Serviette/Napkin, Laid Back and Breezy

READY IN: 2mins
Recipe by kiwidutch

Between the teachings of my Grandmother, an Aunt, my Mother and several restaurants I learned a lot about serviette/ napkin folding.. Now that I have already posted all the napkin folds I know, I decided to look on the net for some new ones to learn. This one is very simple and so so easy.

I love all of this step by step napkin folding. It is so easy and quick. If it is a napkin I like to place them in a hardback book for about 10 minutes just so they keep their shape. Thanks for posting. Miss Pixie x x x :D

Ingredients Nutrition

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


  1. Take your square napkin, lay it totally flat before you, then fold it in half horizontally.
  2. Fold again, this time vertically so that you have before you a square a quarter the size of your original square.
  3. Only one of the 4 corners will have 4 open or loose edges. Rotate the square before you so that the four open edges are in the top right corner.
  4. Take the top right and bottom right corners and fold them over to meet the top left and bottom left corners. You will now have before you a small vertical rectangle with the crease on the right.
  5. Take the topmost of the 4 loose flaps and bring it to the right in a fan shape, then repeat with the other three flaps making sure that each one is folded a little shorter then the first, giving a simple layered effect.
  6. Place on a plate.
