Extra Tips

  • Napkin too soft to make ridges? You can iron, and even starch, your cloth napkins to make it stiffer. If you don't have thick napkins to fold a leaf, use tissue paper napkin instead. You could also turn it into a leaf origami by using plain paper if you want!
  • It is best to present the leaf on the plate and not to put the cutlery next to the napkin.
