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. For neater presentation use ironed napkins for this fold. This one is one that a friend of mine who did origami called the Lily Pad Flower ( Thanks Marie!) I subsequently taught it to another friend who's mother would lay in the center of the finished flower, a small tea-light candles on thick little round metal disks that they originally got from an Central Otago blacksmith in New Zealand in the 1930's. I personally use this one as a base on which to stand water glasses on the table.
