Napkin Folding for the Holidays

Over the next few weeks there will be many dinners, gatherings and parties to celebrate the holidays. One of the easiest ways to dress up your table is with creative folded napkins. There are lots of ways you can create that special look with just a few folds.

For example, this pocket is made with just four folds of a cloth napkin. Ironing the napkin will make it easier to press the folds in.

1. Fold your napkin into quarters.

2. Fold the top two layers down an inch, and then another inch to make a double layer.

3. Fold the back two layers backwards, tucking behind and leaving one inch showing above the first fold.

4. Fold each side back behind to make the pocket. Tuck in your silverware.

Decorate with seasonal pieces like floral picks or embellished place cards.


  1. That's so cute, Laura! On Thanksgiving we'll be with many family members and happily, lots of them will be children. I think my great-niece, a Miss Cami Weber, age 10, will enjoy folding the napkins like this with me! Then, right after the prayer, I'm going to have her read aloud Ezekiel 3:2 .... "So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll." Yowza! I love the rolls.
