Serviette/Napkin Folding, Easy Make-In-Advance

Serviette/Napkin Folding, Easy Make-In-Advance created by kiwidutch

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 one was the first one that my Grandmother taught me how to make. (I was in my early teens and used to help her with ironing and we would make these as we did the laundry and carefully stack them ready for future use). An easy make-in-advance serviette.

ingredients

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

directions

  • Lay your serviette square out flat before you. Fold it in half horizontally.
  • Take the serviette and fold it in half again vertically so that it is now a small square a quarter the size of the origonal square.
  • Only one corner of the square will have 4 open / loose edges, rotate your square so that it is a flat diamond shape with the open corner pointing downwards. We will call this the South corner, and the top corner opposite North.
  • Take the uppermost of the loose points at the South position and fold it up to meet the North point.
  • Take the next loose point at South position and also fold it towards the north point but stop short of it so that you have a triangle within a triangle.
  • Repeat with the remaining two loose points so that you now have a set of ever decreasing triangles on the front of your triangular serviette. If you have time, press these with an iron so that you have crisp sharp creases ( this does improve the result immensely).
  • Carefuly turn the serviette over and take the bottom right point and bring it up to a central point midway along the edge between the bottom left point and the top at North.
  • Repeat with the remaining corner. Iron the creases.
  • Turn the serviette over again to show off the neat front side.

    I think that Napkin folding was terrific. It looks very difficult and involved,<br/>but provided you have a decent size napkin, it is simplicity itself to make in advance.<br/>Thank you! I am really looking forward to dressing my table on Sunday <br/>when my sons and their wives will come for lunch. Now where's the iron....?
