- The cutlery napkin pocket is now finished. It would be best to put the napkin next to the plate as the dishes should be placed there rather than on the plate.
- There are many ways to display a napkin on a table setting. Like other folded napkins, it’s best to place the napkin in the center of the plate. You must make sure that the left and right tips are at the same height and point toward the viewer. If a large food or menu card is placed in the center of the main plate, you could put the cutlery napkin on the right side.
