Extra Tips

  • Symmetry is important and it comes down to execution. It’s best to place the napkin in the middle of the main plate. You must make sure that the left and right tips are at the same height and point toward the viewer. If the menu card, food, or something else is placed in the center of the main plate, you could put it at the top left side.
  • You can iron the napkin first. Ironing your table cloth napkin is the first step in preparing for a good dining experience, but it's not all that simple. No guest would want to be presented a wrinkled napkin on their plate.
  • Have fun while folding. It can be a relaxing experience. Folding a napkin is not as hard as you might think! Use this folding method and simple process to iron your cloth napkin and be prepared for any party or occasion.
