Extra Tips

  • The color of the napkin you'll be using will set the theme for your table setting. Pink can denote springtime while orange can represent autumn.
  • Make it extra festive for Christmas by sticking a star on top of each tree. Cut a star on any craft paper then use tape to stick it to the top.
  • Be creative on how you want to decorate this tree. It doesn't have to be for Christmas!
  • Napkin not standing up? It may be due to it's stiffness. Use a thick, stiff piece of cloth or paper napkins instead! You can also starch the cloth napkin by making your own mix of starch and water. Spray it evenly on a flat surface, then iron it with an ironing board. You can also get ready-made starch spray from the store or make your own by mixing equal parts starch and water in a bowl. Then evenly coat the napkin with the mixture on a flat surface until it dries entirely, being careful not to get any of it onto your hands before drying
  • Paper napkins are alright especially if you're in a pinch. But in a windy place, this will be problematic. Indoors are okay for paper napkins but outdoor dining might not be,
  • Enjoy folding! We have dozens of napkins for you to discover.
