Am I the only person left in America who never decorated a table using the fleur-de-lis napkin fold before yesterday’s post (De-Stressed Thanksgiving Dining)?
Just in case I’m not alone in that, I decided to give a step-by-step tutorial for the fleur-de-lis inside a goblet.
Fold the napkin once, corner to corner.
Take one corner and fold to match it to the middle corner of the triangle.
Repeat with the other corner.
Fold the tip up about three inches.
Folds #5 and #6:
Fold the side points under.
The fold is complete. Gather the napkin base and stuff it inside your stemware. Pull the two points down and away from the center point.
Isn’t that the easiest thing you’ve ever done? Why have I never done this napkin fold before? And, having it inside the glass makes a more dramatic statement than flat on a plate.
Do you like the fleur-de-lis napkin fold? Have you ever used this napkin fold in a tablescape before? (Please tell me I’m not the only one!)
I’m sharing this post at Metamorphosis Monday.
