‘Tis the season for entertaining! These 4 simple but beautiful cloth napkin folds will make your holiday table look oh-so elegant. And they’re not just for Thanksgiving or Christmas, these also help make any special occasion just a little more special, be it Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, an anniversary, or a wedding!

You should also note, that while cloth napkins are square(ish), they’re rarely perfectly square. So don’t fret about getting the folds completely perfect. Napkin folding is very forgiving!

Also, if you are going for the napkin ring fold but don’t have any napkin rings, ribbon, strips of pretty paper, or other items can make beautiful makeshift rings.
