Napkin Folding Ideas

A festive dinner also includes table decorations. Of course, you can always roll your napkins and put napkin rings around them - but if you want to go for a fancier design, here are some ideas to turn your table from everyday to festive.

The Lily is a classic yet modern napkin design. It looks a little more complicated to fold, but you should definitely give it a try.

Difficulty level: Medium

Step 1

Completely unfold the napkin and lay the printed or dyed side of the napkin facing down on the table.

Step 2

Fold the napkin diagonally so that it forms a large triangle.

Step 3

Take the right corner of the triangle and fold it upwards, aligning it over the top point. Repeat the same step with the left corner to form a square.

Step 4

Now take the tip of the right fold from the top and fold it downwards so that it now covers the bottom point of the square. Repeat with the left tip.

Step 5

Take the top point of the square and fold it down so that the tip touches the middle fold at the seam between the right and left flaps.

Step 6

Fold the top over once more to overlap the middle fold by approximately one centimeter.

Step 7

Now rotate the napkin 180 degrees.

Step 8

Flip the napkin over so that the folded side faces the table.

Step 9

Roll both sides towards the middle and tuck the right corner into the left corner, underneath the bottom fold.

Step 10

Turn the napkin onto the left side.

Step 11

Grab the top outer tip of the napkin and bring it down carefully, tucking it into the napkin fold.

Step 12

Turn it to the right side and repeat.

Step 13

Once finished, turn the napkin around, so that the folds and seam are facing you again.
