat with the bottom left point. You will now have a diamond shape with a gap running vertically down the centre.
    4. 4
      Carefully turn the serviette over and fold the south point up towards the north point but only 1/3 or 1/2 way up (depending on how big your serviettes are, a larger or smaller fold here as appropriate will look more balanced, you choose which looks best for yours).
    5. 5
      Carefully turn the serviette over and bring both of the bottom points far enough together so that you can slide one of the points into the other, forming a circle.
    6. 6
      Holding the join firmly in place, slip your fingers inside to make the rest even and round so that the top point matches the point on the lower pleated cuff.
