Read on for our top 9 napkin folding techniques that will be so fresh for this holiday season. Check out these pretty pics from Krista Mason and be sure to watch the tutorial videos to re-create these looks on your own! And don’t forget to check out these additional folding techniques as well!
1. Burrito Fold
Best used on napkins with a contrasting edge, creating this style is as easy as rolling up a burrito, which is how it got its name. OK, we made up the name. It’s got a modern, clean feel and will perfectly complement a minimalist table. It’s got to be the simplest of the creative napkin folding techniques around!
2. Simple Knot
The knotted napkin has been a favorite on many wedding tables this year, but would add an organic and unfussy touch to any holiday party tablescape as well. The beauty of this fold is its imperfect perfection. This style looks great with both patterned and solid napkins.
3. Triple Pocket
Who doesn’t love a pocket? A napkin pocket is useful to hold a menu, a pretty sprig of greenery or flower bud. This angular 3-fold style is perfect for bringing a little extra interest to a solid napkin. We absolutely love this creative napkin folding technique.
