Choose a Group above, or find a Technique by Name.
How to Fold Table Napkins (Serviettes): This new website provides step-by-step animations of forty well known patterns that will grace any dinner table for banquet, wedding, feast or even supper in your own home. Keyboard control of each animation makes the individual steps easy to follow - just pause, make the fold, and continue
Groups: The patterns are grouped according to how the napkins have been stored as well as by their final appearance. Select the group you need from the index above:
Paper or Fabric: Most folding techniques can be used in either paper or wide choice of Fabrics. However, some napkin folds involve making a cuff, e.g., The Elf hat, or The Rose. Then, paper or stiffly-starched fabric may be less suitable.
Difficulty: Some techniques are quick and easy; some are a little more awkward. Therefore, for each group we have also included an Options section ranking them from the easiest to the hardest.
In practice, attractiveness and difficulty are not closely related. In fact, one of the most eye-catching designs, The Tuxedo, is also one of the quickest and easiest to make.
Precision: When using napkins that have been stored folded, e.g., into Quarters, check the accuracy. If the corners don't stack over each other neatly, some designs will not look so neat.
