Extra Tips

  • To place these two napkins on the table, place the swan napkin on top of the plate. Position the fan napkin above the main plate in the middle. Now your guest has two napkins which they can use while eating.
  • We recommend using a thick cloth for this napkin fold. If you don't have one, tissue paper will do or cloth napkin that is starched.
