3. The Twist

Want more of a statement piece, twist and tuck your napkin and lay directly on the plate.

4. The Triangle Fold

Go angular and clean with a triangle fold. Minimal linen, maximum impact.

5. The Knot

Elegant but approachable, just tie the top 1/4 portion of your napkin in a loose knot. Let the bottom "tail" of your napkin drape widely on the plate for an approachable effect.

6. The Square Fold

Simple does it. Fold your napkin in a clean square that perfectly hits the edges of your dinner plate. The amount of linen showing really softens the look, while the sharp edges are a nice contrast.

7. The Tie Fold.

Take an artistic, angular approach with the tie fold. With one edge trailing down the side of the tablecloth, you'll create an interesting visual for the full tablescape.

8. The Wrap

Integrate some natural elements with the wrap fold. Twist and fold your napkin, then wrap with a piece of greenery or twine.
