Holiday Napkin Folding Ideas

Decorating for the holidays can leave you feeling overwhelmed. You might forget about the little things such as napkins. Paper napkins and plain folded cloth napkins are simple compared to the added touch a neatly and themed folded napkin. Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas are holidays where you might have guests waiting at the table for a feast. Spice it up a bit with a folded napkin to fit the holiday.

Easter Napkins

Fold the napkin into an Easter bunny for the holiday. Adults enjoy this adorable creation just as much as the kids. Starch the napkin ahead of time to make it more durable. Fold the napkin in half, then fold it once more in half to create a rectangle. Fold the right and left sides to meet in the centre, creating a point, then repeat with the opposite corners to create a diamond. Pull the side corners inward to create a shape similar to that of a kite. If you flip the napkin around you should see the bunny ears. Fold the point opposite of the ears to the centre. Fold the right side in into the centre and repeat with the left side, tucking it gently into the right side. Turn it right side up. Play around with the bunny's ears to create depth and character.

Thanksgiving Napkin

Purchase napkins in autumn colours and create this simple yet elegant Thanksgiving napkin fold. Fold the napkin in four quarters. Fold two corners centre-ward. Take the top third corner and fold it backwards. Tie a ribbon of the autumn colour of your choice around the napkin and slip a sprig of fall berries, wheat or an autumn leaf through the ribbon. Enjoy your Thanksgiving dinner with family and friends while dining elegantly.

Halloween Napkin

Pick out Halloween decorated napkins or simply orange, black and purple napkins for this spooky yet simply adorable napkin fold. Take the napkin and fold it diagonally. Bring the two wider corners of the triangle to the centre. Fold the two sides into the centre to create a cone shape. Tie to secure with ribbon, wheat, or cord. Tuck some spooky decor in the middle, such as skeletons, spiders or bats. If you want to take a less spooky approach, you can tuck a corn husk, mini gourds, wheat or pumpkin decor in the middle.

Christmas Napkin

Create a Christmas poinsettia napkin to get in the merry mood. This treasure is simpler than what it seems. Pick out a red napkin. Fold all four corners into the centre of the napkin. Press your finger firmly onto the centre of the napkin while bringing out the flap to the end of each corner and this creates a flower appearance.
