How to Add Pizzazz to Your Table

Whether you want to jazz up an informal meal or display amply ambiance through sophisticated elegance then I have a book suggestion for you -- Top 100 Step-By-Step Napkin Folds by Denise Vivaldo. This must-have resource for entertaining features step-by-step instructions for easy, intermediate and advanced napkin folding along with fabric suggestions, when to use napkin rings, and where to place the napkins on the table. An added plus is the concealed wire-o hardcover which allows the book to lay flat when it is opened for ease of page browsing. In conclusion, there is an Entertaining Diary section where you can record the date, the table setting theme, napkin fold(s) used additional notes, menu and guests list.

#7 The Bow, pages 32-33.

My first attempt at napkin folding was with #7 Bow from the easy napkin folds section. I chose this red and pink floral bandana with a woven-knot tie. The Bow is is a feminine fold for use at baby or bridal showers, ladies brunch, ladies lunches or tea party. My daughter and I dabbled with a few other folds like the Heart and found it similar to folding paper origami. I think folded cloth napkins add a lovely touch of elegance and charm  to any table setting. Teaching our daughters how to create lovely table settings brings back the much missed etiquette that our culture is lacking today.

You can give it try for yourself with the complimentary sample from Top 100 Step-by-Step Napkin Folds located on pages 32 and 33 in the Easy Napkin Folds section.
